Finally, it's over. One more month closer to cooler weather.
(five minutes from the dock......in "winter".)
WHY? Doesn't anyone reserve a weekday anymore? Is it the sign of the times? Because as far as I'm concerned "the times" have been "not good" for a long while.
Here's why: (check this weekends winds which includes Fridays too...versus the week days! My notes are "Highlighted")
REST OF TODAY VARIABLE WINDS....this means GOOD! 10 KNOTS OR LESS. SEAS 2 TO 3 FEET IN A NORTHEAST SWELL. INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP. ISOLATED SHOWERS.
WEDNESDAY SOUTHWEST WINDS 10 KNOTS, also really good. SEAS 2 TO 3 FEET. INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.
THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT NORTH WINDS 10 KNOTS, "the switch". SEAS 2 TO 3 FEET. INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.
FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT NORTHEAST WINDS 10 TO 15 KNOTS. SEAS 2 TO 3 FEET. INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP. ISOLATED SHOWERS.
SATURDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT NORTHEAST WINDS 15 KNOTS. SEAS 3 TO 5 FEET. INLAND WATERS A MODERATE CHOP. SCATTERED SHOWERS. Jetty fishing??? NOT???

I have gone all "Low-Pro" ...aka: Low Profile bait casting.
I strive for YOU my customers to be using only the best and what I have tweeked for you.
Low-Pro reels are lighter, have higher speed retieves, and many time cast better.
My reels of choice are:
Either the Shimano
or the near similar
Shimano Citica 200DSV
Fast and strong, and perfect
for all river species.
Soon to be matched up with 8' Fiberglass Rods
I have designed as my "Speck Specials."
Fiberglass for overall durability, and for a parabolic action, when hooked up to large head shaking Speckled Trout on a float-rig using the smallest of hooks. I wanted a rod that also sported EVA foam grips, that are more durable than cork. Go ahead....try and find a one piece glass rod thats 8 feet, with a HD trigger reel seat in a catalog or store. There is no such animal...until now. And it's my "Speck Special."
Designed from the blank up, The blanks are even made by hand, for Float-rig fishing! After testing the proto-type, I will have these availible to you if you'd like one or more.
