Cape Spring Kickoff

Brought this up a while back.. Guess it's time to bring it back to the top.

So who's up for some social fishin to start the season.

Weekends of May 3 and May 17 look viable for me.

May 3rd would probably mean the southside estuaries

May 17 could be anywhere.

I can put up a few people and I hear Area Sixty One can also.

Among other options are the Anchorage and Nickerson.

So should we make a plan?

I have both weekends open Fred! Your chosen dates straddle my Bass tournaments perfectly so I can be gone every weekend for the entire month of May.

Sounds good to me as well. I should be able to do at least one of the days on either weekend.

Nick -

Are you down in the tropics or back home now?

I am out for May 17-18th but can do the earlier weekend and last weekend.

I'm back. I'll write up a little report when I get a chance. Short Story shorter...Saw more Tarpon than I've ever seen before. Saw a Permit for the first time. Saw a couple bonefish. Hooked some Barracuda. Nothing else liked my selection. Other Fauna included...Nurse Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays, Pods of Dolphins, Manatees, Roseated Spoonbills, Egrets, Herons, and a Everglades National Park Ranger. All of this always in less than 7 feet of water. The Keys are amazing. I just gotta figure out how to catch their fish.

Cape Spring Kickoff

I'd love to join the gang for either weekend. Things should be under way down here, but it would be good to get back to the Far Side after the winter we've had. Count me in!

Best regards,

-Doc

Looks like we have a quorum. 3 or 4 people is enough for me to get a honeydo pass on something I instigated. Now the date. At this point I like the weekend of the 3rd. Good way to break out of this winter funk and I ain't going to get much chance to fish before then.

What's the preference and can we set a date?

17th will be better fishing if stats from past years are considered. I will be in Oregon "on business" or it would take wild horses to drag me off the cape.

What about the 10th? Oh yeah! Mother's Day weekend.

Fish should be holding in southside river mouths, certain estuaries should have fish in them, and the migrants would have probably taken the first turn rather than the big one at the elbow; and those who missed it would be tucked up inside a more "pleasant" location. The waters around Area61 should be holding their usual spring push, as the commercial guys who start in April will tell you. Craigville and South Cape can be pretty explosive in early May, Poppy gets some good early fish as does Wianno and Cotuit. If we get any boaters in the mix the herring on the far side should attract some big fish provided the migration has reached that area. If all else fails we can all drive back to Rhody

I guess it all depends on water temps. Length of days is constant but water temps may need a little tweak this spring for a good outing on the 3rd. Keep the fingers crossed!

Talking

Just remembered. There is a big Kayak demo weekend on the 17th at the Goose Hummock. We could do both on that weekend. Something to think about. FishHawk

I think Juro;s right. The 17th will provide great fishing while the 3rd could be touch and go. However, I'll be there whenever we decide.

May 17th is an annual Kayak fling over on the "fabled" Esopus Flats (Hudson). Any later date and I'll be up!
