Took the 8 am shuttle to North Monomoy and headed to the usual spots....No wind today...overcast...nice.. outgoing and headed southwest to do some sight fishing . Not crowded...only two others nearby.... Anyway... could not get a hit on the sandeel. With calm water and the early incoming saw thousands of Tiny shrimp, maybe half inch long and very skinny... changed flies to the Puglisi green epoxy shrimp...all I had with me and substantially bigger than what I was seeing... but would stand out...third cast hooked a 27 or 28 incher...then in the next half hour two more ,mid twenties and fiesty.... needed to get back for the 12:45. Good day considering.
