I drove up yesterday afternoon around 5 to Joppa with kayak. I should have checked the local weather as when I arrived, there were white caps on the river and it did not look very kayak friendly. I did not see another boat on the river. The water did seem warm though.

Pulled in a dozen fish (18-24in) late Sunday afternoon from beach. Switched from a large storm to small (4in/6in) and hit them straight for about 45 minutes.

Lot's of seals, birds, bait, and wind. Good first trip of the season!
