Hit Falmouth this am in the hopes that the westward tuniod migration would be showing around S.Cape - Poppy Cotuit. Hit Wacky for the dawn schoolie show and donated my third rod in 4 weeks to the pile of broken graphite in my basement. Second fish on it too.... can't figure it. Anyway, micro albies all along the stretch from the golf course to the stone wall about 100 - 150yds offshore. Micro = 2 - 3# kinda cute little guys but very fussy. At least I got to see an albie this year, still haven't caught one! :-(
Things got spotty with fewer chances about 8:30 - 9:00 so I hit West Chop, Robinsons and the West side of Naushon on my way back to Falmouth. Lot's of folks fishing in each spot but neer' a bent rod was to be seen.
Report fron the launch ramp was that Cape Poge had lot's of hardtails the past two days..
For those wading, I'd say that the rip at the far East end of S.Cape beach might provide a decent shot at a shore tuniod over the next two mornings. Be prepared to wade deep though.

Nice to see you got out Bob - maybe you should try the sledgehammer approach next time!!

I had 2 twinkies yesterday morning for my trouble. Still worth the beautiful light of the moon, sight casting to schoolies in th dark.

Sorry Terry, I couldn't make it all th way down to the north shore of CHATHAM yesterday AM. I would have if I had the time and I'm sure I would have had much more success!!

No warrantees I'm afraid. I had been using a line of rods called the Heritage from Phil Castleman in Springfield. I really liked the ultra-fast action ( seemed to compensate for my clumsy casting style ) but the mortality rate is too high. To Phil's credit he's already replaced one at N/C and another for a nominal fee, but even that's getting expensive for my budget. I tried the 909 StCroix Ultra Legend yesterday at Bears Den and I was tossing my clear int line over the fence at the end of the parking lot. Nice rod! Not mine yet though.

Mr. Pink,

I have the same St. Croix and love it.

As a matter of fact, last Sunday, in the wind, I was constantly debating making the hike back to the car to get it. I believe it would have been more appropriate for the cast I had to make in the high wind conditions than the T&T I was using.
