Alas I couldn't be freezing on the op rivers this weekend with the rest of the gang I had to stick closer to home so my choices for a fix were lakes or the salt. I've been doing well at a spot mentioned in an earlier post the fish seem to just hang around this place, I've gone there 3 more times and caught 3 or 4 fish each time, yesterday I caught 3 all on poppers which was a kick. So anyway today I decided to give the fish there a break and go exploring. I found a beach with access and tried fishing poppers without success I did see one small fish jump but I wasn't getting any action so I decided to continue down the road exploring, found another beach with access fished a popper nothing, switched to a sinking line still nothing, found a beaver skull and decided to see what was down the road a little further, I found lots and lots of nice looking places but no access so I decided to go back to the first place and give it a try with my sinking line seeings that I hadn't tried that there. When I got back I saw fish jump and saw some swirls that looked like fish feeding subsurface, I cast out a few times and suddenlly I got a grab and it was a good one, big fish strong did not want to come in and then it jumped oh it was big alright a fat 17 maybe 18 incher forsure and then it jumped again and was gone, oh man I was bummed, it would have been my first large cutt. I changed flies hoping it would be a pig an maybe hang around I cast out caught a 10"er skinny but beautiful, cast again a fat 13"er cast again and alittle 8" cutt had taken the fly. I then fished for another hour without a touch so decided to leave, but with another good beach and 4 fish caught 3 to hand, and no the air temps made no difference to the fish I had salty slush covering my rod until the sun got on the water. tony the I can't believe I waited so long to try this guy.
