Happy Holiday Weekend
After a fine Thanksgiving feast, we had a visit from Mike L. and headed into the woods armed with light tackle. There are some trout waters close by but I have not had time to scout them out yet, so we targeted pickerel in the nearby creeks and bogs. We raised about a dozen fish, landing a few nice ones including a few on the fly rod. After fishing, Evelyn treated us to a nice lunch at the Captain's Inn where we watched the boats come in from striped bass fishing with some nice catches. Later, we headed down to Barnegat Light to visit half of the Sunday crew returning from blackfishing with Big John's annual charter on the Mary M. It was good to see our friends and I was told Mike M. won the pool with a nine pounder. If the weather holds out, we will have some holiday trips on the Skylarker.
