Underway with a light rail this fine Fourth of July. Calmest it’s been in a week I think.
No complaints that.
Watched some bottlenose for just a few, then the Blanchets out of Severna Park, MD gave today’s reef blocks a mighty shove & off we went.
Survey boat was within 3 miles of where I’d wanted to begin. That reef suddenly not a great option – I pressed on. Now survey noise 5.5 miles away: lines in ..whole rail bowed up.
Like it like that.
Everyone must have caught dinner first stop.
After a short while the current slowed to a crawl. Robust bite turned tepid. Worked hard for the next couple dozen cbass. Once the current picked up the action did as well, but not to what we’d had in the morning—shades of yesterday.
Into overtime, however, the afternoon’s southerly current regained good strength. So too the bite.
Fish always bite better when it’s time to go home.
Almost a boat limit of sea bass.
Jim Gross boxed the first limit. There would be 13 more.
Barbara B took everyone’s pool money. I bet young Joey’s gonna burn through it on the boardwalk though.
That’s a summer thing.
Happy Fourth Y’all..
