After this much rain we have very strong 12 foot tides and that translates into very dirty water. I had trouble today finding suitable venues for casting there was so much flotsam on the surface and, more importantly, the water looked like swirling barley soup. In these conditions I had no choice but to:
1. fish as close to the mouth of the river as possible so as to avoid the thickest goop
2. return to the ramp at a reasonable hour so that I could fire up the Briggs & Stratton and mow the lawn
We caught fish but I'm not bragging about the count.
I predict that Saturday will be a breakout day.
