Fishing with Jimfish

Housy on 12/1

Jimfish and I hit the Housy on Friday morning, and had what has lately become the typical striper day. Almost 350 schoolies, but no keepers. Despite the wind and bright sun, we did catch a couple dozen of them on topwater, so that added to the fun. No keepers, so no pictures, […]
