Tuesday was another blowout as far as fishing goes. South winds gusting to well over 20 knots had the bays and surf in bad shape. While it appears that relief is on the way as far as lower velocities, it will take several days for the water to clear.

During all of this, night fishing continues to be the best choice for catching fish and for comfort. Monday night trout were thick under the lights, and I was there not long after dusk to give it a try. Trout of all sizes, most undersized, however, were feeding on shrimp that were drawn to the overhead lights.
