After reading of Clayton's good luck at Ala Spit last week, I fished the incoming tide there for the last two days with absolutely no luck: no fish caught; no fish seen. Maybe it was the bright sun and the fact that the tide was right only at mid-morning: far from the ideal overcast or other low-light condition. That's fishing for you.
Taking advantage of the unusual amount of fishing time I had available to me, I also fished Fort Casey on the tail end of an outgoing tide Tuesday evening. While I had no luck, at least I saw one fish landed by a gear angler. Maybe the west side of the Island is the place to concentrate over the long weekend. Fingers crossed. Hope to see others of you out there.
