    First cast at the Horseshoe was 7am Monday 8/9. Pleasant morning with water Temps 64.7, light breeze, clear water, good current... no fish! Had the place mostly to myself with only one sportboat checking it out and one private boater visiting. Water temps gradually rose through the morning reaching 67.7 around 11:30. Put my first catch on the boat about 9:30, a double rig double hookup. My first with a Calico and a barracuda. Saw about three other Cuda followers throughout the day. No bird action, no topwater fish action. Used plastics and drifted all day, put 20 calicos on the boat to 17 inches by 12:15. Had to move around alot! Plastic colors didn't seem to matter as much as putting it in their face. Had 5 doubles with 4 different colors. No luck on the metal jigs I threw and trolled. Thought I might see more barracuda from the reports. Didn't see any bait and only a scattered handful of dolphin, working birds not around either. Nice enough weather for the dogs to go swimming! Tight lines!

    We used to take our basset hound out on our boat. She liked to eat any stray sardines that hit the deck or any small mackerel we caught. We tried to limit her to just a couple a day as we didn't want her getting sick or something. The bigger fish she would at least act interested in but wouldn't try to eat them. One time we caught a couple 50-60 pound makos and when they hit the deck she immediately jumped up on the bow casting platform and stayed there the rest of the trip. She didn't want anything to do with those makos.
