Watching VERY closely.
Heading to MV on Tuesday for a weeks vacation......could be interesting :Eyecrazy: :eek: :whoa:

btw: I will be staying in Lobsterville beach area. If anyone is out that way and wants to fish....let me know. Be good to catch up .....and catch! :D

Hopefully the storms push in some exotics from the SE. We found triggers, mahi and blue runners withing sight of BI a couple of weeks ago...maybe the storms will draw them closer to the bait waiting for them in RI.

Hope you got into some fish there. Did you get to dogfish?

Hey Bruce
Just Back. Fished a fair amount from shore and kayak.
first 3 days were pretty calm and I could see some fish working under birds...could not get to them in time....bones, blues??? Fished inside Menemsha pond 2 days...not much going on. Thurs-Sunday were pretty windy with Earl and all. Not much fishing. Monday am fished lobsterville beach up to the bar...nothing. In 6 days of lying on Philben Beach, I did not see any birds working....none!
Beautiful place for a vacation....and the family had a blast. :smokin:
All in all, i got to practice my casting...but not my fish fighting. :confused: :(

Jimbo - I'm not sure what's going on there but the past few years have not been very good for fishing. I was there in June, and Long pt. is usually a slam-dunk for stripers, but you and I had the same experience (bad timing?). did you get to fish the flats at all?
