WIND FROM THE EAST
June 15, 2011 - Or has been the case lately, northeast, fishing is least. What many saltwater anglers have been yearning for is a more consistent wind pattern resulting in a more customary south, southwest direction that usually prevails during the latter spring and on into the torrid summer months. While we would honestly rate the fishing good to date we are confident that an extend period of south wind would add a couple of miles an hour to your fastball.
The spring season of 2011 will be remember for it's unpredictability. While we can often put a few seasonable days back-to-back resulting in a noticeable upswing in positive fishing reports, the guarantee of strong N/NE blows and the possibility of cloudbursts has kept many anglers in their easy boys.
These conditions have also hampered shallow water sight fishermen that rely on bright conditions for visibility… no sun … no fish. Longrodders that are hampered by the lack of visibility have been sentenced to blind casting grain lines in drop-offs, depressions and channels; a practice frowned upon by devotees of this challenging form of fly angling.
Good fishing and safe
