Pray for a break!!

Reports of 20+ foot waves hitting the coast bring a lot of potential for a through-way from the atlantic into the soundside refuge waters, creating a revival of the 'good ol days'. Who knows what will happen but...

Juro.....Garry and I talked aboutthat yesterday....a new break, that stayed open would definetly be prayers answered. There's a nice low spot almost directly in front of the look out bench at Morris....deep water both sides....if it happens I think that is where it will occur.

Lets hope this is the case. I have yet to fish this year save a short few hours in the head waters of the Hudson river this summer. My arm is improving and I think if I can get it together I may make a sortie down to the cape. Strictly for metal health reasons
I am going to go out Bass fishing Sunday for several hours. We will see how things hold up with my hand gripping strength.

John, keep us posted on your observations. With the spring tides this weekend and the projected wave heights, something is going to fill in or open up on Nauset/South Beach. Keep safe. See you at the end of the month.

Lots of mid-sized blues at the lighthouse on the ebb, good fun on the fly with a bite tippet and the blackened filet for dinner was primo last night. Off to dig some clams... and maybe pick up a good fluke on the south side flood tide (fingers crossed).

The washline was barely 50 yards from the steps at lighthouse beach this am, so I suspect the big moon tide + shift to east wind + storm waves will at least wash over at the previous "guzzle" location and hopefully a whole lot more.

Maybe a new mecca, changes at big girl, as well as serious bowlage on the outer beaches for awhile and lots of tinker macs are around this summer in the Chatham area.

Juro, after tomorrow's high tide, since you have a license, take a bucket, walk the beaches, and you should have all the scallops you need. Get there before the gulls.

Stopped at Outermost Harbor about 1:30 PM to check on my boat and one of thier captains told me that the surf was washing over at one of thier regular landing spots and possibly a few other spots. There was heavy fog so I couldn't see any thing from the marina but the surf sounded very loud.

Tried to get a parking spot at the light house but gave up due to the traffic jam. Looked too foggy to see more than a couple of hundred feet anyway.

Then we tried Nauset beach but the parking lot was closed because the surf was running right up to the dunes. Again it was too foggy to see the water from the entrance gate. Will try Naust beach again later.

Ditto at Cahoons Hollow. My sons and friends went today to hang out at the Beachcomber and they were not allowed on the beach and said the fog was so thick they could see nothing even being that close, high on the bluff. I will head out early tomorrow morn to the refuge and avoid the lighthouse.

CNN, WBZ, etc were camped out at the parking let sending live feed via satellite. Bonehead drivers were doing 10-pt turns in opposite directions blocking passage.

I went out to dig a few quahogs to make some stuffers and the surf sound was tremendous although I couldn't see anything through the fog. I'm going to walk down this afternoon - clearing expected later. Tuesday is supposed to be fantastic so I'll walk down SB with a camera and flyrod and post any interesting pics.

Checked the outer beach out from the overlook at the Refuge and could see at least two wash overs but no sign of any break. But it was still hazey so couldn't tell for sure on the distant one.

Also managed to snag a parking spot at the lighthouse at about 9 AM and although it was still hazey it looks like there was some changes to the bar at the outer end of the inlet.

Parking at the lighthouse was a zoo. Cars were backed up in both directions.

Storm was pretty much a fizzle here in Dennis. Sun is breaking out and I'm thinking maybe I'll go to work from here in the am rather than an early escape. Took a ride down to Chatham with company late afternoon yesterday. What a zoo at the light. From the refuge the surf sounded pretty awesome.

My guess is it will take a longer duration event ot a direct hit to have a permanent impact along SB.

Fourteen footers yesterday along the South County beaches. All parking areas mobbed with surfer watchers. Fishing and catching is picking up nicely here.

Walked a few miles down to see the washovers, but no sign of breaks. Not even sure if the washovers will 'guzzle' on subsequent tides but one can only hope.

Epic scenery though.
