: Schoolies at Red River in Harwich

I know everyone has been waiting to hear! It has been real windy here since Wednesday and it looks like SW 20-30 again for tomorrow, Sunday. Last night the wind died a bit for a couple of hours and I watched a gentlemen take a few schoolies on a plug during the somewhat calmer conditions at Red River in Harwich. I tried the mouth of Stage harbor this afternoon, but all I got was a good workout from the walk from Hardings beach and a good wind burn. Forecast looks like we may stay in the 60s this week, so that should help.

We are planning on starting our services Saturday May 8th. Some of the guys have already put in for their seats, so lets hope the fish cooperate and get this show on the road.

The stripers are on their way and so is Admiral Ed. He is stopping over in Fayetville NC for the night and finishing his migration north sometime Monday. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Hey Keith,
Glad you made it through the winter. Walt and I will be on Cape the weekend of 5/8. Hope the fish get there first.
See you soon, another season begins.....,
It's been hitting the 90s out here, 15 degrees above normal for about a month. Look forward to the cooler weather and the smell of the salt air.

Thanks for the report Capt, looks like the big dawgs are still heading our way, yes that includes the Admiral. ;)

Looking forward to next weekend, let the games begin!
