12 years ago our world changed – please take a moment to think of all of those who selflessly put themselves in harm’s way for our sake.

Well, this random summertime weather definitely affected the fishing yesterday, with late in the day FOG being the primary culprit. You know there is a ton of humidity when even the Main Stem gets all foggy and hard to see in the evening! Aside from that, there were decent hatches of olives, stenos, and Isos early in the day, waning as the sun came out, then coming back as evening set in. Today we are looking at a high of 92(!!!!), with plenty of humidity, and the scattered thunderstorms associated with it. The low pressure should be a boon for bugs, especially as the clouds thicken throughout the day, so be ready for olives and fish actively eating them!
