Derrick Calloway caught this stargazer on sand fleas at 3Rs beach the other day
Leaves are falling and trees are turning colors. The driveway is under a blanket of fresh leaves, and it is the perfect time to rake them up, but as usual I will blow that off and go fishing instead. Then after a good three or four rains and the leaves have all packed together, I will cuss them and myself for waiting that long. This happens every year, sound familiar? Yup fall is definitely here when the leaves gather on the ground, blow across the yards, and fill in those hard to reach places on the front porch. The fish are moving around more and they do not have to care for leaves and such. Mostly they only care about when they are leaving with the fall migration, which has yet to even begin so don’t get excited just yet. Read more ›
