Essex River--6/15

Fished behind Farnham's yesterday from high tide down for about 2 hours. No hook ups.

I was not suprised with such a big high tide (which tends to scatter the fish more in the Essex), but I also noticed that the water was very brown.

My neighbor who is a native to the area told me that he had been hearing about a Red Tide this summer (high concentration of bacteria in the water).

Does anyone know what effect this might have on the fish? Also, has anyone else heard about Red Tide anywhere elsel in NE this year?

I was corrected. Not bacteria, but harmful Algae blooms.
