Winds shifting SW for a couple of days...



I think this is going to be like the Red Sox 9th inning last night... clutch win for the clavers.

Forecast looks decent as well- bring the foul weather gear.

Strong SWs could bring a little warmer water

Hopefully, the next two days of SW 20-25 with gust to 40 will bring some of the warmer water up from mid atlantic to at least get us up into the 50' mark. Still showing 46-48' out there. Couple of days of mid 50' water may help get the metabolism of the cows fired up a bit. Like to start hearing more about larger fish other than schoolies and really skinny 30-31inch fish.

Sat Departure time

Capt Keith

What time are you planning on the first departure Sat morn? From the looks of things there is going to be a goodly number at the "Clave" plus unknown number of non-clave fisherpeople!
Sat morn alarm clocks gotta be set so "Breakfast at Leo's" can be done, too!

Keith we're on the same wavelength brutha! I've been looking at the surface temp graphs again and the 'good stuff' is still down and away.

I was a bit worried Sat when the beach had no signs and the temps down in the lower basin were downright frigid on the lee of the north wind.

The tub was nice and warm and loaded with schoolies.

Heard from commercial guys that the squid are showing in numbers in the weir traps off Harwich and of course the herring runs are strong this year due to the moratorium.

Hope it all comes together...

Bring rain gear- present forecasts for Fri/Sat indicate possible showers.

Get out there and practice those "off the windward shoulder" casts.

Saturday AM

The admiral and I will be there by 730am. Will probably start shuttling between 745 and 8am. Like last year there will be a couple of trips with a lot of long winter hellos before and between trips, so don't worry if breakfast runs over, we'll get you over there.

North wind on the outside means strong side for righties, not the prevailing but I'll take it.

I was thinking of the conga line on the inside. The 'hot spot' in the tub could be a challenge for the unprepared too

I'll be seeing you out front

South / Southwest Winds Getting It DONE

What a HUGE difference a couple of days makes!



Previous images display a significant trend of warming.

Also note that flume of cold water (40s) reaching upward along the outer cape. Hope the shift clears all that and we see 50's on the outside this weekend despite expected strong north winds.

Correct me if I'm wrong but "when the north winds blow the fish don't show" on the outside

That's a close second to "when the wind is east the fishing is least" on my hated sayings list

There's a lot of evidence that the biomass is still finning toward (vs. past) the elbow based on reports to the west. The "fish weir" on the inside of the Monomoy Refuge (since the closure) should be stalling new arrivals for us and I'm sure there are more than schoolies filling the trap daily between now and the dog days.

I'll bet a lot of fish have turned the corner the last couple of days with the temp shift, probably tucking into Pleasant Bay. WHo knows.

I'm sure there will be good fish to be had, the key is dialing in to the good ones with so many smaller ones around.
