Falling Into Winter Like
Looks like summer packed her stuff and left, didn’t even say goodbye! We are going to see some low forties for temperatures tomorrow. Meanwhile Pennsylvania could be seeing snow and I am still mowing my grass!! What a weird end of the season, or the beginning of one, depending on how you look at it. Fall weather is really here now and looks like it is staying. This will be good to get the fall fish moving. Not so sure I am ready for bibs, waders, boots, hats, gloves, and heavy weather gear.
The inland bays temperatures have dropped 14 degrees in a week. We were at 77 degrees at the peak and are now hitting 61 degrees and peaking to 63 degrees and still dropping. This will really get the striped bass stirred up and feeding even heavier. Weekend is looking rough for some fishing, a little chilly and a lot windy, but it is that time of year.
