: Rip Trip - Labor Day Weekend?

08-18-2008, 07:29 AM
Anyone interested in trying to pull off a South Monomoy trip during labor day weekend? Just indicate any interest here and we can go from here. I would think the Saturday or Sunday of that weekend assuming Monday would be a travel day but lets see what we have.

I only have availability on that Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Sunday is our rain date for the family cook out on Monday.

Well, Larry Pourier called me today (shadfreak) and indicated that he can go along with two other guys...I may be able to get atleast 2 this is just for info....that would make 6 right now... and I maybe able to drum up 4 others if we get no more response and will then make contact with those signed on by PM later this week. I am also working on another plan which may involve less than 5 and will let Keith know.

Ok, we should just cancel . We really don't have enough people. Jim Simms will be down in September and October and I will ask him to do the future scheduling for any fall trips that we can do.

OK John, thanks for trying.

Hey John,

Doesn't sound like the fishing has been too hot down there anyways. Charter boats saying the fishing is slow, with mostly blues and small bass.
I still can't believe they haven't finished the commercial season yet. As of about a week ago, they still had at least half the quota to go.

Hopefully we can get a couple of good days down there for the fall push.

Keith, I will talk with Jim and maybe we can plan atleast one trip in september...

John, the rip can only get better in September, bar mung and a strong SW wind. We'll try to schedule a trip Saturday, Sept. 6th. Last year, about that time we had some albies in the rip, but no hookups. The forum appreciates your perseverance in trying to get the trip(s) in July/Aug. If not the 6th, then we'll keep scheduling for the following weekend. I'd love to see more than one trip this fall.

The Vermont contingent will be making some Fall Cape runs: exact schedule TBD.

If the commerical guys can't get there quota that tells you something.
This has been an unsual season. Plenty of bait but lack of fish, at least from shore. :( FishHawk
