I paddled out if VA Creek across the icw this evening. The tide and wind were near perfect for a long paddle. The little Creek I have to use to get out felt hotter than my own skin. I fished the marshes and found a small lagoon that had some reds in it. I could see them rooting in the grass and chasing bait a little.
I only had action on one singe cast. I hooked a fish after 3 cranks and it dropped off after m be 3 seconds. I kept it moving and got 3 blow ups and finally an 18" throw back.
That's a lot of effort for one fish but it was super nice out. Cloud Water Sky Atmosphere Water resources
Fish Fishing net Fishing Tail Ray-finned fish

I think the incoming tide made the water at least 5 degrees cooler than VA Creek was as I paddled out and maybe that made the difference?
Two days ago as I paddled out there was a conga line of dead fish. It was in the tiny back part of the creek. It stretched out for several hundred yards all in a line as the tide swept them in. They were all 2-3" small fish like pinfish and baby croacker and likely baby drum too. I've never seen this before but I'll guess these small fish are more stressed by the hot water. It was far too many fish to be from a fish trap and there was no cast net damage that I could see. If these were the product of thrown away bait I doubt they would have been so strung out???

hey challenger, is that a photo from "the big lebowski" in your profile? Not the best of the Cohen Brothers movies but funny nonetheless. happy fishing!

Yessir - Good pick up. Much respect for doing so too:)
I loved that movie when it came out but have since become much more sensitive to the use of the F word in flicks and this movie has to have a record number. Movies don't need this word spoken every sentence IMO and it sure takes away the pleasure for me personally.
Which Cohen movie is your favorite? I think I would go with, "Best in Show"

Harlan Pepper:
I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, "Harlan Pepper, if you don't stop naming nuts," and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that's what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she'd just start yelling. I'd say, "Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut.". Pine nut, which is a nut, but it's also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut.

I laugh every time I think of this scene. "Natural, all natural white pistachio nut" HA!

All the best,
The Dude

Cohens are better than my topic anyway.

"Do not seek the treasure"
"Not the livestock George "
I have not seen all of their movies. Maybe I need to.
Raising Arizona is an all time classic imo.

I bet we could fill a forum up talking about the Cohen Bros, Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, and so on. They make a bunch of movies the I can not surf past when I see them playing.

For some reason someone is sitting on mikeski.com. So I followed The Dude and named it themikeski.com.

The Holy Grail is one of those few movies that you can watch a dozen times and always see something you missed before. The ending credits are a perfect example....hilarious. And Tarantino's Kill Bill movies are another piece of artistic excellence, right down to the musical soundtrack.

Tarantino hit's it spot on with his music selections. Just like Stephen King in his books when I read them years ago.

Probably should move this to a new thread.....

Some people that helped mold my life by teaching me how to be a system administrator, with a slight leaning towards classical music and how not to be an ultramaroon. Leon Schlesinger and Mel Blanc.

And to go forward on that line. There is one of my most favorite... Mel Brooks. The man who created a movie that is so politically incorrect it could not be remade today.

I'm sure you are not talking about ''Spaceballs''....must be ''Blazing Saddles" or History of the World....'' This is the saltwater forum and we have gotten way off track but if you folks ever find yourselves near Farmville Va. hit me up...My family has a farm pond there that will spoil you...creek fed no pressure. Had a massive fish kill a few years ago that was gut wrenching but things are turning around. Awesome top water action on a good day. Nothing fancy but a blast.

The Holy Grail!!!! What a movie. You can definitely watch a dozen times or more a pick up new things each time, and somehow they each seem more funny than what you thought was funny before. All time favorite for me. Some call me........Tim?
