This year was quiet and we had done all our family gathering over the weekend and xmas eve so my wife had a fantastic idea to get out and go for a hike. She said I could pick the trail and there was a really good late morning tide swing so off we went. Just so happens there is fish available on this hike so I brought my gear. And, it also just so happens there were mudding and tailing fish sparsely scattered over this 4.5 mile loop trail adjacent to a tidal marsh and I caught two on four good shots.. Weather was windless high sun in the high 60s and 70 when we got back to the truck at 3pm. It was a great Christmas.
