Had good company last night with Scott Stryker of Stryker Custom Flies. You can check out his website HERE. He's one of the best local tiers around and caught my attention years ago with his realistic flies and his huge pike flies, and then everything in between.
He gave me a call yesterday because his mom was getting a procedure done and he wanted to wet a line after she was all settled in. I decided to give the rivers, ocean, and then bay a shot. First river on moving outgoing just one tap for me. Then we piggy=backed cars and headed out front. South wind was jamming with the incoming tide made it just well, shitty. Styrong sweep right to left if you couldn't find cover from a rock pile. We walked a ways found a sweet spot, saw something jumping now and again, looked like shad, but didn't get a tap.
We ended back at river #2 and waited for slack which seemed to never come with the S wind blowing out the tide. Our outing lasted from 8 until just after midnight, Another long night.....
After seeing him off and just knowing there was something going on somewhere I drove to a spot in the bay that was protected y the S wind. Glass. Flat, Perfect for finding them if they were showing.....nothing.
