Weekend Warrior: The Last Waltz

It’s feeling like the end of something. This weekend, we’ll most likely get our last decent weather window to target some buzzer beater stripers. We’ll be out there, but I’m not sure what to expect.   This has been a year of just that. I’m working on a season reflection now, but the patterns of […]

Weekend Warrior: Blowin’ in the Wind

Kinda feels like the end, doesn’t it? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I keep getting the questions. Where are the fish going to be after the storm? Will it blow the migration out to sea?

Fish Stories: Dumb luck

Past Report: October ebb tide

Success in October is a narrow beam of light. Urgency. Last round. You don’t have to leave but you probably should before the month is over, because the bass are few and the weather is usually less than ideal.

We press out into the full moon night with two hours of darkness ahead of us. It’s muggy for October and the boat pushes soundlessly through the water; dirty yellow circus lights from the powerplant to the starboard, clean moonlight refracting the still water to the port.
