Any day now the fish will be here. A lot of guys think that starting out in the mouth of the river is the way to go. But Kay used to say: “Neil always fished the beach out front of his house and always caught the first fish.” Neil, Plum Island native, past employee of surfland, creator of NTA Custom Lures, and a young man who made a big impression on Kay and I think Kay on him. They worked well together and enjoyed each other’s company (except when she had to get him to stop talking and tell him to breath, lol) So this leads me into the next part here
Neil looked out the window at his home on Plum Island and saw a mass of birds on the oceanfront. He grab a rod and his son and headed down. He told us there were commerants and seagulls floating around on the water and they were diving and coming up with something in there mouths. At first he thought sand eels, but then he said the were limp and dark, not like a sand eel. He said they looked like juvenile eels, but couldn’t tell for sure.
Let the season begin!
