YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

I propose an impromptu bonito mini-clave this weekend. We will launch and row, paddle or swim to various south / upper cape locales to flyfish for bonito. Then we'll get together to share stories and enjoy the good fresh seafood and other entrees the cape restaurants have to offer.

If there are a half dozen, one spot is fine. If there are a dozen, we might spread out and clue each other in with cell phones.

If more, then we can choose from a number of potential bonito holes:

Bass River mouth, Stage Island - launch at Veterans or several other ramps
Craigville inside to end of inlet - Bumps River
Waquoit west jetty (Washburn) - White's landing or other options
Cotuit / Dead Neck - landings around but need to investigate access to non-res
Poppy - (wade)
Seaview - ticket is $15, cheap if three split the cost
Falmouth Salt Ponds (wade)

Let me know if there is any interest.

Juro

You beat me... I've got a 3 hp electric on a 12 foot dory! Good thing there are oars involved.

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

JohnM and I are planning a pre-dawn assault along similar lines. I can't speak for John, but I'd be into claving it. The Washburn side of Wacky would be killer!! If it happens, I'll be the one mooning all the bait chuckers on the other side

I wish it were otherwise, but as it stands, all I have is an 8 HP Tohatsu motor to offer.

Juro,
I have a Saturn but that won't do me too good in the water. Other than that I have a wallet (for any shuttle services) and a serious itching to catch a bonito. I would love to go.

Count me in if we're wading, or unless I learn to float over the next 3 days. Juro, I'll give you a buzz on the cell over the next couple of days! Be down @ Nickerson Park from Weds-Fri. a.m.

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

Juro,

Where will we be putting in and what time? What kind of flies do I need to tie? What day will this take place? Saturday would be best for me, but I probibly could make it Sunday too. If Dave P.is not going to be able to make it, I will have room for one other guy. What is your cell phone number? Mine is 508-7830605.

Lots of backing,

Craig

Craig:

Tie up some standard white bunny flies with a little olive and silver flashabou. I connected in Woods Hole yesterday with 2 bones on a bunny fly tied this way. I also had lead eyes on it.......

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

Craig,

Tie up some bone bunnies in various lengths and hook sizes. These are very simple to do and relatively cheap. Some say not to use cross cuts for the palmering, but unless the zonker strips are VERY good quality, the overall effect on fish (stripers only in my experience -- hoping to change that soon) is less than with the cuts.... YMMV. Any color is fine for bonito...so long as it's white.

I tied up a few pure white silver side jobbies last night -- something akin to the Ray's Fly style I mentioned in my Ahab story. Bonito have extraordinary visual accuity so shoot for flies that are as realistic as possible.

As to time and place. I like Sat. in the Waquoit neighborhood somewhere around 4 AM.

Now if I can only stay focussed on work....

John M.,
No....I'm not out on the Vineyard until Sunday afternoon. Saturday is packing day plus draft day for the local Fantasy Football league....Staying until Labor Day. Can't wait!
So, I guess I only have 1/2 an excuse for Saturday...
