Fished the outgoing last night from around 11:00pm to 2:00am. Cloudy with stiff wind from the NE. Water a little murky, but no problem with eel grass. Tide did not move well in my spots last night because of the wind, and was unusally high (moon tide I suspect).

Tried two spots near each other for one fish (about 34-35"), and I was surpised I got that one. Not a lot of life, other than the ever present horseshoe crabs. I would like to say that I know the reason, but prolonged low pressure systems, and east winds, just absolutely kill this area. It's like a switch. After the 2nd day, it's done until the weather moderates back to the west. I went tonight hoping it would be different, but the east wind always wins.

Anyway, I didn't get a picture of the fish (left camera in buggy) but did take a couple shots of the newest scenic attraction on Burma Road. I don't recall seeing this a couple days ago. Anybody know what happened to this poor guy. Also on my way out earlier, 3 vehicles stuck up to their frames by the entrance to cut 1a. Didn't look like they were aired down. I offered my assistance, but they declined. -Rich
