I was pretty apprehensive about tonight. I had the day off, which gave me another chance to fish the night tide. Strong NE wind had been blowing for 24hrs, and I knew my North Shore spot would be shut down. I debated and debated about where to go. I checked the wind, waves, tides over and over. I SHOULD have gone to the south cape, or RI. But I didn't. I decided to take a chance and check out a south shore spot. I've always wondered what it'd look like in a Nor'easter.
Well, the answer is chocolate water and tons of weed. I did find just enough clean water to keep me there for about 2 hours. I fished a bucktail, needle fish, and darter. I waded out to a rock that has produced for me 90% of the time so far this year, and about 60% of the time last year, and got absolutely beat to a pulp. I got knocked down twice and a couple times got very close to getting thrown from my perch. I was tired from the weekend of fishing, and decided to scrap the night when my darter finally came back absolutely covered in weed around high-tide.
The upside: quitting early meant I got almost 9 hours of sleep, which is most I've got for nearly 2 weeks.
