Blue Sky Schoolies
October 13, 2013 - Finally, a calm day with blue skies. I launched about an hour past high tide to fish the outgoing. I picked up three fish in the first 20 minutes at a spot that's proven quite reliable over recent weeks. I then pedaled into a section of the marsh I hadn't yet fished but was told held some big fish. Alas, no biguns for me today but a boatload of schoolies to 22". I know this water holds big fish, the locals keep regaling me with tales of monsters taken on live pogies. I may need to tie some larger flies and change up my technique a bit. They say practice makes perfect. At least this kind of practice is a blast.

Heck, I could catch 22" stripers all day and be happy. We had stockers when I was in Tx., but I've never caught a wild one. We get your blues and albies, but not stripers. Tell those lazy SOBs to migrate south to florida for the winter. We have rum.:D
