I got out there early this morning sacrificing sleep for fishing. Paddling out of the harbor at pre dawn I rounded the jetty. Only the occasional ripple from lobster boats passing through the distant channel interuptted the Glassy calm of the water. Things were looking good for surface activity. As the sun rose over the barrier beach I saw the birds begin to search for bait, they found it. Most of the activity was out off the end of the beach toward the bug light where party boats threw up big wakes. I did not venture into the rougher water but found some very subtle surface activity on the edge of one of the flats. The fish were just sipping at the top of the water like trout. I didn't catch a thing but it was sure a nice morning out there. Oh to have a real boat.
