It's about that time...

for New Englanders to reminisce about the season that just passed, or at least is about to pass...

So what were the most important lessons you learned this year?

When you get a chance to go....go! When you go, the tides might not be perfect, but getting to fish is.

After a lifetime of fishing the beaches fishing from a boat is a whole new game. Getting down to the fish is my biggest problem. I don`t have the patience to wait for a line to sink to 25 or 30 ft. Also learned FA`s go farther north than I thought! Also Ct. has some very nice spots that I`d never seen before.

Used a upsized floating line for the first time this past year boat fishing for Bonita and small bluefin tuna. Found out that the ability to lift and recast a long line back into the fast movers provided for extra hookups. Also discovered that Slinger will travel a bit further North to the Middleside for FAs

Love of my life: she likes the Cape

This is my fifth year on the cape. Two years ago, my wife, decided to see first-hand what prompted me to return. She now sees what the lure is for me.

As a result, she will be with me from Memorial Day thru the end of June. I'll be a bit longer, September thru early October. She is a teacher and will retire next year.

In a conversation a couple of nights ago over a bottle of cab, she said," how about spending May, June, Sept & Oct on the Cape?: Duh, what do you say?

That was the highlight of my season. The other notables of the season include getting my sons into keeper bass, my first albie, and helping other forum members to have a memorable experience on the Cape.

The forum is a real slice of life. I have met some great people on the Cape, thanks to the forum, e.g. Striblue, Double Haul, Fishhawk, CSJ60, Juro, Rooster, Paxton, Rip Ryder, Striper, Penguin, etc.

The Pommies, or the Brits, have found the Cape. I have enjoyed their compassion for the resource, and their sense of humor this season. I suspect we will see more of them next year.

Thank you Cape for a memorable year.

Simms

The Rip Trips were great and it was good to fish with the gang. 05 should be another great year. FishHawk.
