A Grand Slam Before The Storm

 

Hurricane Season didn't waste any time getting started and Tropical Storm Andrea passed over us on Pine Island this afternoon. The winds and rain that came before it didn't stop us from fishing all week and we even managed some decent catches. One of my long time anglers Theo Chupein from NJ was here for several days and managed to land another Grand Slam this year. His tarpon was on the small side but it was his first on fly so it counts even more. We had a great trout bite this morning despite all the rain and stayed on the water until the serious storm bands started moving through around noon. Andrea made landfall north of Cedar Key late in the afternoon and we actually had a nice sunset here on the island. The weekend is looking sort of decent and this tides are great for the next few days. I don't think this storm will cause us to miss too much out there.
