still no bait

My first day back on the river after a week off, fishing with a couple of junior anglers, I thought that I was going to have to break down and buy some bait, but boy o boy, when we found them.  Wow!  Red hot jig fishing in the morning, fly fishing for them in the afternoon with a different crowd. 

They are about to go top water, 64.18 degrees. 

Meanwhile, check out what is going on in Costa Rica, from the news release yesterday: 

QUEPOS, Costa Rica. (Tuesday, April 30, 2019) — Forty-five teams of champion saltwater anglers released 274 billfish on Monday, day one of the 2019 Costa Offshore World Championship. The waters off of Quepos, Costa Rica were hot and plentiful, a welcome sign on day one of four days of fishing. 

"....Team Oregon Tuna Classic (USA) completed the day in first place with 3,500 points from one blue marlin (500 points) and 15 sailfish (200 points) releases.....The team fished aboard Dragin Fly, a 42-foot Maverick yacht, captained by James Smith."
