Here's a photo my friend Kirby took this morning at Ship. I caught this beautiful 30+ pound female chromer around 7:20 AM with a yarn fly.
There were just a few fish moving and rolling up by the wire and I hooked one after an hour of fishing (started at 6AM) which I promptly pulled lose in my excitement, then hooked and landed this one about a half hour later.
So, they're there. It's just hit or miss still. Glad I hit! I'm stokin' up the smoker now...
