Sunrise Baitfish Run

Hi everybody, welcome. 

Just off the easel!!
"Sunrise Bait Run" oil on canvas 16" x 20" (available)🐠
Back when I was learning how to fish here in Florida, went and bought myself a cast net - and some fiddler crab imitations for my flyrod. (a bit different than in New England) 🍤
I taught myself (along with Youtube) how to throw a cast net. I felt like I was doin' ok, I could get a dozen mullet or so on each throw and more than enough shrimp to feed the reds. So one day I'm throwin' the net and a guy walks up to me and asks, "How long you been throwin' the net? "Couple a months I say," proudly. "Want me to show you how to do it properly?" he asked with a smile. I had to laugh!😂
Well, I'm coach-able if I'm anything. Boy, was he good at it - perfect circle every time, a net full of wigglin' bait too!!🦀🦀🦀
I watch these guys who make their daily bread do this - and well, they are artists, grace, precision and bait with every throw.🎨
