Hurricane Mathew

October 6, 2016

Hurricane Mathew put a damper on our fishing for a bit.  Thank goodness the eye missed us by 50 miles or so and only produced “minor” damage in the Sebastian area.  Downed trees, damaged docks/fences/screens and days without power were widespread.  Still, we feel lucky and shudder at how bad it could have been.  The waters rose about 4 feet above the high tide lines in the rivers.  Here’s a pic of my community dock on the Sebastian River at daybreak after the eye had passed.  Luckily the water receeded and left no apparent damage.  Others weren’t so lucky.  I look forward to getting back to normal and catching some fish.
