Had a good three hours out there today before we take off tomorrow. As is normal, I was the only one fishing the beach. This is not a fly fishing hot-spot. The beach is left to the tourists. I hardly saw a local out there this year, although that may be partly due to the dramatic changes at the river-mouth this year.
Today I picked up some Jack Crevalles, as is normal, and several Pompano. Usually I get a single pompano if I get any, but today I had 4 or 5. I also picked up a new fish… likely a young Green Jack.
It was a good trip, despite a nice cold that sat in the noses of my wife and I for most of the trip. We had a lot of pool time with the little girl (she wants to stay, forever… just wants me to bring the dog down). We actually got off the resort a tiny bit to get my daughter to see her first wild crocs… which was kind of cool.
We’ll be back… and next time… I really, really want to get out on the bay… probably with a 10 weight (11?). I’d like to land a Mahi Mahi… 2011 could be the year.
