Hit the outgoing in the Race today. Lots of birds working singly or in pairs. Saw a few suspicious Bass rolls, then started seeing breaking fish bunched up. Motored over to see MONSTER BLUES eating things that are meant for Basking sharks and Mola Mola's. Tiniest krill of sorts; got a few follows but wanted nothing of my clousers, shrimp, bunker, angel hair, squid, crease, etc flies. Very frustruating. They were wallowing in the weed lines created by the rip and just munching on their version of popcorn.

Just wasn't meant to be.

Saw the same thing yesterday a.m. for the whole ferry ride from Groton to Orient Point. At the OP ferry landing plenty of krill in the water, with stripers picking them off.

Never made that trip before; lots of fishy water and rips out that way!
