An Unbelievable Evening on the Salt
Even on a day that turns out not to be all that productive, being on Long Island Sound shows just how amazing life is. Dalton and I got to our favorite spot and the flat was perfectly calm. It melted into the grey sky making it difficult to discern the horizon. It was concerning that there weren't fish showing, but I figured we'd find some anyway. We did, there were a few blues mixed in with the massive schools of adult bunker. Though I only managed a single fish it was a decent, hard fighting harbor blue.
What made this evening truly exceptional was the sunset. It was nothing short of epic. I don't think I can find the right words to describe it. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
I was hoping that the bite would really turn on after dark. It didn't, unfortunately. We changed spots and found something unbelievable. The water at our second location was full of glowing green creatures. Moon jellies, thousands of them, made it a very eerie seen in which Dalton would catch the one and only schoolie striper of the night.What a bizarre and surreal night.
