Still fish along the Elizabeth's today. 90% small, but did manage several in the 30" range and dropped a legit @20# fish boatside.

Curse of October hit me again, 4WD busted (unless it's a sandeel run, I'm not being stuck to one spot in the Fall), baby lizard passed, inlets are too crowded. The wind and weather has been God awful. But peanuts are still around with blues and small stripers.

I dunno about you guys north of me but the fish have been coming on mainly passive baits like clam bellies. They just haven't wanted plugs.

Weird season.

Was a calm but cold morning, with a couple dozen crappie, two perch, one largemouth, a handful of pickeral; one being a major challenge to land on 8lb test. Float & Fly was the ticket again, small hair jig under a float in 44 degree water is the ticket come late fall.

One last trip down the islands this am before pulling the boat ahead of this next gale. Still plenty of small fish around. Found a solitary 28" fish. Didn't see anything large....other than several deer, one with a huge rack. Still a few guys tautog fishing. Hate to quit while fishing is still active but weather and holiday obligations mean it's time to put the boat to bed. .

I'm trying to extend the season. 200 mile round trippers to SOCO, RI Friday and today, Sunday. Friday was a morning of micro bass, while being tantalized and entertained by bird pods, and dive bombing gannets several hundred yards off the beaches. Today, however, was total gale on shore wind blow out conditions.

Next week, I will leave the Thanksgiving dinner table with family in-laws in Holliston. Drive half the night to fish with NJ Shore Brother Don for four day breaks. Fishing was great last year: We even decided to jettison a Thanksgiving dinner invitation, to stay on the beach longer.

Such is what we do as the season ends, and we try to shorten the winter doldrums.

Fished from shore in LIS at sunset after work in spectacular conditions. Cool 50 deg., but comfortable, brisk so' west in face, creek dumping out colliding with waves set up beautiful current and white water. Schoolies stacked in the current smacking ss little necks and sp's.

When I was putting on my waders, a grandfatherly aged guy comes walking off the beach with his 30 something daughter. He comes up to me and says "Your not actually going fishing are you? That's crazy." After he got in the car next to me, daughter explained he was visiting from Georgia. Guess it is all relative.

Fished freshwater in local ponds- forgot how pretty black crappie can be. And how voracious
Had about 40 of them on basically everything I could throw in the water......

Hope they taste good, because they aren't the best fighting fish in the pond, but a friend gave the the skinny on a pond ten minutes from the house where he has been limiting out on rainbow trout. The highlight of the day was a bald eagle joining me off and on, which doesn't surprise me as my friend saw one steel a trout off a line a week back.

Bald eagles love the trout stocking program.

To bad that vehicle isn't in a family barn ready to restore, or the corvet Clammer used to tow his old boat with.
