But a word or warning before you embark upon this journey.
You must be prepared to walk a very lonely path.
Be ready to face ridicule and disbelief in the car park.
You will be considered Politically Incorrect.
When you are successfull you will be suspected of witchcraft and, well, you might recall what happened at Salem a few years back
Watching the rerun of the Matrix Trilogy on UK ITV this past couple of nights put things into perspective.
You see there is no turning back.
So, will it be the red pill, or the blue pill?

Learn a few more Middleside Striper Spots
Beat the Canal into submission any way I can
Have a better year for shore Albies than last year

Setting my Sights...
Due to my limited time on the Cape, my goals will be kept simple.
1. Land a Striper over 36".
2. Spend as much time with my Brother and Dad.
3. Keep up with my father on a death march.
4. Cast a 2-Hander.
5. Not be afraid of being bitten by a seal.
Looking forward to the Clave, see you all soon.

Every year I come up with goals such as catching a new species or fishing a certain new location. This year I am going to keep it simple.
My goals are:
1. Fish as much as possible
2. Fish as many different places as possible
3. Keep a detailed log of my trips. (I always say I am going to do this but this year I hope to deliever on the goal.).

1. Learn to fish the Surf.
2. Fish the Refuge in the Yak.
3. Observe and learn the Canal two handed fishing.
4. Improve on my site fishing.
5. Explore and learn Long Island for the Fall Run.
I have learned a lot by watching some of the great fishermen on this site. Will continue to do so. We really have a good thing going here. FishHawk

Four goals for the year:
1. Expose my wife to flyfishing the Cape.
2. Spend more quality time with my sons.
3. Target large fish.
4. Become involved with Friends of Monomoy.

FIRST and FOREMOST:
Improve casting ability. Dial in what works with rods I currently own.
Learn more about when, where and why fish are where they are and
what they are feeding on.
Spend as much time as possible with new friends, on and off the water
Every minute spent in pursuit of a tight line.
ABOVE ALL ELSE:
Count my blessings and make each day worthwhile.

Oh yeah another goal - to make the contributors to the "Hannah Fund" some of the best damn two-handed casters east of the Mississipi (except for Sean of course)

Fish the upper estuary by my place over the next couple of weeks, maybe throwing something big and alewife like. Maybe get the missus hooked up with a schoolie or two. Also check out a couple of bayside creeks.
Late May through early July I want to get tuned in to the rythems and patterns on the bayside flats. I've fished them a bit too casually the last couple of years.
Late May through the summer I want to work on the sight fishing skills.
Sometime I'm going to get a speycasting lesson from Juro

My goals are relatively simple and the same as last year:
1. Continue to try and learn at least one more thing each time out;
2. Study patterns of fish behavior at various times in the season and at various stages of the tides;
3. Be observant of everything....pay attention and when something works or doesn't, try and figure it out;
4. Explore new locations and changes in the topography;
5. Continiue to share what little I know with others, as they have shared with me....this one is probably the best experience that I have had. Helping a few newbies last year was almost as much fun as catching fish myself...maybe more so.
6. Enjoy being out there, no matter the success or lack thereof;
7. Remember to put Celebrex in my backpack and not forget as I did last week ;
8. Be thankful for each moment fishing;
9. Avoid getting a ticket on the way down :-)
10. Continue to enjoy our fine Captain's humor!
11. Continue to enjoy fishing with the friends that I have made and meet new ones.
If I succeeed at the above...the rest will come naturally.
