Fishing Early to Beat the Heat

Sunrise over the eastern shore
Trevor and I left the dock a little after 5:30 in an effort to beat the heat and catch a few fish unawares after a night's fasting. It was still 80 F out, and humid, but quite tolerable with a slight (and rising) south breeze.

Looking south from "Location X"

The sunrise wasn't spectacular, thanks to a pretty thick bank of clouds early. However, the clouds slowed the heating so it stayed tolerable the whole time.

I've seen on the water

Fishing was not spectacular either; one might even call it bad. We caught only 3 fish, only one of which made this years 20 inch lower size limit. Trevor had a 9:15 AM appointment, so we left around 8 so he had plenty of time to spare.
But it was a pretty morning out, and the boat ran well, so there's that.

It's 93 in the shade here now and rising.
