PINS 4/18/19

The cool front came through overnight and with it, beautiful temperatures and lower humidity. A perfect day to be on Island. The NW flow was forecasted at 15-20 to increase in the afternoon hours to 20-25. It hit the low 30’s before coming off Island, and gusted at over 38 knots at Bob Hall Pier, but nevertheless it was a great day to be alone on the beach. Many will not and do not fish unless the conditions are perfect, and for a lover of the beach, there’s no more peaceful time to go than during these blows. The traffic during better weather windows tends to shut down the bite for more desirable species such as trout, and it can be solid trucks on some days. The animals come out because it’s deserted, and one learns how to be a better fisherman, testing the limitations of gear and self.
