Fishing for Ph d's

Fished the Flats yesterday with the Iron Man from Chatham. What a day we had. Lots of hungry stripers. Caught a couple of single Phd bass site fishing . What a thrill when it all comes together. That's what keeps me coming back. When you get one of these guys you have earned your fish. I even got an "at a boy". from a passing boat. Thanks to all the regular Flats guys who have taught me a lot.

Ps Ron I got them with the dreaded North East wind howling.

I was day-dreaming all day yesterday at work. What a beautiful day! Thanks for the report.

I had the low light (rain, lightning looming) braille / scent fishing, casting by spidey sense version of what you and John had yesterday... but I'm not complaining. It was schmokin'

Atta boy Bill. Guess you and the mayor showed'em - who has the PhDs. This time of year it can be tough on the flats. You guys put your time in, and it shows. See ya shortly.

Nice work. Nothing more rewarding than a big flats single taken on foot!

Excellent Bill

I was stuck at my desk in CT yesterday and thinking what a perfect day it would be for the flats. Glad you were able to enjoy it!

BTW - baby bunker already off Chatham outside.

Fishhawk,

Job well done. I was looking out of my office window yesterday wishing I was on the flats. It's surprising with a NE wind but I guess you're not called fishhawk for nothing.....PM me and let me know what color marshmellow you were using

Given yesterday's experience with John, given that the 2 days before were hot fishing, I'm beginning to think that with the narrowing of the southway, we no longer have a situation were there is a daily mix of resident and non resident fish. Thus, the patern we are experiencing is the resident fish feeding heavily, then goint off feeding.
I remember that 3 to 5 years ago...if one came upon a pod of fish that was not feeding, I went walking and found another that was. Now it appears that we have a more resident population and when the feeding is off, it's off in the whole area. Just my theory.
