It was definitely chilly out there yesterday. Temps hovered right below 60, and didn’t jump above there except for the few times when the sun peeked through the clouds. All in all, a truly “October” type of day. There were bugs hatching throughout the day however, with teh only real ‘shutdown’ occurring just after 6PM. Isos were the name of the game, as well as stenos and pseudos making their presence known. The fish were a little tougher for some reason (read: being picky bastards), but there were definitely some nice fish caught. Today we’re looking at a mix of sun and clouds, but the air temps aren’t supposed to make it above the mid-50s, so we’re goig to see another day of activity happening during the middle of the afternoon, with it turning off right before dark. Happy Columbus Day!
