Scarcely any air greeted us among the wharfs this morning; a great blue heron gave a near perfect mirror reflection in still water as we motored away from the marina.
Forecast carried that near-calm into late morning followed by a 150% increase in wind speed come early afternoon. Forecast was spot on too. Writing on the way home—it’s getting fairly nautical.
Daniel & Austin Curry dropped our blocks & pyramids this morning. All bullseyes atop already productive reef for sure. When the water (if) gets clear in August I’ve got to take a day and film some reefs we’ve built.
When I see a mob of sea bass over a block pile, I don’t need video to know something’s working.
William Campbell of Silver Spring MD boxed the first limit today. Certainly a hot hand, might have been our only limit. Gotta play to win though! DJ Hackett won the money – despite several larger sea bass without question.
Everyone who fishes is trying to sort out forecasts next few days as this tropical system moves past. Tropical storms are often difficult to forecast – will make their own rules.
If we lose a day or two I’ll post for just a few volunteers to build pyramids.
Have some great news coming from that front. The pyramid project is about to get a major boost!
