: We're BACK!!

I know there were some rumors out there about us selling the business, and we did have a serious offer, but that didn't come to be for now.

Anyway, the Admiral and I are back for another season, and I have picked up another small boat for continues shuttles to North Monomoy and South Beach. I am also trying to set up a schedule for shuttles to South Monomoy for 6 or less guys weather permitting. I know its hard to get 12 guys together on short notice, so this may make it a lot easier for us to get those of you who want to go, out there more often. Of course we need to get mother nature on our side, but smaller groups will give us more opportunity to fight back on short notice.

I am also looking at offering fishing charters with the same boat in the spring and fall, and possibly during the summer months on the quieter days. The young man who is interested in running the boat is also a local avid fisherman.

More info to come, once the boat arrives and we get her rigged and ready for late April first of May.

Just wanted to let those of you, who have asked about us, know what we were up to.

For now let's all just keep praying for better Spring weather than last year!!!:hihi: :hihi:

That is good news. I have a small Brit invasion coming over on the 21st May so it is good to know we can still get a lift over to NM and S. Beach.

That Is good news for us and may not be for you...that being said I will call you in a couple days to talk about the Rip trips.... scheduling and numbers as you mentioned.....also can you give a report about the Light House situation. Can we do any overnights this year or not...see you soon.

John -

You've probably heard that the current administration approved a large grant to revitalize the lighthouse. Maybe even a better well pump for filling that white bucket you had to run up and down the stairs with :lildevl:

03-24-2010, 02:53 PM
Was That One bucket or Two? and please no donation of used sleeping bags.:lildevl: ..Yes, I heard that but was not sure when the plan goes into effect. I will lobby that any future use also include fishermen and not just hikers or birders. I would really like to schedule one during the spring clave....

Nice!!! Can't wait to get back out there.

Lighthouse construction bids are underway, so no overnights for this season. I believe if all goes well construction will start sometime this summer. After that, who knows what the future holds for public use. I'm sure all that will be figured out in the CCP.

Juro, I'm happy either way to sell or stay. Sometimes you just have to look at other opportunities that come about by chance.

Keith, glad to see you and the Admiral are ramping up for the spring season. If the small high tide openings down South Beach expand, you'll need two boats! Remember those days?

There is still some water coming over at hightide down by the 2004 washover. How long that lasts????

glad to have you back Keith.:wink:

I hope the fishing gods are kind to all of us this year.

any shark spotting trips planned for mid summer ? - i'd love to get to see a great white, and they were off hardings last year :Eyecrazy:

Keith- looking forward to giving you some business this season. See you at the Spring Clave, if not sooner.
Any thoughts of tuna fishing charters? From John's reports, that's something I would think alot of us might be interested in pursuing. I know I'd be interested in feeling the tug of one of those torpedoes on the end of a line:lildevl:
Take care,

03-25-2010, 09:16 AM
Keith......this is great news! I am already dreaming about NM flats and rip trips....see you in May.


03-25-2010, 11:17 AM
ah....the abuse will continue :chuckle: .....glad your back, it wouldn't be the same without you and Ed.

We will be offering Bass/blues and Tuna with the new boat. Striblue and Jims have both brought this to my attention the last couple of years. The young man I have running the boat has experience in chasing those tiny tuna off Chatham. So we will be looking into doing something with that as the season progresses.

I'll be part of the Brit invasion this year arriving on May 26th. It'll be my first time over and I've read so much about the legend Rip Ryder.
Im pleased that i haven't missed out and will get to experience it

See you all soon, not soon enough but not long either
