well - i'm not sure what is worse. being close to Nirvana but not being able to get out or being far enough away that you can't get out. I guess either way all of hearts and thoughs have us wading the flats for big crusing fish...

Bayside rocked...

CSJ60, my sons, Chris & Brad, had sunlight for a brief time this a.m. Slack low and beginning of incoming, loaded with keeper size bass and nice size sand eel pods. And they would eat! With stable SW winds, fishing should dramatically pickup.

Stop winding us Brits up Guys. Its hard enough as it is. I hope you manage to get a few Guys. Great way to fish. I saw so few fish on the flats in my two weeks. Maybe next year,

Mike

Hey Jim,

You left the Cape too early... what a day. Landed a hand full of small fish, then it happened. All nice fish from 34" to 38" pigs... just fat fish. I did keep a 36" fish for the grill just short of 20 lbs.

A change of locale did the trick.....................................

Craig, thanks for the info. I'll be back in two months and glad you got into big time action. For those wanting to know the locale, it is not a matter of specifics, but a methodology. Sightfishing is a big factor along with mobility.

P.S. Here in the Adriatic Sea, got some intel on bonita fishing. Suffice it to say, wasabe and soy sauce are on the grocery list. Will report later...
