Is that pic Weekapaug beach and breachway? If so, I was on the jetty. What a day that was!

As for flyfishing for blues at south Cape, I switched temporarily to spinning, not because of distance...

5-5: Seen in my travels...

This was the breakthrough weekend for (bigger) stripers and even bluefish arrivals. But no one told the schoolies ;-).

Anywho, caught several 28-33 inch stripers at the Canal, a bunch of just...

RE:RI Clave question

Ugh, woke up this AM feeling horrible (ear infection). Weekend is therefore up in the air. Leave some cows out there for me!

RE:RI Clave question

OK, lessee...

If I see Arabs with red bandanas, beige hats, and green slickers pointing their headlights at the beach, I know I've found the group ;)...Or something like that...

Sounds like...

RI Clave question

I'm not officially in the Clave but will be down tomorrow (Thursday) and one of the weekend days. Any easy way of IDing people, like hats? Wouldn't mind putting a few faces to names when I'm there....

RE:New RI Website

Art,

Figured you were laid up, as I hadn't seen a post from you in a while. Here's hoping you have a speedy recovery and get back on the water ASAP. RI fishing is going to be hopping, if it isn't...

RE:BONECLAVE 2000

No way I can attend the full Clave, but I may put in an early daytime appearance on the east side of WaCkY jetties next Sunday. So if you see someone in a green windbreaker frantically thumbing for a...

8-27: Rhody Bonestalk

Yet another tunoid recon report, this time from South County, RI. Flogged the West Wall this AM to a froth for two hours to no effect. Plenty o bait (chovies and silversides), but somebody forgot to...

RE:8-22: WaCkY Reconnaissance

Funny, I was thinking the same thing as I was watching the action. Just never felt like humping the video cam all the way out there ;). But if you want a guaranteed video of a classic bass blitz (and...

8-22: WaCkY Reconnaissance

Two reasons for going to Waquoit this AM. One, I haven't been there since early July. Two, a reconnaisance mission to check status of tiny tunas.

Well, there were no bones or FA in the channel...

RE:BONITO'S FROM SHORE?

As Juro said, Vineyard Sound is ground zero, at least right now.

Only thing I can add is that I saw real,live bonito busting for a good 30 minutes in the west end of the Canal at the Tidal Flats....

Speedsters in Canal?

Anyone here in that flyfishing "conga line" at the Tidal Flats at west end of Canal Sunday morning? I saw what I'm 90 percent sure was a pod of breaking bonito nearby. Tried for 'em just west of the...

RE:Sunday Chatham Light

If it's any consolation, I was also there (a little earlier than you), and didn't get so much as one hit in two hours. One group of guys leaving as I was arriving didn't get one fish in six hours! If...

RE:Fly fishing the Canal??

It ain't easy, primarily because the access is so good that there are people fishing all over. Also, higher tides limit backcast room, unless you master the vertical backcast or can roll cast a...

RE:A future Clave sight: Cuttyhunk

Juro,

The thought has crossed my mind ;). Maybe a good winter project in retirement.

There was a nice article in one of the fishing magazines about surf fishing Cuttyhunk, with specific...

RE:A future Clave sight: Cuttyhunk

Guys,

I've been there several times. Just a few comments.

First, the ferry is small, so if you are getting a large group together you may want to warn the ferry captain...

RE:Monomoy at night

My thought is that if you tried nearly every size and profile, it could have been the retrieve. Sometimes, when they don't touch anything, I'll try something completely outlandish, like stripping...

As of 7-7, it was 14,000 gallons of heavy #6 fuel oil. See http://www.savebay.org/oilspillupdate.htm

They've collected about 8300 gallons of oil/water mix with booms and vacuums so far. Meanwhile...

RE:Brewster Flats/Billingsgate 7/3

Note to waders without 'yaks:

Take Brewster Flats, double the potential for wading trouble, and you have Barnstable Harbor. These are great, productive spots and it's awfully tempting to stay out...

RE:RHODY BONE!

Guys,

I don't know when you are planning to hold the BoneClave but a sanity check about shore fishing in RI for bones and albies. Daytime fishing in the breachways and the pier in Narragansett,...

RE:Prospecting for new spots (Nahant)

Been to Nahant many times for other reasons than fishing. If it's a hot spot (and I'm sure it is), it's a well-kept secret. As for access, I know of a couple of very small parking lots but don't know...
