Finally the most dismal fishing day in recent history.
It was bad.
It was really bad.
I couldn’t believe it: An hour and a half without a strike. Two days earlier: 30 fish in the same time frame. Three fish caught (all by me which makes it worse). Three catfish. Hit by a storm I told the guy we were hanging it up and I would be bringing him out again.
Rarely this has been the situation.. No charge and we go again. Every time, the “go again” trip has gone well, I did all the work but I made no money today. So it goes as a fishing guide. Other guys won’t do it the way I do. I can’t justify someone paying for what happened today.
It was dismal. It was dreadful. Why? Not sure. Red tide not far away I never sneezed I will sneeze if it is there. No fish in stress. I don’t know why but there was just nothing there to catch.
Always makes it interesting. What do I do with the next trip? Go and hope it is back to normal? Postpone?? Well, that will be decided in the next 24 hours.
Got hit by a storm at 9:30. High wind. We went to an island and sat it out. When it was over we just left. I was home by 10:45. A short day but it was really a drag. Curious how people will do tomorrow.
