Welcome back...

Tonight ran down to the cape and spent about 4 hours fishing, from roughly 9:30pm to 1:30am, with Carly.  We struck out.  Didn't see any signs of life; Carly tossed the damn SP minnow, and a big black hogy.  I chose to work the shoreline and rock strewn area with my new 8wt fly rod (yeah, I'm obsessed now that we went to the keys).  I tried a couple different patterns, from deceivers, to clousers, to surf candy.  A lot of back casting with the wind coming over my casting shoulder.  Not a bump, and I forgot my freakin' stripping basket so I destroyed my line after I swam out to a rock and it go stuck on the barnacles.  Bummer, but it was on it's way out anyways.  Hoping to get out mid-week this week, since we'll be in Maine this weekend...

“It’s too deep, and I can’t see a damn thing,” I said out loud.
