It turned out to be a pretty good day out there yesterday, despite the sun baking the water for the majority of it. Tricos did come out, and those on the bigger pools had good luck with them, and as the clouds rolled in yesterday evening, we had some great Olives coming off, as well as sporadic spinner falls that both fish and fishermen were happy to see. Today, they are calling for an AM thunderstorm, and mostly cloudy and humid – perfect bug weather! A little bit of rain won’t hurt either, as it will definitely keep our water temps down where we like them, revitalizing the East and the Main (which should start to fish again in the very near future). Some pressure changes throughout the day will likely mess with the hatches some, but the heavy moist air should balance it out nicely!
