I think it’s something anyone would love, and that inshore anglers have in common.
Once upon a time I used to guide clients into the marsh.
Like any line of work, you gotta get it while the gettin’ is good.
So if it’s time to go fishing, and there are people who wanna go, you gotta launch the boat regardless if it’s your day off.
I’ll tell you there were many mornings I was tired, my coffee wasn’t doing it and my mood was a grumpy one.
It almost seemed like nothing could make me feel better.
After all, people don’t really pay to catch fish so much as they pay to have an experience.
Part of that experience is an un-grumpy fishing guide (and you don’t have to look far to find customers tired of grumpy fishing guides!)
I didn’t have to do anything.
This is because I love watching the sun rise over the marsh.
It’s such a spiritually fulfilling way to start the day, as corny as that sounds.
But, if you’ve done it, then you know exactly what I am talking about.
A beautiful morning always sets the tone for the rest of the fishing trip, and it’s always a positive one.
How do you feel about those sunrises over the water?
Do mornings do it for you, too?
Or is this all a bunch of “feel good” navel gazing?
