Wind proved difficult as, although there appeared to be no wind at all at the dock, and not much wind at the mouth of the Housatonic River, nevertheless it was blowing from the SW. That means it had a long "fetch," all the way from New York...and we hit some really rough stuff on the way to Middleground.
Turned out to be a good choice as Jim W.'s bent rod here shows. We had almost constant action although the fish were not large.
The fish were all caught on jig/plastic combinatons, plus Jim had a lot of fun catching on poppers.
The lighthouse is really not about to topple into Long Island Sound. The apparent lean to the structure is caused by the wide-angle lens of the camera.
These small birds were mobbing the breakwater. Did a search through the Audubon book trying to find out what the little rascals were...without much luck.
In sum, we caught enough fish to wear us out, and had another great day on the water.
