THE FEBRUARY 1998 ANGLER(S) OF THE MONTH

Lou Dolen

Phyliss Dolen

Leawood, Kansas

As tough a month as January was, February was even tougher. El Nino really messed with us big-time.

Regular readers may know that Lou and Phyliss are some of my very favorite folks. They're more fun than a tree full of monkeys.

We had two days scheduled. February 26th we fished the Sound, and couldn't hardly buy a bite. The conditions were terrible, there was no bait, and the fish had lockjaw. I decided we should fish Sarasota Bay the next day.

Although it blew like hell out of the south at 25 knots all day long, and a storm forced us off the water for a while, Lou and Phyliss never complained. We fished artificials, spoons mostly, and by the end of the trip we'd boated 7 redfish to 28 inches, 2 snook to 24 inches, 2 ponpano, a ladyfish, and 2 jacks. It was a tough day of tough fishing, but we had a blast!
