Another day that didn’t quite turn out as planned. With good clouds, and fairly steady pressure, there were olives popping throughout the day yesterday, but the fish did not seem to notice for whatever reason. Later on, there were definitely ants on the water (#18 black), and even sporadic risers could be tricked into snacking on them, but the key word there was sporadic – even into the dark there was not much in the way of steady, rising fish. Very strange for sure. We are expecting another warm, humid, cloudy day today, which will hopefully let the olives continue. I am also praying that the fish realize that they are food, because if they do, it will be a rip-roaring day out there today!
