Naples report Sept. 28th. 2017

Naples report Sept. 28th. 2017

I was planning to fish the northern beach today but I had to give the southern section another try at high tide. When I came on the beach and found the Gulf looking like a milky soup I was not a happy bunny. I had expected clear or at least clearer water, besides that a nasty swell was kicking up waves on the beach. At one of the pilings I made some exploratory casts and hooked a few small ladyfish,…

Naples report Sept. 27th. 2017

Due to circumstances I made it only past midday to the beach and the first downside was that the access point I usually took was closed due to storm damage. It was evident that the hurricane had made short work of many of the trees in the Port Royal neighborhood. The alternative access to the beach was open and my first thought was that I should have looked at the tide table first as the whole Gulf had a brown…

Naples report Sept. 26th. 2017

Despite a major hurricane and a cancelled flight by Delta I made it to Naples.  I postponed cancellation of my trip as my hotel reported they where back in business after the hurricane. This morning I got up before sunrise and was on the beach when it was still dark, only lighting from the thunderclouds further south lit up the sky now and then. It seemed the fronts offshore showed inland movement so I headed north and noticed quite a few fish in…

Another day of stockie bashing and surprisingly no competition from my fellow syndicate members … well I did not miss them … the whole place for me alone. Crazy action with the rainbow trout plus a couple of browns mixed in. The pike got me again … at least that is my conclusion to the loss of yet another streamer without feeling any resistance. The silver fish where present but I could not manage more than a few small dace,…

At the annual gathering of our syndicate members at the mill pool we had some spare time and fished the nearby pools for anything with fins … fishing was poor but some of the small stuff did show interest in the nymphs we fished. When we where lot loose in the mill pool if was stockie bashing allthough there where also some silver fish to be had. Even the illistrious pike under the weir made its presence known by cutting…

It was bright start of the day last Sunday when I was out and about fishing. The air was so calm and crisp that this only cloud in the distance looked suspicious. It turned out the be the plume from the cooling tower of the so called AKW Emsland, a nuclear powerplant located 24 miles northeast of my hometown as the crow flies. With the sudden deluge at the upper stretch of my river and the consequently muddy water I…

There was a deluge yesterday in the area of my syndicate, trash bins where floating through the streets … A stationary front dumped such an amount of water in a short time that the drainage system could not cope, cellars got flooded … emergency services and the fire brigade worked overtime. So fishing the stream was maybe not the smartest thing to do today but as the syndicate had the annual ladies fishing event I made the pilgrimage anyway. As…
