Clave Fishin

Anybody got itches to scratch. Long range forcast looks favorable and I have a few venues I'd like to look at. One, obviously, is south beach but looking around last weekend has me thinking of other possibilities. Maybe the yak is in order.

Friday evening I'll probably swing a fly in the river by the house. Fish will be there if anybody cares to join me. The blues bar thing in Hyannis sounds like just the ticket to kick off the weekend, that is, if I were 20 years younger. Must be the wisdom of approaching middle age creeping in.

I am debating checking out the cut up on nauset with the yak on Saturday. May just do it Sunday instead if I can get the day off to fish but I am not sure that will happen or not.

I'm dragging my boat down this weekend to gather a little G-2 and leaving it for next weekend. Plan to check out the cut tomorrow morning, last two hours of incoming.

I will certainly have the yak and would also like to check out the new cut. Sunday would work for me too. I plan to be on the Cape all week-end

Lets see how the weather shapes up over the coming week.

A weekend won't cover all the spots I hope to scout but... it sure beats workin!

I will take the Rip Ryder one day and possibly oversand on Nauset the other, down to the cut. I can pack several anglers in the back if interested.

Not definite yet though, I have to see about the permit renewal etc. I got a letter saying I don't need to re-inspect given the same registration since 2006.

let's collaborate more as the weekend approaches

Shook hands with Admiral Ed for the first time of the season this morning and headed down to see Capt'n Keith with my friend Bill and two birders. Heard fishawk was out there but did not cross paths.

We walked pretty far down the beach looking for migrants but nothing happening there. Wind was howling and it was very cold, if things don't change by next week wear layers.

The NEW midway washover was still pushing volumes of ocean water into the refuge basin even at half ebb! So if this keeps us thru the summer (depends on a barrier bar clearing) then fresh ocean water will be keeping SB good in the dog days. I hope it blows wide open like Nauset! It could go either way... I know which way I want it to go. Gentlemen, get your shovels lets clear that puppy!

Anyway the temps inside near the cut were frigid whereas the tub water was actually quite warm as expected. Schoolies on top all over the place and we lost count of the fish landed, only one in the 'just under' class but nice to get into the drag on the first outing.

Let's hope for a lot of wind from the south and really hot days until the clave, when the wind can lay down and leave us with bluebird conditions and loads of newly arriving fish. Cash in any credits you have with the weather gods this week.

Schoolies galore over on the refuge side as well. Sand eels are back and reports of lots of squid, herring in the traps.

South Beach shoreline structure was fair and could make things easy due to longshore bar - but who knows how long it will last. Also if the ends of the bar opens up things could get silly good next weekend.

Still could turn out to be a mecca year with a nice bar probably dry for minus tides. The outer bars were dry near low past big girl and in the middle of the inlet on the ocean's edge.

Lighthouse beach has become non-descript and has lost a lot of sand this winter. Humps in front of the rockpile gone and a repeat of four years ago on the immediate front beach for anyone who remembers that.

Did not go up to look at the Nauset cut but there was a nice aerial on the front page of the cape cod times today.

Sandwich and coffee was excellent at the Chatham Village Cafe as usual as was a hot chowdah at the Squire afterwards, which was hoppin' today.

Good to see the homewaters again after a long winter, headed home on the noon ferry and am back to reality to knock off obligations.

No lack of schoolies already, keep the fingers crossed for the cows to come home in time for our clave.

Stripers, Blues, Inshore tuna!

Fred,

Think a quiet evening of swinging a fly near your house sounds like just what the Doc ordered. If I can remember how to get there, I'll see you Friday PM. I'm not sure I can handle a night of blues and beer after the drive. The only thing worse than getting older...is not getting older.

Best regards,

-Doc

The new cut is gorgeous. Drove around it on Saturday afternoon. Fished the bay from noon until 4 in howling NE winds, managed one nice fish off the tip of Strong and missed another- that was it. Fished the lighthouse with the long rod for a couple of hours yesterday- missed one saw one other caught. Squire was fun Saturday night, or so they tell me. Be down there about non on Friday.
