RE:5/13 PI A.M. Report

The wind was a light breeze coming from the east. Just enough to make my QD 325 loose 1/2 it's distsance. Then after a move and a line change wind got lighter and I was able to belt out plenty of intermediate line. I found that the QD is tough to handle in the surf. Int. was big improvement. I was the only guy I saw yesterday with a flyrod. Consequently less fish, but the first one I landed was a result of switching to the lucky Bass River clouser I tied (first homemade fly one rememeber?).
If ever there was a time to fall to the dark side, that was it. Anyway, watching Sully hoist in a couple twenty something inch fish sure was a treat. OH ya I took some photos too. Trying to finish spool to get Clave photos going.

Question: This is my first year being a striper hound this early in the season. Is it usually this good? Is this the typical May action or are we seeing a better than average

After a full day of yard work, I hit the Essex dam with wife & dog. Fished for about 1/2 hour there were 3 boats in the current and 3-4 guys fishing the near the ramp & about 10 on the other side. Nobody seemed to be doing anything so I bailed out. Oh, well at least I got the line wet. After Sully's report maybe I'll take a ride up to PI in the AM.

Sully -

What was the wind doing out there? It was a stiff east wind on Cape so I gotta imagine spray in the face and the 325 grain. Anything on the Salisbury side? Also, anyone take a temperature reading?

Fished the incoming tide this morning on the beachfront with the Weirmeister. Picked up five schoolies then moved down the beach and picked up five more. One micro, some teens and a couple low to mid twenties.

Guys spread out on the beachfront so there
was lots of room. Enjoy it while it lasts.

BTW 495N is ground down for repaving from rte.97 to rte. 110 in Haverhill. And it looks like the center of Newbury is installing sewerage. That could make for a nasty commute through town.
