High pressure system. Give it a couple of days. I've had horrible times finding fish after a blow and low to high pressue. Hopefully.....this will turn around come next Friday in Rhoddy. Hope it's worth the trip for you Paul.

:devil: Hey Jim,
Have you applied for Mass. residency yet!!!
You spent so much time this year on Cape you probably need to buy a non-resident PA deer tag!
Hope you are catching some big ones.

Saturday....met up with Jim, Craig and FishHawk today at a UDL bayside spot....we all did well, nothing spectacular (except one keeper for Jim...he denied it was big enough), but fat, feisy fish.
To the dismay of FishHawk....I used my potent fish attractors consisting off pipe tobacco and white plastic aroma (my thumb brace). :devil: :)

Fishing has been good, catching has been tough. The bayside has been hit 'n miss. No consistency. Moving around and perseverence does have its rewards. With water temps in the lo 60s, the migration hasn't started, I believe. With relatively stable, fallweather forecasted for this week, it should start to happen.

Paxton put on a show using his secret pipe tobacco. weapon :lildevl: He caught many feisty fat migrating fish. His reputation is intact. Perhaps he will now fish another area besides South Beach. :hihi:
As usual ,a great day fishing with Jim and Craig. We had a great meal at the Squires the night before and the scenery was outstanding .:lildevl:

Bill...speaking of scenery......I think we will all agree...the Cape has some of the most beautiful places that exist. It never ceases to amaze me and you are right...as much as I love SB/Monomoy.....yesterday convinced me to explore other areas as well....it is amazing to drive down a road to apparently nowhere...and up pops a scene worthy of a post card! Of course, I would have to be a "resident" like Jim, to take full advantage of it all. :)
Now, add good friends to the scene, along with cooperative fish, good natured ribbing and flies marinated in a dash of Captain Black pipe tobacco....and it was one heck of a day! And remember....for a rare moment, the 4 of us actually out did the spin guys...it was funny when one of them said to me in a good natured manner..."what the hell are you guys doing?" :) That should happen again in about 2010.
