I like to bike and I love to fish, and it occurred to me a long time ago that I might be able to access some great fishing spots by bike. What I discovered was a way to get in some excellent fishing without having to do the work to get a boat in and out of the water, with all that’s involved. It opened up a new avenue for getting my fishing fix and a bike ride, too.
While it’s true that the water in the bay is crystal clear, and my experience over the last few weeks has been discouraging. There are signs of recovery, as bait enters the bay and mullet are again starting to make an appearance. Still, I believe this is one of the slowest recoveries I can remember since the early 80s.
