“Fishin’ comes easy, and Huntin’ ain’t too hard.  What wears me out is workin’ in the yard.”   I don’t know where that came from, but there’s a tune stuck in my head and those words seemed to go well with it.  Anyway, it’s a great time to be fishin’ and huntin’.   If you’re an eager angler like me the next month or two should keep a smile on your face.  We’ve been spared the serious seasonal storms and even those occasional  nor’easters have not been a problem.  Flounder can be found in the river, waterway and near shore ocean.  Redfish are plentiful in the bays and the river.  Redfish on the near shore wrecks are generally in the “too big to keep” range.  ‘Still fun to catch. I got into a good school of black drum this week as well as an acrobatic Ladyfish!   Piers seem to be providing a pleasing variety of fish…  small blues, pompano,  sea mullet,  and especially Spanish mackerel.  A local surfer told me there were so many Spanish near the breakers one day last week that he and the other surfers had to come out of the water and wait for the schools to pass by.  King mackerel have also moved within reach of the pier fishing folks.  ‘Looks like we’re in for a very good Fall fishing season!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping weather remains kind to us, and we see greater numbers of my two favorite dishes this year…   Sea Mullet and Spots!
Yep. Fishin’ comes easy!
  I gotta go!
Wishing you the best,
