No fishing for me tonight as I'm on child watching duty while the wife goes out with her friends. With that in mind I planned on a LONGGGGGGGG session last night.

After dinner and playing with the boy I was ready to go to catch the top of the tide with plans of fishing most of the outgoing. Suited up, told the wife I'd see her in the morning and out the door by 7:30. I got down to good looking surf, W/NW wind. I was feeling pretty confident that I'd find some fish. If the jetties weren't producing I was going to fish the open beach down towards the inlet. With the wind and the surf as they were I put a bottle on and heaved out a cast hoping the post full moon weeds didn't show up - they did. Instant clothsline of weeds. Damn. Still undeterred I figured I'd just go right to weed mode for a few jetties, varying my cast distance into the jetties. Worked a couple and the weed was just brutal. Decided to hike west a bit to see if I could find any weedless or at least fishable water. About a mile later , with no such like, I hiked back.

Walked the open beach a bit looking for some fishable water and the weeds went from awful to terribly awful.

Walked in to my place at 9pm and my wife looked up and said "weeds" - or did you catch a trophy? Wish I could have told her the latter.

Took a look this morning and weeds didn't seem as bad but water browned up. Hopefully it clears up a bit by tomorrow night.

Ditch the weeds

Man if you put those hours in another location you would probably hit fish. No Breezy for you??

I hear ya. And I do hear this a lot. The thing is , the reason I get to fish as much as I do is I live right on the beach. It's a blessing and a curse. My wife can deal with me fishing during the fall almost every night- as long as i'm "only" gone 3 hours or so. If I have to get in the car and drive , 3 hours just doesn't cut it.
I do love catching fish but I love fishing more.
They'll show up in my area and when I do- I'll be there with rod in hand- Toungue

I totally know how Tom feels. I live in his area. We have a beach in our backyard,but its a fickle one. Worst fall I've had in our area. Weed has been the worst this year. But I think we'll get a shot before its over. Keep throwin Tom.

I totally understand

Having the water in your yard will keep you there for sure. At least consider a move on the weekend if the weeds suffocate your mission Smile
