They're back ....
« on: October 29, 2017, 03:23:52 PM »

Nothing like a little late October rain to make me forget about what a shitty fishing year I've had!  2 LL's today in the rain - love these fish!  Both males around 16" and aggressive - missed 2 others.  Love that place this time of year ....

Yep - never caught 2 in one day before, had a blast!   :lockit

Other high point was actually catching fish on the 7 weight Tom Morgan rod I built a year ago (1st fish on it) - LL's jumping on the other end of a glass rod is just the best!

I love the blank - so fun to fish in situations like this. Easily handles weighted streamers, can handle big girls if they show, but does not overpower a 16" fish. 

And I love it paired with my Streamline reel - everything just feels right about this set up!

Nice was that from today???

We opted to hit the salt one more time and did very well. Fish were breaking all afternoon with gulls chasing them around.

Nicely done Jay!!!

I really wanted to get out and target some of those bad boys. How has it been? Lot of fish in the water?
