I'm thinking of giving a serious effort for hardtails next weekend. It sounds like they're on the vineyard and ACK hopefully they'll be showing up our way!

How long are the hard tails usually around? Into October ever? I too would like to give them a try

Yes they are around into October pretty much every year somewhere between Montauk and Chatham.

Trying to guess where they will show up in numbers is the trick. Montauk has been the best bet over the past 2 seasons.

I hope the albies come marching in on the coat tails of Irene. It would be nice to get some peanut bunker this year too...we have been lacking in that department over the past few seasons.

It would be good to see the albies right after Irene. That's usually when they seriously arrive. I've been hearing about bones on the Vineyard and Nantucket.
