We have been fishing in deep water, looking for big fish. There are other places I could fish that would have more action and would be "easier" to fish. The bites don't come fast and at times when the tide isn't just right, there are no bites at all. It's a waiting game but patience pays off. Evelyn had four fish between 4 and 6lbs. and a 9lber. our biggest of the season so far. Bigger ones are out there.
