On The Pier Today

The pier at the beach was a little dead today when my brother and I went out to catch some fish. The wind was blowing and the water was rough, but it was worth it to be out of the house for a little while.

It was about 75 degrees, and sunny, so you could not ask for more than that. We fished the bottom with Carolina rigs and bloodworm's, and because of the rough water, we had to use 1oz and 3 oz weights.

We pulled a few spot and croakers, but the surprise of the day for me, was the rock fish I pulled in. In this area, you don't expect to see rock fish come back in until around mid October. I have seen them in September before, but they were in the 15 lbs range. When the late season gets going, they run 25 lbs and up.

Great pictures, looks like you are having funny. We love to fish, but fishing hasn't been great lately here. Alot of that has to do with the time of year, but we are still hoping for those wonderful Walleye, that we get here or try to. :)
