5/30 Fishin Report

5/30 Report
The last time I saw Bob was on the Salmon River, NY. in FEB. during a blizzard. We had to cancel the trip due to the
weather, but Bob and his 2 sons were eager to wet a line. I took them to the spot, set them up and gave them a few words
of instruction. In the next hour they hooked up 6 Steelhead!

Today we enjoyed sunny skies, lil wind and then 30 knot winds, rain and hail to end the day. As we stepped onto the flat this
morning we were seeing fish. One school had about 75 fish in it and looked like a dark storm cloud moving down the beach.
Most of the morning was spent working with Bob on casting. By late morning he was even surprising himself on the distance
he was achieving. At one point he looked at me with a look of disbelief. All 60 feet of line went out to make a picture
perfect cast. Major points covered were correct rod positions for false casting and shooting, correct size of loop, line hand
timing, timing on when to execute the forward and back cast, power stroke, not breaking the wrist. The only time we were
not hooking up was at dead low. The rest of the time it was slow to non-stop. Several other gentlemen were fishing the
same area and all were hooking up. We had doubles and triples at several different times. Mostly Blues today in the 6-10
pound range. I threw squid in orange, pink with out a touch. As soon as we threw anything with white with a slender profile
it produced on Blues and Bass. Sand lances were being picked up by the terns in good numbers. Bluefish working bait also.

Bob was pretty good for an ol' fart! (he-he)
