Silverside City

Got out at 10, some fish around, I got a couple small fish. My buddy Josh got the fish of the night. Silversides were everywhere, they were big or small, no medium bait.

simple high tie

Tied this up to offer to busting fish in the wee hours of the morning. Last night I was offering my clouser to fish busting on the surface, and I thought an unweighted fly with hot pink should do the ticket tonight.

over the rainbow

I found my pot of gold!
After a long week of fishing late, and getting my fair share of fish, I finally got my reward for my time put in. The worms didnt come off until later, around 1:45 am. I again used one of my simple clousers, pink and olive to take these two fish.
Here is the fish of the night and the week.

And this one ate 3' in front of me, put up a great fight, as you may be able to tell I was standing on a dock so I really had to control this fish from breaking me off on pilings and other hazards around a marina.

simple clousers

I tied these up today, I have been fishing the same fly all week with great success, they seem to prefer pink.

I have found this simple fly has produced for me when all else fails.

After the fireworks

I hit the water around 12:30, figuring by then the majority of the crowd from the fireworks would have diminished. I strung up and walked over to my spot and within a few moments I came tight to a feisty mid 20 inch striper who made a couple of nice jumps. As I am fighting this fish I hear a "woo hoo!! bring him in!!!" very close to me, I look behind and over my shoulder and there is a drunk making his way toward me, stumbling a bit. I got the fish in and he asked me if I was going to keep it, I told him no, I was going to snap a quick pic and send it on its way. He seemed disappointed and walked away.
I caught a couple more around the same size, and had a couple hits from some bigger fish that I was sight fishing to under the lights of a dock. It was another good night, I am running on 5 late nights in a row, 4 hours of sleep each night, but I will be out there again tonight.

This last week has been the most consistent fishing I have experienced all season. Clousers have been doing the trick.
