jfbasser Nice pic! Maybe some food for thought for the modern "phishing ladder" crowd....bring a 40 foot extension and drop it across the channels for access on phoot

If that's what it takes... get a certified Left Coast Speyite to go slummin' in Striper Country...
then standin' on my head is a small price to pay for the good company...

I was playing around with composition, colour, and texture...
Trying to keep my phace and phingers phrom phreezing and Lucy Lu out of the water...
'Looked a bit like flying inverted over the west Texas hill country but without the ejection seat, negative G's, and smell of hydraulic fluid...
So much for artsy fartsy...

Phrozen Phace...

Low tide at the Bowl...
And a view from the Area 61 eye-in-the-sky...
Lesson learned...Unlike my bank account CD's, scouting pays good dividends!

juro Thanks Pete!

OK gang, we are all free to talk about the mecca on the internet now

Chris .....That early season and a Stone Horse full of 'Clavers is a recipe for a fantastic weekend.

.....No matter who you meet in the parking lot or on the causeway an excellent day follows.

.....Regardless of when your last post was a smlie and a nod always seems to follow.

Regards for the seasons past and ahead. Can't wait to see you all at the shows and back on the beach.

Adrian 1. "It 'aint over 'till it's over!" Heading to Sandy Hook Joizey this Saturday. (Hard men are planning winter excursions as we speak - will be fitting icebreaking kit to front of yak )

2. Above all else, trust your instincts. If if feels like the right thing to do, it probably is. If you don't do it, you almost always end up regretting it.

3. Fish at night. This season was a first serious after-dark experience for me and I am totally addicted. Local areas heavilly fished and/or devoid of fish during the daylight hours really come alive after dark. Plus I'm usually the only one on the water

4. Is it my immagination or did we see yet another increase in the average size of fish this season? There was no shoratge of schoolies but I had more 30"+ fish this year.

5. Always great to have the company of forum friends on the water. From early season Pike expeditions with Mark (DbleHaul) to the annual gatherings on the Cape with Striblue, Juro, FredA and the gang!

6. Nice to see an increasing number of fellow Brits making the crossing too. Expect to see a lot more of them next season - I see a lot of trips to the Cape in the planning stages on other sites

Apparently that principle only applies to fish on Monomoy.

You can count on that!

striblue Juro... I will post that picture this evening... a bit more to the right, into the crimp of the beach. Fred, I know exactly what you mean. So , it is still there I see..... and Mark... Fish DO care about the type of gear you have.
11-08-2004 08:15 AM
Dble Haul Three things:

1. Fish don't care what brand of gear you're using.

2. Fishing with the people from this site guarantees a good time.

3. When fishing a beach and someone who really knows saltwater FF is up for a chat or lending a bit of advice, LISTEN.

FredA 1. Every year I find I know less than I thought I knew the year before.
2. It's nice to fool around with different flies but if I need a tug nothin beats jig fly in olive, chartruse over white.

I was at the spot in striblues pic yesterday. Like an early September morning. I walked down South beach a mile or two. No fish though the word was a lot of small fish are around. Had birds in a tizzy about a third of a mile from where I was about to turn around, but by the time I got there they were gone. Nice piece of structure though, in front of the lobster bouy memorial (know the spot John?).

juro John -

Is there a shot with the segment a little to the right? The movement of the mecca shoal is astounding even since October!

I learned a lot about fish highways in 2004. I always knew about them, and benefited from studying them, but put much more time into documenting them in my journals this year and the dividends were high.

In fact, I believe the notion of "hot spots" is founded on fish highways in striper country.

striblue Learning that I still have more to learn and fishing with all the guys here and getting to know them has been fun and rewarding. Here is a shot I took this past friday afternoon....
