Took the boat I have for sale out for a spin to keep her limber and I can't be on water without fishing! I went up river (Tar area) to see what I could find and there wasn't much to it. Water was NICE but the flow is pushing upriver and this is reaking havoc in the areas usually dominated by freshwater species. I actually had problems with crabs ( yes I landed 2 big ones!) stealing bait all the way up beyond Seine beach (Grimesland). never had that happen before.... Caught one Bream and one Bowfin. Saw a few gars breaking the water. NO baitfish!! which is odd and I didnt even see turtles sunning on the logs... I guess this must be related to the quick influx of salt water to the Tar areas. I would have gone downriver into known salty habitat but I know the crabpots are terrible and i dont have a depth finder on the old boat so I fished from 2pm until "dark thirty" and called it a nice day out in nature!! Boat ran great, got the anchor hung and had to play with it but all in all a nice ride..
