Doug's Theory of Heat and Rockfish:
As the temperature of the water rises, the striped bass become somewhat dormant, eat less, generally are more lazy and take the bait less. Therefore, the current environmental conditions in Cape Elizabeth are not condusive to productive fishing.
Log Engry for 7/31:
A most beautiful day! We hit the beach for a couple of hours and found a live crab and live hermit crabs. Aubrey SWAM in the ocean and we got it on video! It was very cool. Around 11:00 we packed up and headed down to meet Grandy and Granddad at the boat. We took a family boat ride around Richmond Island, to Higgins Beach and then to Two Lights. Aubrey said, "Faster". Molly was either screaming or asleep. Aubrey got to steer the boat again and was very cute snuggling with me.
Aunt Jean and Uncle Alan arrived safely and are enjoying a beautiful sunset on the deck - Doug and I are sitting at opposite ends of a table on laptops.
