reeldick and I made the rounds today. Started at O'Darkthirty below Frenchmen's where we saw about 13,347 rods with nary a takedown for for the first few hours.

We moved up to the head of the channel where the bite was decidedly better. I managed a Coho on a cut plug - Fin clipped even. Of course it was all of 4" long and my cut plug was larger than it! That is going to one agressive salmon if it actually gets to adulthood!

After seeing one fish caught there for a couple hours effort, (and being told that there was an OK early bite) we decided to pack up and take the highways back toward home to fish in the "back yard" in the OC area.

There we heard more tales of a good bite last night and this morning, but other than one guide who managed two fish while back bouncing, no other fish came out of the garbage hole.

We decided to cut our losses and rest up for another trip in the morning.

But tomorrow is going to be better! Why? Because of the old saying,

"Red at night, Sailor's delight!"



Got this shot off the back patio just before dark...

We had to go out and look because it was glowing red outside. Thought maybe the neighbors house was on fire. Cool sunset.

STG -

That was a really almost surreal sky, wasn't it? The whole sky was lit up!

Mikey, so you think I should be taking lessons from you in the NFL, eh? Nice job on the fish!

And UG, I am the weekend warrior, unfortunately. I can go in back some nights after work. You name it and you have a seat!

:cheers:
