Mid Summer

The past 2 weeks have been typical mid summer fishing. The fish are here but are settled in  and are kinda lazy. They quite often will sniff the bait, plug, or fly with a half hearted attempt. A fellow Captain, Pete Morse of Teazer Charters, who has a tall tower to see from told me he has seen a school of 40″+ stripers swim up to his baited live mackerel, give it a sniff and just swim away. Despite the conditions we were able to land fish on all the trips except one. The bluefish showed up last week and has added a nice burst of adrenaline.
