SUMMARY :
A slow pick of real small fish. That sums up today's outing. Why I'm not sure. Barometer? Wind conditions? Moon phase? It's tough to tell. I will say that I'm a bit surprised that now, in the month of September, I'm still looking at some incredibly warm water conditions. However, saying that, it did not seem to effect the fishing eleven days ago here when I caught 14 fish with water that was three degrees warmer.
