I don't get it, only a few of you are fishin for stipa's. We have been sittin out here in cold, snowy and rainy weather of Oregon thinkun about the stripa's you guys have on the south side and hardly any reports. Fred, you been workin for the man long enough to take a couple days off. Hey maybe you don't know where to fish on the south side. :chuckle: Any way you look at it I wish I was back on the cape fishing with you all. That's if you all get off your butts and go.
Good luck on the fishing year

Fell behind on winter/spring honey do list but next weekend should find me looking for striped ones, at least in the early am. Being dragged down to NYC this weekend which breaks my rules about being off cape after the 1st of May. Still in turmoil at the cape house. Donna's heading down now to meet with the hardwood floor refinisher and tree work will probably commence this weekend. Still trying to resolve the fix up to sell ($) or fix up to live in ($$$) issue. What's this all got to do with fishing? Lining up the ducks so I can fish at will...retirement.
How's the new house coming?
Fair enough Fred, I'll let it all go this time. I'm just envious of all our friends who could be fishing stripas on the first run of the year. Every year at this time I read "The Shining Tides." All about the first bass of the year entering Buzzards Bay and of Rocus the 125 pound stripa and the chicks, the portagee, priests and ww2 war veterans as fishing guides in 1948. Great book if you can find it.
Fishing out here is a no for me with track and field taking up 6 hours a day, The house takes up the rest of the time and it is going well, foundation up.
Steve - I will do my best to live up to your expectations on the water now that I am back from a week of bonefishing debauchery.
Everyone - please understand that means I will live up to NO expectations relating to this website while I am working hard to maintain our nor'eastern angler reputation! That and the dishes and laundry too.
(well I'm serious in a way - some of the member expectations have been a bit unrealistic but we're course correcting now)
