Last trips of 40 something by Mike Laubscher (4/25/2018)
Our last 2 trips were half-day trips starting early morning and both days had a screaming reverse current making fishing very difficult even with nice flat seas. Mornings are getting chilly now and there is dew on the cars parked outside early every morning of late and so the signs are that we are well into autumn now and that winter is coming.

Dorado on the bite today by Mike Laubscher (4/04/2018)
