Pirch needing some sun

My second stop was on Clifford Pirch. He has been fishing the train trestle located in Missisquoi Bay. From one bank to the other the bridge has close to 1,000 rail pilings on each side where fish could be hiding.

Right now he has a five-fish limit but really no size to them. Pirch said, “If the sun would come out and stay out it would make the fish hold tight to the structure and make them easier to catch.”

Meanwhile a photographic opportunity that I was not expecting at all happened. A random train came across the bridge as Pirch was pitching to the pilings. Immediately he got a bite.
