Hampered By Wind, Saved by Sunfish

I tried to see if the snapper blues are still in Essex today. It was really windy.  I didn't get a single pull.



My alternative was to sight fish for bluegills, pumpkinseed, and crappie. I put on a cinnamon Kate McKlaren and it did it's job brilliantly. The big crappie way the highlight of the morning.




I also checked out a little black-water creek flowing through a ditch along the highway, I have seen some fish moving around in it before. I suspect they are redfin pickerel due to the type of stream. I was unable to hookup today.

    1. You give me far more credit than I deserve.

  2. Any advice on how I can get to the Low Country Manifesto document you referenced the other day? Always interested in first-person accounts of news stories the media may or may not be handling well. Thanks, and great fun, reading your adventures!

    1. There is no Lowcounty Manifesto, but you can click the link to get "The Fiberglass Manifesto", which is a fly fishing blog, and Cameron Mortenson's post explaining a fund raising campaign for flood relief via the sale of photographs taken during the flood.
