: 5/29 AM in the Haba

Started breaking in the new motor under sunny skies early this morning- it was pretty nice to need the sunglasses again. Found fish under birds off of Spectacle, then when that died, found another big school (deep) south of Rainford.

Ran into Capt. Tom Koerber in the channel off the airport, with tons of birds up, but not many fish willing to take a fly- at least, not one connected to my line.

For the most part, the fish all over seemed to be holding at at least 10-12 feet, with minimal surface action. Loads of birds circling high.

Nice way to start the work week, anyway...

Nice way indeed. I am jealous. Between travel and an irrepresible desire to fish the cape before the summer yahoo season really gets underway, I have yet to fish in my own backyard. Hopefully it will be a good year...so good that we will be planning a Harbor Clave!
