Getting Spontaneous Luck... Not as Good as Getting it Right!
I went striper/bluefish hunting with fellow salt addict Mark Steiner this evening. The conditions were just garbage, and for that spot the tide was completely wrong. And yet Mark somehow managed to get lucky and got his popper eaten by the only hungry fish around!
That was a nice fish to make up for the generally crummy conditions, but I would rather we had gotten it right and found a lot of actively feeding fish. That just makes things better all around.
