we have got fish like you won't believe down on the cape(both ocean and bayside).the largest we have caught so far has been 27 inches. tons of bait, warm weather....gotta love will be suprised to know that the most effective pattern so far has been a 2/0 chart/white clouser

No, we're not surprised. That's what worked the best on the midcape last weekend for many of us who attended the CLave.
Glad to hear the fish are in.

Sean -

I knew that was tongue in cheek [TIC] with the success you've had on the meat and potatoes fly over the years. In fact I remember you telling of times when the big backside bass were looking for the small clousers over big flies and other offerings.

Keep us informed from your post at the "gateway to the ocean beaches" (Nauset). Besides being jealous as hell, I look forward to the reports. Soon the cows will be in the surfline and another great season will be underway on the ocean beaches... CANT WAIT!

Thanks for your help on the Monomoy arrangements, I'll be following up on that right away.
