The Rip Trip is cancelled due to increasing winds tomorrow, but everyone seems willing to do the 7 am trip to South Beach.
Just park on the Causeway and the van will pick everyone up.
Hope to see you in the morning.

To bad about the cancellation but a early trip to south beach should be the next best thing...nice and early.

Sorry I didn't make it fellas.. Perhaps if it had been sunny. Please give us a report when you get back.

Ah Phil. I suspect you blew it. Just getting overcast here in the Taunton area. Been nice with little wind up to now. I bet they had a banner morning on South Beach. Me, I spent the best part of the day cleaning out the in-laws cellar. I figure I ought to make it down the cape in time for the 20-30 MPH wind and rain. Oh well, life s#cks then you die.

Met Fishhawk at Larry's PX and made my usual feeble attempt at getting scrambled eggs. Getting closer though, this week I got over easy. Better than the sunnyside I had last week. Scrambled up to Keiths and Hawk got some early fish at the stairs:D .. Met the group and headed out to South Beach. Early action saw some bluefish. I believe all caught stripes during the day.. Chris broke the bank with a nice keeper. Good sunny day with little wind. Nice view on the oceanside at about 9 o'clock. Going to tie some fire orange flies for next time. That color seems to be very visible on the oceanside, especially with the cool east breeze:devil:

Went shopping with Doc and Hawk after the fishing. Left Doc pondering a new kayak purchase and then Hawk and I finished up with a sub and called it a day:)

Geeez! AO Hell weather report was for mostly cloudy weather all day, wind 10- 20 knots. What time did the clouds and wind come? Did you guys fish until 4 PM? If it wasn't for the 2.5 hour drive and a better weathersenario I would have come. Glad to hear all had a good time though. My weekends are all booked for any future Rip Trips in June. Is there a Monomoy Clave this year?
