Saturday Aug 6

Just another week of fishing in a big muddy puddle filled with Sharks. On top of that, the weather has pretty much soaked us down every day at some point. I’m over all the rain. Even my yard and foliage have had enough. But wait,, here comes some more by early week. I honestly can say that I cant remember a wetter summer than this. And yes, it can adversely affect the fishing due to fresh water run off. The Shrimpers aren’t out because of the lack of shrimp, and in turn, its hard to locate the larger Sharks that we hook up behind the trawlers. While we have caught a fair amount of Sharks this past week, most are less than 40lbs and with many being half that size. The Mackerel bite that we enjoyed has also dwindled, even though we haven’t been able to get off the beach due to stormy conditions, I’ve heard the larger boats have been striking out. I’m hopeful to see some more Mackerel in our nearshore areas as well as some Jacks that normally show up in our waters at about this time every Summer. This remains to be seen. Until then, looks like Sharking will be the mainstay, and it beats not catching anything at all. Now if only it will stop raining.  Oh well, time will tell.
