Think I'll take a stroll around the island tomorrow. Anyone else have the same inclination? If so, see ya at the refuge bright and early.

Monomoy gets a gold star (somewhat tarnished by the refusal of big fish) today. I picked the pick of the week weather wise. Fished the crib and had fish to sight cast to most of the day. Action early was like that last Rip Trip except fish were sighted. Fished a floating line with deep eels early. As the sun got up in the sky and fish (bigger) got spooky I tried different stuff like driftin a sparse flatwings, Switched to the clear intermediate as the fish seemed to really be picking up the mint green line. Actually the shadow cast by the line was causing the problem I think. Actually, I think there was a lot of operator error. Anyhow, lots of fiesty mid 20's fish caught sight casting and had plenty of shots at nice fish. Just another day at Striper U.

Fred, thanks for the report. Until September, I guess I'm a voyageur thru the eyes of you, Striblue, Fishhawk, CSJ60, Juro et al. Unless, of course, the devil makes me do it sooner.

Keep the reports coming.
