Blood in the Water

Watched huge Blue fish slam pogies and create a blood bath on the Flats. Also, saw a huge striper join the feast. So , break out your bunker patterns. The game is getting interesting. FishHawk.

FishHawk is right. The slammer blues started arriving two days ago on South Beach along with numerous schools of pogies. There are some nice bass mixed in the mix. Water temperature is currently 57, but will get warmer with the woutherly wind direction forecasted next week.

Is this a new, American, wind direction we need to know about Jim?

Heh,Steve,

You stiring the pot again. My party will be taking the brunt of revenge at least a week before your invading crew arrive.

You trying to kill off the last vestages of the so called special relationship. Best way to do this is catch a world record Striper on the fly rod rather than offer paltry verbal insults.

See you and your men in Squires. Mines a cold one.

Yeah, not long now Mike, 17 days that's all. . . I reckon our dates are near-on perfect, what with the big tides as well.

I'm sure Jim knows i'm only kidding!

They'll all be caught before you get there Steve.

I'll take some photos of the action in case you miss out

Jamie, correctomundi. See you guys soon. Life is good on the Cape, and the fishing is not half bad. I've got to go see my dad Next week in Tampa, but will be back on the weekend.
