Default Thankgiving Morn

This is going to be the first year I've not gone pheasant hunting in the turkey day morn.
I'm a gonna go bass fishing instead.
I'll be here in SoCo because things ARE hot, hot, hot right now.
If anyone's interested I'll be at the "5 C's".
Anyone else get out of the house in the morning to let the women do their thing in peace?

I might take you up on that invite. I'll check with the wifey when I get home from work and let you know for sure. What time are you heading out?

Hopefully as close to 4:00 am as I can muster.
Wanting to be on the beach and in location at least 1/2 hr. before first light.
You know where the 5C's are? (I could PM you)
I'll be dragging the flyrod along just in case.

Where is Jimmy Hoffa anyway?

Hey Float,,, go ahead and PM me the info, not too familiar with your area yet. Only variable is how long I can stay. Haven't talked to the wifey yet. I usually have to be home by 6:30 so I'm on hand when the kids wake up,,, I'll see if I can get an extension If that doesn't work out, I may head out earlier to make the trip worth it.

I'll meet you at the East beach parking lot (first one you get to) I'll be in a blue Wrangler. we can couple up from there and you can ride with me (I've the pass sticker).
I usually ride the beach for sign,, then play it from there.

Dang it... got home from work today to find the wife and both kids sick, Thanksgiving dinner plans cancelled, and a "You better not even be thinking of going fishing tomorrow!" croaked out from the bedroom. Guess I'll have to stay home Sorry Floatsum!! Didn't see this one coming.

Well, nobody missed anything exciting.BIG,, Big tides at or just before daybreak. The whole beach was awash right up to the dunes with over 12" water depth. Driving the beach was not an option this A.M.Saw several that walked it a bit, self included, and no hits, no strikes and no birdies. Wash was pretty sandy too. Couldn't see any bait whatsoever (but I know there's some around). Been a killer week all week, but I have been hitting the lower tides with the luck of the Irish.Tomorrow's anouther day.

Try times other than the high tides on the beach at sun up/down for now.
Closer to the lows have been much better lately (always subject to change).
But, that doesn't seem to be the case around rocky / weedy areas.

Grrrrrrr.
Lately when I share "forcast / predictions" I'm 180 deg. off!
Went and caught the afternoon (at the above predicted spot) low and nada!
Made a run to where the "Father's Day Eve" was and things were rocking!
I need a new crystal ball I think.
