Checked out JRB at noon and it seemed too crowded. I drove to Seagull hoping for an early trout or flounder. I was skunked, along with everyone else on the pier. I saw nothing for 3 hours. I figured I would go up to Kepoteage(sp.?), thinking the warmer water would produce. I grandslammed a ray and a blowtoad. It was a sad site, Ray all tangled up, toad huffing and puffing(came in like a whirlygig
). Headed back to Richmond, and stopped off at Jrb to catch a fat croaker. It was too late to catch a few, so I let him go. Anyway, I will stick to Jrb+the york till things warm up. I have to say the JRB is the NASTIEST pier I have ever been on. There was enough to fill a small trashcan every 8 feet! They must clean the thing with a snowshovel. Ironicly, someone threw a couple pounds of squid in the can. Anyway, I made sure my trash went in the can, and extra bait went in to the water. Altogether it was still well worth it, seeing a sunset on the eastern shore is equal to catching croaker on the Jrb and needing earplugs!
