It’s been a couple of days, and still not good fish to speak(write) of. The weather turned; tuesday night was in the 30’s, with a strong wind, which got stronger on wednesday. Too strong to take my boat out. Here’s a picture of the north winds hitting the causeway on the Indian River.
So I scouted some areas and looked for bait. I was worried about the wind blowing down my tent, and when I got back to the campsite in early afternoon, everything was still intact. But while I was there, the wind caught the edge of the tent….I was right there and grabbed it. I thought for a minute I would go flying into the lagoon! One of the fiberglass poles snapped. I got everything under control.
I returned to Orlando to get some spare tent poles I had, and see the family. Had a great night sleeping, with the wife, and no wind, and central heating! Returned Thursday morning for an uneventful fishing day.
But the weather has turned and as I write this, its a balmy 65 degrees with light winds. My tent is restored; the tv/vcr survived its fall (it was inside the tent when it went); and I look forward optimistically to my remaining few days of vacation
