8.13- Fūjin takes a rest

Anglers casting on a bait ball
(click on image to enlarge)

More storms and rain this morning, but by late afternoon the waters of the river Neuse showed nary a ruffle... except the ruffle caused by the menhaden school these anglers sneaked up on to gather some bait.

A number of other sports fishers were cruising about, and two or three shrimpers were visible, including the one in the background (left) drifting between Garbacon shoal and Adam's Creek on the far side of the river.

Surprisingly, the many sailors who normally (and mysteriously) crowd the river when Fūjin slumbers, were completely absent.
