No sightfishing today. Good incoming tide, and fished the deep end of the north. Not much there. Landed two 22-24 inches. Dave Browne, land three about the same. However, one guy on the Rip Ryder back, had about 20 in the rip at south end. One legal. Made the wrong decision again! Terns were over a large school of silversides, but, nothing underneath. Go figure.

See you in Sept.

Great to meet everyone on Friday morning, even though the trip was cancelled. Given the drive from Uxbridge made the most of the day, and seeing as you could see the surf on South Beach from N. Monomoy, opted to try Monomoy instead.

Covered the island twice top to bottom looking for concentrations of fish. Picked up a few fish under working terns early in the day, and then hit the mother lode in a small rip just off shore. Loads of fish, and although there were some surface swirls, I could not entice any with a gurgler.

Looked for a while like the sun might break through, so I wandered down to the southern flats, but there was never enough sun for the water to look like anything other than a mirror, so bagged it after 30minutes or so.

Another few stripers and a handful of blues in the deep water on the east side to end the day.

As Jim says, terns were going ballistic on siversides crossing a number of sandbars, but there did not seem to be any fish under them whatsoever.

Weather was great at home on Saturday, so I figured you all would be knocking them dead. maybe next time.

I am available for a re-sheduled rip trip on either Sat 7/19, Sun 7/20 or Mon 7/21. If the trip is on Sat 7/19 I would have two fishermen-me and my brother in law, Darren Andreoli.
I apologize it you get this message twice, I am having PC problems and my PMs to you are not getting through.
