Middle of October: A Critical Month Part II

As usual, I'm behind in blogging.  I'm on a "break" from being an adult- I decided to wait a bit to look for a job, live on my savings (with the most supportive wife ever), and fish my ass off.  As of writing this (October 26) I have only missed 3 nights in the entire month of October.  It hasn't been great, but I've caught a bunch of schoolies and small keepers.  Read on!

October Full Moon: A Critical Month Part I

Robins first keeper of the night
The beginning of October, and a Full Moon.  Prime time.  For me, it often yields one of the biggest fish of the year.  Last year I had two fish over 30lbs during a single tide, and one I’m calling 40lbs even though I didn’t have a boga.  It was over 45”, likely something like 47".  So what about this year?  I’ll cover the period from October 1 to October 9 in this post, and next week I’ll do another on the middle part of the month.

Before I get in October, let's talk about September!

Without further detail, I'll let this drop: I am currently without a job.  This has been a trying time in my life, and it's lead to both more and less fishing.  More because I have more time, less because I suddenly find my life on it's head and I have had trouble getting myself out of the house at times.  Add in a dying fishery, and motivation has waxed and waned.



That being said, September was boom and bust....

Photography Finalist...and I didn't know it!

Too late to vote, but my photo I submitted to the Orvis September 20 Days competition was chosen out of the hundreds of photos as a top 10 finalist.  How cool is that?  I'm still waiting to see if I placed in the top 3 and if so I win a prize- first place is a really nice Helios fly rod.  Voting closed today, and I just found out I was even selected!  Still going to post because I'm pretty proud.  My photo is the striped bass, and I was the only salt water finalist.
