    So its been a while. Like, last August a while. Found out that a severe foot pain I had been feeling in early September was a bone break, and started to have (and still do have) issues with tendonitis in my elbow and shoulder of my casting arm. These things along with fighting off depression kept me off the water for a very long and unwelcome time lol.

    So, I got out last night. On water about 10:30p, greeted by a nice rising tide. No breeze, no clouds, just the moon keeping watch over everything. Tied on a creme lures shad imitation cause why not, and while my first cast was in the water, started fidgeting with my drag. Start taking up some slack... and a bit more... and decide to set the hook. And thus managed to mike long a spottie in the stomach lol. Whoops. No blood, just a new piercing to brag about. No fight, but *shrug* cant expect much from that.
    Second one was a bit more fun. Had an underspin with an AA baits curlytail on. First cast on that? Gets hit on the drop. And oh man did that feel good. Perfect set right in the middle of the upper lip, drag peeling (had the drag a tad bit too light), felt good to have a decent fish on. 12" or so. Tossed the underspin out there for a bit longer. Couple bites, but nothing committed enough to take a swing at.
    Switched to a dropshot to toss a fluke on to search for them a bit. Missed three bites, switched to a sandworm to try to get them to stay on it for a second. That produced a single bite, and a tiny fish. Tide slacked high right about then, and then to cap it off I snagged up and broke off in very short order. Called it right before midnight. Looking forward to saturday which will be a 3-4hr shot at MB before/at sunrise. Man does it feel good fishing again lol

    I ruined my elbow being in the construction trade and hitting batting practice til it hurt for 20 years or more. It got to where I couldn't fish or even pick up a champagne glass across the table. I got the surgery a year and a half ago and wow its like starting over again. I did years of the physical therapy before they would let me do the surgery. PM me if you want any more details on it, and glad your back with your reports.

    Solid catch !! I've been getting larger models around there regularly, but I'm out around 2-4am after work. Keep it up.
