I'm busy and can't get caught up, so here's a quick end of August re-cap.
Aug 19/20 I fished north shore one night and south cape the next. I found very few fish- couple schoolies at each spot. I did catch a very nice black fish- nearly 25"- on a bucktail. I worked really hard on the North shore and stuck it out way longer than I wanted in hope that I'd catch incoming fish. One dinky 20". Ugh! North shore has been TERRIBLE this year. I mean everywhere has but the north shore especially has been truly terrible. I think I'm honestly going to give up and stay south. Very sad.
Aug 28 I fished a spot I know well. It's been sucky. Tonight, it was ok. Well, for 2016 it was good really. I caught 4 fish in the 27-28" range and a dozen more in the 20-25" range. All on red gill teaser/mag darter combo. It was REALLY REALLY dark out. And I was freaked out due to my run in with the junky at the other spot weeks before. I have never seen anyone here but still- it was DARK. Stayed later than I wanted simply because I was hoping, foolishly, that something might happen and a big girl would show. Yet, the fish only got smaller as the night progressed.
I am off for TWO weeks coming up and will report back.
