Last Thursday I caught a couple of keepersat dead low tide at the mouth of Quonny, not the 40 inch fish you are catching on the cape, but fun. Today I took my small inflatable boat.The wind was blowing pretty hard offshore, so I fished some of the incoming in Quonny breachway, took 4 small bass in the breachway, looked out in the ocean, and saw some fish breaking. I couldn't resist trying the inflatable in the surf, so I put on my life jacket and went out through the surf. Dropped my 8 lb anchor about 100 yards offshore as rowing was very hard in the wind. I was right in the middle of fish. I didn't take anything large but had a ball, the only fish I didn't catch there was flounder. I caught bass, blues, hickory shad, and scup. The thing that I find hard believing is that I have only used one fly pattern in my last few trips, interested? I can tell you this much it is a fly that came from my very good friend Al Brewster, who taught me fly fishing about 60 years ago. Some day when I get time I am going to figure out how to post a picture of the fly. Inflatable works fine, but I can't get back high and dry without getting wet. Really had a great time all by myself.
