Hello everyone,

Writing to clear up some of the confusion Im hearing about us out there.

I am still running from the Wildlife Refuge for as long as mother nature allows. Shuttles as usual at 0800, the pick up times my be tweeked each day to allow me to get out around hightide for my Wildlife Refuge Cruises. Hearing what Im hearing out in the area of the N. Monomoy flats and what use to be the crib, not sure how long the action will last again this season. Lots more sand meaning less water depth out there. So my suggestion is get it while its cold. Most likely same as last year, the water temps are going to climb quickly out there with the only flood coming from the sound. Please, no need for people to apologize to me for not going out at all last summer. I completely understand, you are here for Fishing, and you have to go where the fish are. The Admiral and I do miss the early morning joking, but we get it. So we will enjoy our time with you in the spring while it lasts.

Second, we do have a new boat that will be doing seal cruises out of Ryder's cove.
Unfortuneately, due to lack of parking, I have no ability to run a shuttle service to North Beach. This is something we can look at in the shoulder seasons as a special charter, same as we do South Monomoy. We will work out some ideas for this over the summer.

I am also concidering offering 4 and 6 hr sportfishing charters around Monomoy, to allow guys to flyfish the rips out there from the boat. I am also considering doing some offshore stuff in the fall for the more managable Tuna on heavy fly gear, so those are a couple of things to keep in mind and I will keep you posted on those also, or let me know if you have any interest in that.

If your not sure about what's happening by all means give me a call before you head down, not only to see if we are running, but I will give you an HONEST fishing report. Though some didn't appreciate my honesty last year. (not trying to get Striblue all fired up again:chuckle: )

Look forward to seeing everyone,

Capt Keith

Let me be the first to jump in and say I appreciated your honesty last year. It took a long time to build up tolerance to your abuse and was hard to give up...

See ya' soon

Hey Keith, fishing aside...

You coming to the Squire on Saturday 13th June for a beer (or two)?

Keith, I headed out with the clave guys to the Brewster flats this morning, but my plan is to see you this weekend for some south beach trips... also, I support your suggested initiatives in the future.

Keith, thanks for the update. Rumor has it that the west flats of N. Monomoy are holding fish. If you got sun, go for it, after checking in with Keith for the ride over.
