And to think last year was much better. After a twinkie initiation at Morris Island the week prior to Mother's Day, I met up with my flats bro Dave Pearson the day before Mother's Day at a flat near this one and the two of us had waves and waves of bass coming over the 1.5 to 3 ft flats until we were sore from the sight fishing extravaganza.

I felt better about this year's scout trip #2 because of the odds being slimmer, thus the victory sweeter - but certainly the fishing was better last year.

I have records of scouting as early as March 28 in past years and seeing good tern activity around Nobska and the Knob; one year the mouth of the Bass River was choked with fresh fish on April 10-11th, before tax day.

Most importantly...

Did anyone notice that the majority of CHERRY blossoms bloomed within the last 36-48 hours? Don't be fooled by dogwoods, magnolias and apple blossoms... the cherry are the only one's that count.
