One of those magical Fall nights.

Clear. Cool. Calm. Full moon. and fish EVERYwhere.

provided I could stay out of the weeds and not get smashed by a rising tide roller, it was a fish every 2-3 casts. nothing huge, but lots of fun.

actually stopped fishing b/c I was foul-hooking so many fish. not intentionally of course, but i guess there was enough of a wall in front of me that it was inevitable.

That's wild. I fouled hooked one recently although he moved several feet with his mouth open and swiped and missed, which is another story. Maybe one other one ever. Crazy.

Time to go to an opaque surface pattern, popper, slider, crease etc.
