: Monomoy Day (Clave II): June 30th
06-14-2000, 08:41 AM
I am going to be heading to North Monomoy on June 30th which is a Friday. My intent is to not do anything out of the ordinary with shuttles other than take Rip Ryder or Outermost Harbor to NM at the 8am shuttle. The expected high tide for that day is around 11:20am which should offer some good sight fishing chances. It will also offer a moving tide in the afternoon while the sun is still high in the sky where we can wait for fish clearing out of the channels.
If anyone is interested, please let me know. This trip will be a little less organized but will offer us all a chance to fish together again ! More info to come...........
Barring any unforseen circumstances, count me in. I will be able to fish until early afternoon only; I'll be meeting with Capt. Bruce Peters that evening. Maybe Bruce will be interested in walking the flats with us?
BobP - how 'bout a make up?
Brian Z - if you can get that day off, we'd love to spend some quality time on the flats with you.
(Groan) Barring any unforeseen business demands, I will be there, with a big smile.

Again, barring the unforseen, count me in. Actually, it allows me to start my vacation a day early.
I am leaning toward a 6am start... anyone else?

Sounds good. I was planning on taking some time off in Late June or Early July, so I could be around when my house gets re-roofed. If the scheduling works out I'd like to go. I hate to be so non-commital, but getting contractors to work on your house in this booming market is very difficult, so I don't even have a firm date yet. But I hope it works out.

Ok,Ok...........I can be convinced for a 6am start.......I was hoping that I would not have to leave the house untill 5:30 but the waving of tailing stripers and the wakes they make is way to much to ignore............I assume we have the same deal with Keith with a 120 dollar charge ?? Also, what if we want to stay until 4pm ???
06-14-2000, 08:13 PM
Are there any Dunkin Donuts open at 5:00am between Dennis and Chatham?
The one on 134 is open at 5am... maybe 24 hours. Others on the way along 28 are a little doubtful for 5am.
There's something about two hours of fishing before the crowds that makes the day that much longer.
Rip Ryder's the only shuttle that does the 6am; and they need $120 worth of riders to do it. That can be one or 13, same price. Since you are the organizer you will ride free as long as they get their $120.
The way I do it is this: If we get 12 or more, it's ten bucks each and the organizer rides free. If not, the organizer helps reduce each fishermans' share of the $120 since quorum was not reached.
So if there are 6 people at 6, everyone pays $20 to ride. If there are 10 people, everyone pays $12. If there are 12, the rate is standard $10 and the organizer rides free.
Hope that's clear,
For future reference, I'm always willing to catch an early shuttle. Kind of like a default.

That makes perfect sense.......I will coordinate with Keith for the early shuttle........what about the return time ?? I am up for a 4pm return if anyone else is ?? Everyone's thoughts ???
06-15-2000, 09:11 AM
I just got off the phone with Keith Lincoln and we are all set for a 6am shuttle on June 30th. We just need to agree on the return time. Right now, we have the following committed:
Hopefully Greg will be able to make it, also.
Actually we don't need to agree on a return time... we just need to tell Keith when we want to be picked up as either individuals or sub-groups for his clipboard schedule...
in other words if Roop, Chuck and I return at 11am we'll tell Keith "Roop party of three" at 11:00; whereas each cluster is free to return at whatever time (before 4pm) they register for.
Agreement on return time is only a factor for South Monomoy Island (the point) since they make exclusively chartered runs to that island.
The agreement on 6am is critical though.
Any room for a new guy on that June 30 6am shuttle to Monomoy? If you need to fill out the boat, I'll commit.

Would love to have you ! I will be getting us more info as we get closer but basically, we will be meeting at the Refuge around 5:30-5:45am on that Friday and then zipping over to N. Monomoy. The boat will leave sharp at 6am and if anyone is unfortunate enough to miss the boat, they will most likely have to pursue the 8am standard connection. More stuff to come........
i'm so outta here
06-15-2000, 06:56 PM
Just got the go ahead from work today. I'm in if there's room!! (If not, I'll see you guys at 8.)
06-15-2000, 08:09 PM
You are in ! Look forward to seeing you........
06-15-2000, 10:48 PM
I would love to go. I realize I missed out on a good thing while sitting in camp the other night. I unfortunately have a charter that day at 11:00. i will be in the area though !
If you wish to move our date up one day we can do that. It would then free you for the 30th. tides are similar for the 29th and I have it open. I would say probably the same time or a half hour earlier. (4-4:30 pm)
The Monomoy shuttle runs 8-4 (6-4 special case). Therefore if you've got a charter booked at 11am on the 30th, it conflicts with the "flashback" clave on Monomoy either way.
I was planning on getting back to Chatham around 1pm or so, taking a break and getting to the Fish Pier by 3:30 to meet you. It's a hard day of fishin' but hey life's short.
If it's easier to meet another day besides Friday evening for the Monomoy rips / calimari caper let me know. If I am not mistaken, moving the evening apointment won't open things up for joining the gang on Monomoy... help me out if I am wrong?
06-16-2000, 09:20 AM
If you still have room count me in on the 6AM shuttle. I will actually show up this time too.
06-16-2000, 10:12 AM
Glad you can make it ! You are in........more info to come....
Thanks. Looking forward to it. With the tide starting to come in so early on Monomoy that morning, the 6am shuttle just might put us onto some fish right away. We can only hope.
I'll be staying at that same house we rented in Harwich around this time last year. Maybe I'll bump into you at that Dunkin Donuts some morning before sun-up.
I'd like to give Monomoy another shot if there's room on the boat.
06-16-2000, 08:22 PM
i am suggesting you switch days for your benefit. I realize that I won't be able to make it.
OK, I finally get it. dOh! Yeah, you're right it would be a crazy day and if you have it open that might be better. Let me see if I can swing Thursday the 29th and I'll let you know. Thanks for being so accomodating, and I am totally pumped to get out on the big rips again!
06-17-2000, 05:04 AM
You are in ! I think you will find N. Monomoy slightly different than South Beach. In the past, there has been more "holes" and "channels" to target for the fish. There might even be a few less of those big ole' bald fat guys swimming around, too !! Look forward to seeing you.......
06-19-2000, 10:27 AM
Here is the roster so far for 6/30 at 6am:
Please let me know if I missed anyone.........
06-19-2000, 02:49 PM
Count me in for the 6:00am. I most likely will be coming with Jim W.
06-19-2000, 03:37 PM
You are in......I will put your name on the list and update the board when I return from the Vineyard Saturday nite.....
