Rip Ryder Ferry service starts Sat May 7th

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to give you all a heads up, that we will begin our services this coming Saturday May 7th. We will run from 8-4 on the weekends and do a limited schedule during the week. Weekdays I will offer a 8am drop with choice of either 2pm or 4pm pickup. Please give me a call ahead on the week day trips, so I will know there is some interest, otherwise I will not just show up at 8am until things start to really get going.

Fee this year will be $15 per person for N. Monomoy or S. Beach. Sorry to do this but fuel is already at an all time high of over $3 a gallon at the dock and the word is it may get close to $4 by July.

I should have the 2005 frequent Ryder cards shortly and I will make up the difference on the FREE end with the price change. Your previous year Ryder cards are all still good and you can continue to work off those.

Look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Capt Keith and the Admiral.

Great news!

Is the SB landing site still in the same location?

Can't wait to get back on the flats!

Wait a minute! We do need cherry blossoms

I've been watching it like a hawk, the true arrival of stripers has been closely tied to their bloom every year since Smitty told me this 24 years ago.

Another season begins!!!!!!!

Capt. Keith and the Admiral. Thanks for the heads up! $15.00 is still a bargain as far as I'm concerned. All we need now is some updated water temperatures and
I'm sure the fish will arrive as they always do. Thanks Keith! See you soon.

Phil

OK Juro....I will tone down my excitement....put my tail between my legs....and admit and accept that we do need cherry blossoms
Ron
PS: But cherry blossoms or not, I am still planning to hit the water this Friday, weather permitting (weekend out, Mother's Day Weekend, for those who forgot)
PPS: Juro....in what state do the cherry blossoms have to be blooming, is Georgia acceptable?

Put away the trout gear, schoolies are in the Tub

Went out this morning to get some hours on the new motors before the first wave shows up. Took a few cast around the SB landing, the rosebush and the tub. Got hits at all three, but saw fish on the flat in the tub. Had 5-6 fish chasing every cast. Got two and most looked to be in the 18-22 inch range. There were also quite a few that were hitting, but were just too small to take a 6" Sluggo.

Try again tomorrow, when I launch the Parker and will try switching to the 4" sluggo.

Thank god for sluggos!!!

Listen, it's a good thing I had them, since the boat next to me in the tub, with two flyfisherman, was watching me take the hits and the fish.

About time us "spinners" got a chance to take the lead back.


Besides, in my long, long, long career outthere, I have seen one flyfisherman using 4" white sluggos on his FLYROD.

I've been tempted to try that with the 3" Arkansas shiner sluggos -- they're a perfect anchovy imitation and I've caught loads of fish with them on the spin rod. So far, I've been able to resist the urge . Those gummy minnow flies are practically the same thing anyway, so why not just use a sluggo?

Lou Tabory to the rescue....

I'd prefer to give a white Tabory Snake Fly a shot as a "Sluggo Fly"...look kinda similar....got one in front of me right now. Didn't do the tying (Orvis catalog) but am in the process of educating myself. Got the gear, just need the materials and above all...THE TIME...
Doc Shep

P.S. Correct that...just caught a glimpse of Bob Popovics Surf Candy...a MUCH BETTER "Sluggo" imitation!!!
