Weekend Warrior: Catch the (migration) wave

It’s an albie weekend. Again. We’re going to get some fly albies. Will they cooperate? Probably not. But I’m going to keep trying and trying and trying again until we get one to eat, because that’s the definition of insanity. Is this a wise decision—the decision to ignore our striped friends and a possible season-best […]

Weekend Warrior: A different animal

The fall run is chaotic, fickle, wild, urgent. All of those adjectives and about a million more. Our fishing “runs” are typically predictable. There are patterns and templates to be followed. In the spring, we generally know, within a week or two, when and where the stripers will show up. During the doldrums, we have […]

Well, this one hurt. The blitzes this week in the Three Bays were pretty ridiculous, lasting almost two entire tides each day. The fish […]

Miles and miles: The urgency of the Fall Run

We covered some miles this weekend. And we found life almost everywhere we looked. Both days felt very fall-ish, which is not a feeling I can really describe, except to say that the days are getting noticeable shorter, work is getting busier, and the fish (bass blues and bones) are getting hungrier. These conditions do […]

Weekend Warrior: The Run Begins

It may not feel like Fall quite yet, but signs of “The Run” are starting to creep in. But before we talk about what’s to come, let’s go back a bit. A few weeks back, on the new moon of course, big bass came through the canal. Again. This time they were on mackerel. Pretty […]

Report: Stay fly

You always need a plan. Sure, catching stripers–especially of the large variety–is almost always the primary goal. You can say “I really want to catch a big bass on the fly” or “let’s try for stripers tossing spooks around structure .” These are great plans. But last week, when Todd of Dupe a Fish, Geoff […]
