Three hardy souls (Dan, George & I) met at 7 AM. The wind was pretty stiff and the pocket was not conducive to fly fishing. We went up the road to Stingaree and hit the marshes east of there. Looked promising, but the only taker was a flounder about the size of my hand, caught by Dan. We tried conventional tackle for a bit and I foul hooked a stingray about the size of a garbage can lid. We decided lunch sounded like a plan and headed to Stingaree for poboys. Scott joined us there for lunch as his daughter had a track meet early in the AM.  Afterwards, he & I hit the marsh just west of the marina. Unfortunately, we only had about 15 minutes of fishing before the skies opened up. About 5 minutes later, we began hearing thunder and decided that 9'  8 wts weren't the best things to hold onto in a thunderstorm.

C'est la guerre!

The pocket is the area east of the jetty. A SSE wind may stir things up. The jetty protects the pocket from anything out of the west.

The wind is forecast out of the SSE. We may think about hitting Seivers Cut or somewhere on the other side if the water doesn't look good. We can look at it and decide in the morning.

Let's meet on Rettilon Rd by the beach. I know several of us are concerned about sinking our vehicles in the sand. We will have a wind forcast tomorrow.

Don't forget to bring plenty of fluids, sunscreen and a change of clothes. We will probably try and find a bite to eat afterwards.

Just an FYI: I cannot do it Saturday the 18th as it's Tracy's birthday and I'll get scalped if I even think about going fishing......

Let's meet at the the end of Rettilon Rd. There is beach access there. It is a popular spot, which mean it may be popular with dishonest folks. Be prudent with what you leave in your vehicles.

As I said, if the winds don't co-operate (e.g. out of the East), we can fish the backside of the peninsula, which s/b a bit more protected.

I talked to Marcos today and based on what he has heard, he suggested that we hit the Bolivar pocket near the North jetty. This would allow both kayaks & wading If the wind is not what want, we can slip over to the other side of the peninsula and fish Sievers Cut.  I am going to go with August 25th.

I know that there's a fair bit of interest in Fence lake, but I'd like to do that with a little more notice than a couple of weeks. We might hit that later in the Fall.

What is everyone's thoughts?
