Cape 08/03-08/11

A fantastic week. My first experience thinking about fishing and fishing only for an entire week. I highly recommend it.

Sights and Sounds
Wind early
The Morris Island Monster Coyote
Stripee
The Jersey Kid
Harry's knot (not)
Jazillions of Juvie Menhaden
Dinner with Robert Gallo, the MD who discovered AIDS
Outer Cape Beaches
Mung...Mung...more Munnnng
CAC
Jimmy the fireman
Bayside Flatzzz
Dogfish
Bikini fun
And Fluke
6 miles out...birds or the lack thereof
Duck hunting boats on the open ocean?
Teamstriper.com: John, Jim, and Ethan
Stetzko's record
The Squire with Morin, Morin, and Morin
The Nauset RIP
College date wins reality TV show and $700k
Snapper blues
Seals
Cow bass
Miscellaneous Musings
A rough open ocean trip in a Hewes Flats craft feels akin to getting in a car wreck...especially the next morning.
Wade with care.
An inflatable pool toy is in my future....and so is something gas powered that can't be popped by one of my pathetic errant casts.
Next time check with the Penguin before booking your trip.
Hydrate.
May the fishing gods strike down with wrath upon Mr. Morin and his friggin' gameboy sounding, fish stealing, cell phone.
Those little handheld GPSs are fun. The included maps worthless.
If jborkowski can catch fish during the "dog days", anybody can.
And last but not least, don't let the negative reports get you down. The fish are out there to be had. Not to mention, there's a lot to be learned fishing under tough conditions. It forces you to think hard about how and why you're doing what you're doing. It forces you to consider locations you might not otherwise. It forces you to become a better fisherman.
Special thanks to Striblue, Juro, and Captain Todd for their invaluable insight and hospitality.

Sleigh Ride pics to follow.

Jeff...great report...It looks like you got everything in that post...did you go out Sunday Morning?.... I did not.... wind seemed strong at 6am so I spent the day on the beach reading. Drove up to the Refuge and spoke with Keith and saw only 3 flyfishermen head out on the 8am.

Juro,

Finally got those pics developed. Pardon the poor quality (note to self: those disposable waterproofs are junk).

Anyway, you get the idea...wahooooooooooo!!!!

Thanks Jeff -

I've been curious when those yaktoy sleigh ride pics were going to appear :rolleyes:

Well there's another good feature about the yaktoy... the ride is better :p
