If you haven't been told yet, being closer to the cape will yield better fishing in the SALT. But on the No. Shore people are more intelligent.
But anyway I wanted to mention that Oct. was my best month last year. The No. Shore above Boston held on while the cape was pretty much done for the season (shrug). So you could get some great outings in during that month. Each fall is different, so we'll send you where the fish are. Got a 9 wt.?
