Weekend

Haven't seen many reports this Monday but I for one did terrible this past weekend. Water temps seemed to have spiked from last weekend so maybe that had an affect. Saw a good number of fish on Brewster but much smaller then last weekend and still finicky as heck. Picked up a few schoolies but that was it.

Fished the bayside for about an hour Saturday am. Overslept and missed my target of first light. Got a few schoolies. But it was pleasant. Then off to RI for a graduation party. I feel like I'm missing the June fishing. Woke up to flashes of lightning sunday am and didn't bother.

Don't feel bad I've been out 12 times this month and I feel like I've missed June fishing.

The places that I have found fish though tell me two things...

An average fish is bigger this year than last...

The belief that spring-time fly patterns don't really matter may need some updating. A few times I've found a ton of fish but couldn't get bitten off by a bluefish. Only time I felt that rejected was when I dropped my wallet in P-Town and picked it up...and nothing happened.

Now for my Billion dollar question:

Why is it that very often a fly fisherman will have to "match the hatch" in terms of size, color, and shape...but the guy chucking Plugs or Red/Black 9" Sluggos next to him has a field day?

Well still depends on whether you got a good gear guy but to me lures work because they have inherent action built in and that can trigger takes. Still even lure guys can get the skunk by not having the right lure.


At least you guys are getting out...I have been in and out of the ER and hospital the past 2 week with kidney stones. The average size of my stones seem bigger this year as well

6/12-6/16 Report

Fished the "Sound" waters along beaches in Popponesset area. Early AM (5ish to 9), PM's (6ish to 9). Never took a 'skunk' but had to work for each and every one I brought to hand. A couple of Blu's that were close to 30", several smaller and one Stripah that exceeded 30" but stripers were in the major minority. Hard fishing from shore. Saw lots of surface activity 100yds+ offshore. Still have not seen birds in any quantity "working" over fish. Maybe up to a couple of dozen but that would be a 'big' flock so far this year. Stripers in the evening and Blus in the morning,for the most part.

Very odd so far.

My favorite UDL has been fishing in the opposite world so far this year, normally at the mouth during the ebb of a predawn tide I'm usually rewarded with a keeper or two, so far it's been dead on the ebb and lights out on the flood. One day last week as the tide started to flood with still a little outward flow the fish were stacked up waiting for enough water to fill in so they could move up. These fish are still keying on big bait, I at first threw my usual creek type flies, small sandeels, shrimp and crab , I had some follows but all resulted in turn aways , for the sake of trying I switched to a 7 " craft fur herring fly, which resulted in many hook ups on the spey.

Sorry to hear Sean.

I have felt that pain once, and that was enough.

I'd add to that, distance of the cast not always so much for where it puts the plug but the amount of time the offering is in the water. When something travels a greater distance or is near the fish for a longer period of time it's more likely that it's gonna get smashed. That's not to say you can't do it with a fly too.

Sean, Sorry to hear about the stones, hope you get over that quick, I hear it's hell.

mother in law was up for her first royal visit, so no fishing

I did get out yesterday though, and an hours fishing reaped half a dozen schoolies on Rays flies and the follow of a big deceiver by a keeper before no-see-ums and lightening chased me off the water.
