Tuesday Oct. 9, 07 -- Wind whips up a storm -- fish get active, too

Tuesday, October 09, 2007: waves: Very large by late day; the swells went from almost totally flat at midday to five feet and larger by dark, all the result of sudden east winds that reached 20 mph and stayed there.

Sat. Oct 6, 2007: Crowded out there -- and fishing is decent to boot

(This is my one fundraiser of the year. I use it to take stock of what folks think of my website(s) and to cover the time and expense accrued by the site(s).

By the same token, I couldn’t stay up and running…

Saturday Sept. 29, 2007 -- Great weather, modest hooking --

Saturday, September 29, 2007: Waves: 1-2 feet out of the east. Water clarity: Good but with some weedy and off-color patches.
