Thanks, Doctor! by Dave Spendiff 9/5/14

Got a call at 9 this morning from my doctors office saying that he will not be able to keep our appointment and rescheduled for tomorrow…looked out onto a mirror smooth lagoon and said “what the hey, let’s go fishing.” Headed to my favorite middle grounds area and started throwing soft jerks – lots of small blues and chopped up plastics. Made 5 fluke drifts on the last of the outgoing and as many on the first 1 1/2 hours of the in coming. Had two hits on squid and spearing – 1, 23.5″ @5 1/2 lbs and 1, 20″ not weighed. Water temp was in the mid 70’s and the water was grassy but very clear.
Thanks, Doc., see ya tomorrow!

Fishing Facts

Of the fifty United States, thirty-eight have a striped-bass record. New Jersey has the largest striped-bass record—a 78-pound 8·ounce whopper that was caught in 1982. The state with the smallest striped-bass record is Iowa. That landlocked striper weighed only 9 pounds 4 ounces and was caught in 1983.
There’s something fishy about beer these days. Fish Tail Ale is popular as ever, and New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery is one of the state’s largest specialty breweries. There’s also Washington’s Wild Salmon Organic Pale Ale, Florida’s Land Shark beer, Delaware’s Dogfish Head beer, and two versions of Stingray beer—a lighter version from the Cayman Islands and a dark beer from Canada.
The triangle fly is probably the most unusual of saltwater flies. It’s one of the few, if not only, flies tied to a treble hook. It’s also barely a fly at all, because hardly any material is used. It is complete after tying the two straw pearl twinkle flashes and the tiny tuft of natural squirrel, leaving an entire hook fully exposed. Incredibly this barebacked treble fly is a knockout when it comes to sea trout.
