I dearly miss the days when you used to be able to get a pretty good sense of the fishing on Cape by reading the forums during the week while planning out the weekend. I don't share on the forums any...

Very good day in Brewster yesterday -- pretty much sight-casting to singles for a few hrs. I was melancholy the whole trip as usual -- fishing around the Cape (at least on the flats) is a shadow of...

A person would have a VERY hard time convincing me that the fish stocks are even a shadow of what they were in the mid-90's right now.

Lot of small fish -- both stripers and blues -- around Red...

Are the legs pulled through the EZ-Body or glued underneath? Never enough crab patterns.

I ran a Redfisher for seven years around Monomoy and don't ever remember a day when the weather was a problem -- common sense required, of course.

Hi Juro! I'm here every day. I'm just quiet. I'll try to share more. I'm starting the day on the wrong end of the state, but I hope to get some time in this weekend. Steve

With a 12:30 p.m. high I'd consider dropping in at Hardings and working the shorline there. It's been hot and you won't be dealing with boat traffic. A short hop across the channel puts you on Common...

It's made with Rub-R-Mold, which is a mold building material available at art supply stores. I fished those extensively the last two seasons with a lot of success. They are not especially durable and...

I wrote some notes as a primer for a local flyshop in 1994. I've changed my mind about some of this stuff, but I caught plenty of fish when I followed this religiously:

The pace on the West side last week was slower than the previous 3, IMO. There are still some nice fish and you'll have your shots at some big ladies. The Crib was full of fish which had lockjaw....

Orvis Mirage has worked well for me over the past few seasons. I think that all of the brands are very similar, personally. I only use fluoro for the tippet, and I hit the knot with superglue at...

That is one scary chart. Boats U.S. and E&B both carry decent and fairly recent charts of the area. None are any good for navigating, IMO. Go when the light is good and the tide is rising and you...

We caught a lot of small fish this weekend and we've seen many big pods of micros over the past couple of weeks. This is totally unscientific, but I've been a little relieved as I haven't seen these...

I may try to get out this afternoon, although it's blowing pretty good here in Brewster.

Have fun. Steve
