    Couldn't get my usual Tuesday time to fish this week and had to settle for Wednesday. Found out Tues evening the Patriot went out with only 4 passengers and got into the bigger barracuda and limits of bass. Sweet. I've been waiting for the barries to show up locally.

    We got out Wednesday with 14 people. Unfortunately, it was a different day with different conditions. We started on the bass grounds. It was wfo on the calico up top. But they were the small guys. I went through about 15 shorts before my first legal. They were eating the anchovies. The sandbass were on the bottom in the structure eating 'dead' sardines pinned on a leadhead. I've never seen that before. People were slamming the sardines on deck to kill them before pinning them on the leadheads. Quite a sight. I'm more partial to calicos so I stuck with fishing the higher water column for them.

    In the afternoon we made the move to where they got the barries the day before. The wind was blowing pretty good at this time. Birds were everywhere. It started out looking good. But something definitely changed because the bigger barries were no where to be found. In their place where all the shorts you wanted. They were fun on the light jigstick for a little while.

    We ended the day back on the bass grounds. Capt and crew were great on the Patriot as usual. It has been a while since I did a 3/4 trip that stayed local and not cross over to the island. It seemed really long with lots of fishing time. All in all not a bad day on the water. Beats being in the office.

    I hate data codes. What size hat do you wear. In the 90's I wrote a program that waited for your windows to update and let me side in. I'm not like that any more.

    I am a software developer for a company in New York for the past 28 years. I have a size 40 hat, but only a size 39 shirt. I don't hack, just write code for a living. Good pay and I don't have to get grease under my finger nails any more! Not glamorous, but I support my family comfortably - and fish on occasion!
