10.29.19 Nice and sloppy but no one home....

     So, heres my week. Monday, psych in the office. Tuesday, Archer Boys Firewood Service. Wednesday, two boat trips. Thursday, who knows. Getting the practice up and running, and getting people in the door, is taking a little longer than I expected. So in order to make rent you gotta do what you gotta do.

     Had to drive to Red Bank to get my partner Sean for a days work with the firewood splitter. Hit the beach just after light and just at the top of the tide. Strong E-NE wind with waves running up the beach. Hit a beach full of rocks and kept myself protected some on the north side. Might have had a hickory shad jump my fly but no really sure.

    Looked down on the beach and found this lone gizzard shad trying to make its way back into the water before the gulls got him. Nice sized bait, bigger than a peanut bunker and smaller than an adult.  Reached out to my man Bob Popovic's to nail down the species.

    The rest of the day was spent splitting wood around a customers yard. Its our second day there and we might have a few more days. Fun working with your adult son, even in the light rain. Can't wait till the morning for the first of two boat trips for the day....hope the weather.....and bass cooperate.
