20 July 2012

Today was a challenge. I had a trip set up with Tony, Jimmy, and Tom from PA. I called them at 5:15 AM, saying that the wind was blowing 15 to 20 and that the only game in town would be ducking out of the wind behind a piling and bottom fishing. They were agreeable so we took the bumpy boat ride to the bridge.

As expected, fishing was tough but we managed to pull out a few.

Tom was the man and did pretty good throwing a grub but Tony pulled out the only keeper trout of the day on live bait.

You guys tried hard under the conditions we had. You deserved more fish. Jimmy, you are an excellent angler and a well-mannered young man. Thanks for the good company.
