    Default My favorite time of year!

    Got to the jetty at 5:30 this morning. Bill was waiting, coffe in hand. Plenty of parking, only a handfull of fishermen lacing up korker, and tieing on flies or plugs, my favorite time of year. I hurried into my waders and laced up my korkers since I was late, as usual. Reports of mullet in the surf convinced me to tie on a Steve Farrar Siliclone, last sip of coffee, lit a cigarette and headed for the water. Action was slow until first light, then it broke. Bait scattered, water started crashing, Billy's Deciever was slammed by a hungry Striper. I barely got a picture off of the action when my reel started screaming, three bass later I left Bill on the jetty and headed into work. Definately my favorite time of year.

    Wait for it...

    They're in there somewhere

    Fish on!
    DEFINATELY MY FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR

    Nice! Not too many things go better with coffee than a smoke and fresh fish.

    It certainly is! Especially now, 3 weeks ago that beach would have had 250 people on it by 8:15. This morning I counted 10 fishermen and 2 joggers, it's a pleasure to have the surf to myself.

    I'm loving that all the way from Alaska!

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.
