Two tales- Whales & Tuna, Bay side sippin Stripers

I spent last week at Cape Cod with my wife celebrating her birthday and our 32nd anniversary. I fished only once because most every time I went there was so many weeds in the water it would have been more trouble then its worth. I did have two great experiences on the water. The first was the one time that I was fishing. I walked out on the Brewster flats Tuesday evening about two hours before dark as the tide bottomed out. I had a great time casting to sipping bass for two hours and having sand eels explode out of the water as I walk along. I had to leave much sooner then I wished because of dark and fog.
The next experience was a non-fishing one. We went on a Whale watch out of P-town and I kept telling my wife that I wanted to see a Tuna. Whales smales I knew that they would be there. It happened about two miles off Race Point the naturalist said, Wow there goes a Tuna. I move to the other side of the ship just in time to see three or four huge Tuna pinning a school of bluefish up against the hull of the ship. Here were twenty inch Bluefish swimming for their lives being chased by six foot long blue-green missiles. We got to see a Tuna take a Blue out of the air right in front of us. If we had been in a 20-foot CC it would have happened at eye level. Someday I have got to fish for these magnificent predators.

Few will ever experience that and of all the people on the whale watch I'll bet very few appreciate the rarity of such a sight.
