Aucilla River 2/12/20

Not every fishing trip is about catching fish; I keep telling myself. Wednesday worked out to be the best day to fish, you know the saying the best time to go is when you can. I don't know about y'all, but I married way above my pay grade. My little wife said, "let's go fishing as our Valentines Treat to each other." Did I marry great or what? Anyway, we made the drive to Mandala and launched the skiff to find that "woodpecker lips" howling wind that Mr. jgreen2167 wrote about. So, we decided to stay in the river and find some trout. We threw top water, jigs and plastics under corks. Fished from above the boat ramp to a little past the island. They just weren't home. Did have one bite and one fish went to the cooler. One 20+" trout produced 2 nice fillets, which was enough for lunch. The water averaged 65 degrees in the river and there was plenty of incoming tide. It was overcast most of the afternoon and we did get a sprinkle as we headed back to the ramp. We made it back to the trailer in one piece and enjoyed being out. Besides, who's going to have a better Valentine Day than me :D
