juro Should've gone with the sluggo! The best deep eel imitation I've seen }>

Bill Yup. Sand Eel. I dropped in to see Harry. Picked up a couple of things I needed including . . . a couple of plugs. They're for my kids and guests . . honest.

juro Bill - I only qualified for your mercy for the 45 seconds. The rest of the time I was a shoe-in for the tidy bowl man! ;-)

Nice to hear about the Nauset fish, Harry Koons of Nauset Angler says "cigar sized sand eels have moved onto the beach and big fish have too." Check his site often, he updates it all the time.

Bill - did it take a sand eel?

Bill Didn't use a smiley because I didn't know how. Do now }>.

All kidding aside, Juro was pretty impressive on the platform. He got the hang of it and was proficient in no time. I didn't even attempt it. There was current, wind, not to mention the pressure of poling for Todd. Competency was clearly demonstrated when Juro spotted distant fish and maneuvered the boat up current right where it had to go. Todd was able to relax and have fun fishing while someone else poled - probably something he doesn't get to do often

On another note, fished outside Nauset very early this am. One keeper.

If Juro poles for you, be prepared to feel like you're circling the drawn in a large sink. Todd makes it look effortless. Juro makes it look like the boat has a serious design flaw.
Hey! WHeres' the smilie? ;-) <VBG>

I will have you know that I held the boat steady for a whole 45 seconds in a gale wind, raging tide current et al. Within that 45 seconds Todd caught a great keeper fish sight casting to a rushing pod. It was my 45 seconds of glory on a poling platform.

Seriously, I am looking forward to doing a lot of it and getting half decent someday. I think I will go mount a stand on my canoe for practice ;-)

FishHawk Dick Ivers and I took a trip of a lifetime on June 11th with Capt Murphy. I am still in a state of shock as to what we experienced. Great guide ,we had a blast. Juro thanks again for having Todd at the Casting Clave , where we got to know him and book the trip. My advise is to save your money and book with Capt. Murphy.

juro Wow! That was quick.

Hey do me a favor, ask Todd if he would like me to pole for you guys ^_^

Bill Stanton will tell you - his "no" will be faster than Jeff's "I'm in!" <VBG>

I'd wish you a great time but I already know you will.
