Wife's off to NYC to help my daughter decorate her new digs. So it's a bachalor weekend for me. I get to fish to my hearts content (aside from a run to the town hall for beach, dump and off road stickers).

So who's around on the cape and where are the fish?

EVERYWHERE

that's just great now that I am back in Europe :frown: :frown: :frown:

I'll just have to open a bottle of 1982 Mouton Rothschild and toast absent friends and fish. A good havana will probably be burnt as well.:smokin:

I send you all best fishes.

I'll be up Fred.

I plan to hit the road early a.m. for breakfast arrival at Sandi's tommorow (Friday).

I probably won't get out to fish until later since I have to at least give the appearance of working :hihi:

I will be checking out the worm hatch with the upcoming new moon. :smokin:

I'm staying in Chatham through Tuesday evening then headed across to MV for some new adventures, Wednesday through Sunday.

It's been a few years since I actually took a week off to go fishing but there is so much new water to check out, I will probably need another :lildevl:

Catch & release tourney with the Canalflyrodders? Who's gonna be your team navigator? Will you be getting directions remotely from that fancy hotel Basser is staying in?

I may have to try swinging one of your GP's in the river Sunday evening (even though it a day or two before the new moon).

Ya, but the same was said about the clave weekend too.

True, true - But the compare the pictures then/now. If you didn't feel the temps being a factor you have nads of steel.

As an aside we had phenomenal fishing at the clave and it made complete sense where/why.

I might try to sneak down... will give a call if I can.

Yup, smaller team this year. I am sure they will get lost afew times. At least they won't have to sleep 12 in a room:devil:

I have no doubt the team will be under constant remote scrutiny. :tsk_tsk:

They were all over the G.P. during the last hatch. Plus, I came up with a new pattern that they really seemed to like last time. I want to give it a couple more "sea trials" before publication. :smokin:

Weekend plans - If I get a chance to get out on the water - Same as last weekend works for me.

Fred, based on the wind forecast for Saturday, I'll see you on the bayside. It has been hot and cold. Today, lots of sand eel pods. Few fish, but what were there, were nice. Based on the tides, how about breakfast at Grumps, about 8?

I was thinking of coming down for a day, but it appears the wind will be a big factor in whether to drive three hours or not. I think I will sneak out a day or two next week.

JimS, Gumpy's works for me. I may check out the creek early.

JimW, nice fish.

Jim -

What are the stats on that thing? Nice bright spring fish. Can you imagine that fish in October?

I just read an interesting theory why the fishings poor on the southside - super massive shoals of bunker offshore in the sound is keeping the bass from having to scavenge eels, bait and crabs onshore.

true or not i wouldn't know.

its still schoolie central up here btw ;)

It taped out at 41.5", don't know what it weighed ~30? but it was hefty. Yeah it would have been quite a bit fatter in the Fall. I've only been out twice this year but from my observations the bait is scarce for this time of year. What I've read is we're not seeing as much surface action as there should be right now, I think the strong winds have just blown the bait around. Wish I was out there right now as the weather looks better than tomorrow, but off to work I go.
