What does my salt water future hold? Better ask the Magic 8 Ball.
I’ve had my share of blown saltwater shots. Some of the experiences are burned in my brain with more clarity than the fish that actually came to hand. The memories still sting:
- Standing in water almost to my chest in Ascension Bay and trying to cast to a 25 lb permit within 60 ft… and failing miserably
- Trying to punch a cast into a 20 mph headwind to reach a 6 lb bonefish tailing at the mouth of a creek in the Bahamas... and falling short
- Falling apart in front of a half a dozen tarpon cruising a flat north of Ambergris Caye in Belize
