I call the US Fish And Wildlife in Sudbury. They had no knowledge of the flats being closed. They will be open like last year. The only think that is banned are jet skis which is a town ordance.

Those horseshoe crabs always hump my foot anyway! Must be my scuba booties. I'd just as soon play golf in June anyway

I heard about this also but the only definite closure was the month of June which is the spawning time for them. There is great evidence however that the real threat comes from the horshoe crab which also favors that area for spawning. Of course there are those who would like to use this as an excuse to keep us all out and for good.

Fiction this is most definitely not!

The liberal press most probably didn't want to run it in the general circulation so as not to offend anyone.

Check out the Cape Cod edition of the globe.

Something about protecting the silver backed flembot.

You know... there is a fiction contest going on and that's the first entry. As good as that was I think a bunch of fishermen should be able to do better than that!

RE:Sight Fishing/Flats

I landed my first decent fish of the season last year in the shallows with a sinking line and about a 4 foot leader.

I've been thinking, reading & asking the "pro's" about line colors & types and have come to my own conclusion that if you are casting & intercepting a fish, then the color doesn't matter.

By the way, in case nobody read it in the Globe & the Cape Cod Times today, the flats off Monomoy are going to be closed to all traffic this year. Foot, boat, commercial or recreational. I would suggest everyone try out the flats off of Dorchester & Charlestown, never really discussed but a very hot spot.

RE:Sight Fishing/Flats

John I heard that famed flats guide Randy Jones uses a sinking line on Monomoy and also a two handed rod. I want to book a trip with him some time and learn how he does it. I guess he leads the fish and gets great results. I have used 300g lines to fish the channel on North Monomy but use and intermedate for skinny water.

RE:Sight Fishing/Flats

Well John if it wasn't for the loose screws during the spool exchange I might have been incurably in love with that Loop over the weekend. Still thinking things over for a new reel...

RE:Sight Fishing/Flats

Thanks Juro, that makes a lot of sense. Maybe this year I will opt for that approach... oh no, extra spools for Tibor, Islander and Abel.. I don't know.
