Hi Everyone,

I know some of you are considering playing hooky tomorrow 5/20!

If your going to do it, tomorrow is the day, even if it is half as good as today. My way of measuring the fishing in the area is how long it takes for me to show up for work. and find the whole area busting. Well, the themometer broke today! From 0730 till about 1100 the channels and beaches were popping. I swear in some spots there were more fish than water. Even the Captain got 24 fish today. I went through a new bag of white slug-os (taboo, I know) in 45 minutes. Off Morris island, I came across a school of 30"-40" fish, and even landed one 39". The most frustrating thing of all--- trying to get the slug-o to sink past the Twinkies to get to the bottom, where the Big-uns were laying. I was only in 8 ft of water, couldn't decide whether to cast or just jump in and grab em. Once I talked myself out of setting the hook, I was able to get past the twinkies and get to the bottom.

The folks over at South Beach were in fish all day. Some never left the drop off spot and had consistant fishing for the day, mostly schoolies. Largest I heard of was 33" taken on the flats.

Saw Penguin out ther on his boat, so maybe he will chime in about the action today, also.

Those of you that I have spoken with, see you in the morning! For those of you, who can't get a note from Mom to skip work-
SORRY! Don't mean to rub it in.

Help is on the way. Stay out of the water until I arrive next week.

I'm glad that you are having a great time. That must
be why you won't return my calls re booking a run down
to South Monomoy.

Greg..I am not sure what this is about but you should e-mail me. Keith does not take solitary people down to South Monomoy unless you want to foot the $300... He also usually orgainizes the trip though the board here.

Keith...when will the fish learn to do this on the WEEKENDS???

Great report, two days too late!!

take care, Nick

I see that there are all twists and turns here.
I called to charter a run for the $300 and was
told I'd be called back. I wasn't. I thought that
Rip Rhyder was a commercial operation; I didn't
realize it wasn't. Does the town/Fed gov't
subsidize it ?

The Rip rider is a commercial enterprise... I would continue trying to reach Keith..I am sure he will be able to accomdate you.

It's too late: I had a short window to sor tthings out
but it's gone now. We'll stick with South Beach and
the like.

Mr Pavlov,

I will make this clear and simple for you.
I run the ferry to South Beach and Monomoy Island. The South Monomoy Trip is a special trip, that is done with the FlyFishing Forum. This is done, due to the sensitivity of South Monomoy. I do not know how to make it any clearer for you. I will say this, I do not and will not put up with your personal bashing, because you did not get your own way. If you want to go to South Monomoy, I suggest you pay attention to the Forum, because the GENTLEMEN who are on here will probably try to make a couple of trips over the summer. I just hope you don't turn on the people, who put their personal time and effort into setting up the trip, if it gets cancelled due to weather or some other uncontrolable problem.

Thanks Keith, I had indicated in a post up above that these trips are handled though the forum.. but Thanks for providing the "why".

NO PROBLEM Stri, got my fingers crossed for the 31st and the 7th.
I wonder what we could sacrifice to the weather gods for those dates. :hehe:

Keith, I am most definitely not engaging in "personal
bashing." I said that I had called - twice, in fact - was
promised a call back, and didn't get one. Then you said
that you only arrange trips through members of this forum.
I am a member of this forum and have contributed to it
both in writing and financially, albeit on a small scale. Not
understanding what the situation was, I thus assumed -
obviously incorrectly - that you are an extension of a gov't
agency. Keith told me that that was incorrect. That's fine,
I have no problems with that.

If you don't mind, I would like to talk to you about this
face-to-face for a few minutes next week.

Thank you,

Greg Pavlov
