Tuesday, June 11, 2002: The fishing over the weekend was on the slow side, to say the least! Rob and Martha Schwartz joined me for their first fly fishing excursion in Boston Harbor on a very chilly but beautiful Saturday morning. Both Rob and Martha caught their first fly rod stripers but only a few fish were taken. Still, a slow day of fishing with your significant other beats a good day at the office or mowing the lawn, etc...

Sunday's fishing wasn't much better with morning rain and 15-20 mph SW winds. However, Bill Barnett of St. Louis was a great sport and enjoyed his time on the water as much as I enjoyed his company. Bill took a beautiful 32" 12lb. linesider loaded with sea lice in Quincy Bay on a gray/lavender half & half.

By the way, the guides and their sports who were fortunate enough to fish Monday morning were into a large school of keeper bass out front. This fish were hungrily feeding on big bluebacks.

Until next week, we'll see you out there...
