2 Weeks And A 3 Day Bust

I haven’t been writing very much lately because, well there hasn’t been a lot to write about. Last week, the wind from Hurricane Irene made being on the water tumultuous at best and I’ve learned to trust my instincts when it comes to that and stayed off the water 25 knot winds aren’t conditions you should be in while kayak fishing.

Made the most of it though, and went to the grand opening of the new Clearwater Dicks Sporting Goods store. Took advantage of the decent deals on DOA and Mirrolure products and ended up getting around $40 worth of stuff for $20. Ran into some folks who were at the seminar and traded stories and intel about where we fish – great guys!

So you figure that one weekend off the water isn’t that bad, and we’ll “get them next week”, right?

Keith and I did a bit of lunch hour recon the other day to see if we could get our kayaks and gear over the seawall, making it easy on us and not requiring a mile and a half paddle across the ICW to get to the spot where we want to fish. The spot was AWESOME! A mangrove lined mouth of a tidal creek with an oyster bar right down the middle. There was a mass of baitfish all over the area, so it looks promising. The seawall however, yeah that part doesn’t look so good… The word from a reliable source is – night time, incoming tide should equal big snook and redfish.

So the plan is to paddle across the ICW at about 3am to tackle this new spot, but Tropical Storm Lee has other ideas. The forecast is for 20-25 mph winds and seas 4-5 feet; not really something I want to paddle a mile and a half in, so far there hasn’t been any wind to speak of.

I really like my new Mac-Mini! The GarageBand program is awesome and gives me that creative “thing” that I miss about being in a band.

Here’s one of the songs… A sort of Down tempo/Chill Out type of thing that I like to listen to, reminds me of being in the hospital thinking about fishing. Saltwater Therapy
