Beef Cay

Beef Cay

Current temp: 77, Wind NNE12

Lots  of sun today starting about  midday. I  wasn’t going to go  out as the  wind was howling but with all that sun—couldn’t resist.

First flat that usually produces, nothing. Not a  single fish.

Wind was blowing like stink out of the east so I decided to head to beef cay. It is somewhat protected from the east wind and there are always fish there. N0w getting them to eat is another thing. This  place is no secret and gets hit a lot but there are some big bones that hang around there. Within a couple minutes I spotted two big boys. They were really close, like about 30 feet. Normally they would be gone   but with the stiff wind and chop they were less spooky. Made the cast and hooked up. First bone this trip. He was making a hard run and into the backing I forgot I had some  kind of knot from that cuda yesterday. Got to the knot, line stopped, fish kept going and popped that 13 pound leader in an instant. I thought, that’s ok, I hooked up with the big guy and my bad for not clearing that line. Such is fishing.

    Big Al Lefor: A very long time ago, I did a short little movie on you and the Big Hole River, remember? Anyway, I was wandering the internet and said to myself “I wonder if Big Al is still fishing on the Big Hole?” And there you were, not only on the Big Hole River, but the Bahamas as well. Wow! I was telling my daughter Sara that I found you on the internet, and she reminded me that she had won a trip from you and The Great Divide Outfitters when you were at the Fargo Sportsman Show one year. Her next question was obvious: If she never used the trip, is it still good? I haven’t seen nor talked to your sister Bonnie for a long time. Guess the last time I talked to both of you was on that wedding boat on Lake Minnetonka. Does Fulton still work out there? Is that bar with the big stuffed head still there? How about the owner (who was dressed up in buckskins, etc.) If you get a little time, it’d be fun to hear from you. JoAnn and I retiring soon. Blizzarding here in North Dakota today, so Bahamas sounds pretty good.
