Long Point trip report

Abstract: the fishing was pretty good and consistent, but the camping was uncomfortable.sunrise790

Its October and the mullet run has commenced.  They are in the surf, and in the river.  I reserved a campsite for Tue-Fri, and headed out at 5am for the 2 hour drive.   Launching the boat at the campground I noticed an unusual proliferance of mosquitoes.   But thats not a problem on the water.  I pitched camp in the afternoon, got some groceries, and headed back out in the boat for the consistent sunset bite.

We’e got an unusual heat wave this week, temps in the 90’s every day, and the bugs were so bad that it was difficult to hang around the campsite.  Building a smoky fire helped a bit at night, so I still managed some camp cookery.    I didn’t bring my window AC, so I sweated through each night in the tent.  In the midday, I headed to the beach to chill under an umbrella and keep a live finger mullet out in the surf.  The beach bite was pretty good too, and I got a 24″ spanish mackerel and many bluefish.  Slideshow below, or go to photo set  http://www.flickr.com/photos/baribob/sets/72157622431172647
