Hogy Mike, John Burns and I ran out today looking for some post storm albies. I have to say the storm didn’t do much to us on land but it sure messed up the water.

We covered well over 100 miles doing recon and looking for life. We did find some, but it was VERY limited and only in a few small pockets.

Areas that were in the mid to high 70° range pre storm are now mid to upper 60’s. We are hoping that the water just turned over and will go back to near pre strom temps. Also much of the water we covered was still dirty, weeded and generally not what the albies and bones want.

I would hope that within a week or so we will see things settle down after the snow globe shake up.

Anchovies were the main forage. 5/8oz Epoxy Jigs in the Shrimp coloration were killer.
