|The calmest place... devoid of predators.|
Thursday, August 25, 2016
Dan and I did something rather ill advised this morning. Instead of carefully focusing on weather forecasts up until we went to bed last night, we both trusted a forecast I looked at at about 10:30 a.m. yesterday... and boy was that an inaccurate one! Instead of light winds and glass calm surface when we got to the flat at 4:45 this morning there was winds of a steady 10 knots gusting to 20 and, for an early morning on LIS some rather obnoxious surf. We went to the an East facing beach for a little while and it seemed dead. Then we went to River's End and talked to Mark for a little while. He confirmed there had been very little bird play on the East side of the Connecticut so we went back to the spot we had just left because it was at least calm there. Maybe we could at least get some sea robins or fluke. Dan got one robin, I got two snapper blues. We went back to the beach because in the daylight we could actually negotiate the surf. We caught nothing but were successful in finding structure that will no doubt produce some stripers when the fall run is actually on.
