Anyone going to try Monomoy this weekend? I will be on the 8 am shuttle if anyone wants company. Bring your "small" patterns including shirmp. If we can get alleast 7 guys Keith will take us out at 7am....give us an extra hour ....Also don't forget as of September 1 Keith can drop us off at a new location.

John...
I'd crawl across a hot parking lot covered with rusty tacks and broken glass just to fish with YOU!...and I'd be there for the 0700 shuttle just to make it last longer...but 0800 will do in a pinch!

John,

Crawling across a parking lot is child's play. I would crawl across the continent! Alas, I must content myself with lurking and looking at pictures. Oh, I guess flying back and forth to the Queen Charlotte Islands and guiding guests into 40+ pound chinooks helps a bit as well!

I do spend alot of time recalling the great days I had with you guys this July and can't wait until I get to do it again!

John,

I would be "in" for a 7am departure. Please post whether this is happening by 8pm this evening so that I can set the alarm clock appropriately . Sorry we never got together during my vacation week last month.

OK..Fish hawk says he will be there at 7...including me, Penguin and hopefully Jimmy...and you...that's 5...I will need 2 or 3 more if Jimmy can't make it...I will then need to contact Keith Tonight...so I will post before I leave for the Cape at around 7:30...but we need more...if not just plan on the eight. If anyone is planning on Monomoy Saturday and wants to go out an hour early..please let me know ASAP... and please commit since we will have to pay the difference to Keith if someone does not show up.

Just got the all clear from my wife :smokin:

John, is it a $100 minimum? If so North is usually $15 right? I'll go $20 based on 5 riders if we can pull off the 7am shuttle. 7 riders would be better but I think it's worth another 5 bucks to get a jump on things if we only have 5.

I've only been to North a couple of times last June.
Some questions:
Do we need waders over there this time of year?
How's the outgoing fishing?
What about the green heads? :eyecrazy:

I'm in whatever the answers. I'm really most curious about the waders. On second thought someone besides John have an opinion on the waders:hehe: ?

Jim I use very light weight Red Ball waders, helps prevent sunburn. You could wet wade with nylon zip off pants. Breathable waders also work. Hope this helps. FishHawk
