Another quieter week where we got Wednesday in and had another good day, although there was more current running, which with wind holding us in the opposite direction made it a bit harder to hold on the fish. Once we did things improved though. The forecast was bad for the weekend, but as isn't uncommon for the Bay, most of the rain had dumped before getting to us, the swell running dropped quickly, and we got the Sunday in. We ended up going to Mayor, as the current was unfishable in  close.  Mayor was slowish, with the current less, but running from the N.E., almost exactly opposite to the direction it had been coming from in the shallower water. It was right on the new moon too, which often seems to be when the fishing's harder. A generalisation though, nothing's that simple with fishing.
