This weekend Tania and I had guest staying with us, one of Tania’s childhood friend, and her mother. With the forecasted weather on Saturday, we decided to cancel the boat and just take then around town and hang out. We woke up this morning and checked the weather and decided it would be a good day to head to the beach and just relax. Anyone who knows me, knows I won’t go to the beach without a rod and reel.
With high tide around 1:30pm, we decided to head to the beach around 11am to fish the last part of the incoming tide. We arrived at Blue Heron Beach about 11:30am. The water was a decent color, but there were lot of weeds. I wasn’t sure We would catch anything; however, we were there to relax so I might as well try. I got the first line wet about 11:45am and the 4oz sputnik sinker was holding well.
By the time I got the second line in the water I had to pull in the first line due to weeds. I cleaned off the weeds and casted back out. At this point I set up a third rod and got it in the water. I decided with the weeds to only put out three rods.
It was a rough day fishing with the weeds and the larger surf, but it was fishable. I put in the work hoping to get the reward. Unfortunately, today we did not get pompano, but we were not skunked. We caught three catfish. One of the catfish we brought in was on the top hook. The hook was straightened out and the line was broken off below the first hook. The catfish also had some fresh blood from something trying to eat it. I am assuming a shark wanted the catfish.
About 2pm the weeds got much worse, and it made it unfishable, so we decided to pack up and head home. It was not a great day fishing, but it was a great time hanging out with Tania and her childhood friends! We made some good memories today. I pray all who made it out this weekend had tight lines!
