Equinox Hardly Any Fishing Report

The equinox is late this year, on September 23rd. That coincidentally is son Alex’s birthday. What a great day to have a birthday on! Anyway, I think everyone who reads this should celebrate the equinox by going fishing. Or, you might celebrate it like the Aztecs did, although it might be frowned upon by neighbors and law enforcement-

A famous ancient equinox celebration was the Mayan sacrificial ritual by the main pyramid at Chichen Itza, Mexico. The pyramid, known as El Castillo, has 4 staircases running from the top to the bottom of the pyramid’s faces, notorious for the bloody human sacrifices that used to take place here. The staircases are built at a carefully calculated angle which makes it look like an enormous snake of sunlight slithers down the stairs on the day of the equinox.

Fishing or human sacrifice? Think I’ll take the former…

We did not fish much this week because the forecast all week looked like this-


…East winds 20 to 25 knots diminishing to 15 to 20 knots. Seas 8 to 10 feet with a dominant period 13 seconds. Rough on the intracoastal waters. Chance of showers.

You wouldn’t have gone fishing either.

Alex, newly home from Alaska, and I went retention pond fishing Thursday in Oviedo. He got a couple bass on a fly rod popper. I got a catfish on a plastic worm. The entire trip took about two hours.

I have a new book coming out at the end of October! Please tell your friends! It’s a guide book to fishing Florida by paddle craft. Click this link for more information!

That’s this week’s Equinox Hardly Any Fishing Report. Thanks for reading!

Life is great and I love my work!

Life is short- Go Fishing!
