With the season winding down, many people have packed it in, but others are looking for some "Last Fixes" there has been a noticable lack of reports (Barring RI Clave) lately. Is anybody Fishing? A few N. Shore reports, Al & Jen & a few others are still working B-Bay & a couple second-hand Outer Cape reports is all I've heard.

With everything pulling out of the N. Shore, there should be "something" going on on the S. Shore. Like that British Atlantic Airlines commericial says "Where Is EveryBody".

Come on boys, who's fishing Plymouth, CC-Bay, South Side, Westport, Lower Cape? Or is everyone raking leaves?

Fished Westport last night until about midnight. Nice outgoing tide but no fishies. One guy tossing eels there no fish for him either. Although he did manage to drift one down my way and reel it up my back and down my forehead making a fine slimy twisted mess of my fly line. Did have a good fish break me off there Tuesday night though.

Pretty grim wind forecast, Al.

If I were going out tomorrow I'd head to the Cape south side "homewaters" on the outgoing near river mouths if big girl didn't do it in the dawn calm. Of course if the wind goes NW it's not too bad thru the incoming on the rockpile rip but a straight N of that speed would be nasty on big girl. I wouldn't want to do an outer beach thing in those conditions. If things get rotten I would tuck up inside Bass River or hit the shore access points at the top of the tide from Hardings to Yarmouth; maybe even as far as Falmouth. Bound to be packs of migrating fish on the southside as there always are this time of year. Hit or miss of course.

Let's see... a strong north wind would blow all my leaves into the neighbor's yard...

Tim thanks for the report. Westport was (& is) a good late season bet.

Just like good reports help focus our efforts in the prime season, poor reports help us not waste efforts in this late season. Besides for those who didn't get out, at least they can think "Well, I didn't miss much"

This Post was not meant to be a dig of any kind. With the spectacular weather we had this week, I was just surprised more people weren't fishing.

This is just the kind of week I think about while shoveling snow in Febuary!
