A Nice Winter Day
We left the dock a little after six with a small group of Skylarker regulars. All the party boats were railed, and they too sailed early. The ocean was nice and calm, and it was not to cold ( you could fish all day without gloves). The bite started off good then went to the usual pick and scratch so common in winter. Everyone had a few keepers. I had a limit on a florida rig and another angler did well with a jig. In the afternoon while I was complaining about the only thing living in the ocean is blackfish, there are no more good fish that you can eat, we saw some working birds and headed their way. A few drifts and we were into the last striped bass of the season. Fresh grilled bass on the menu for today.
