VHF Channel?

Have you guys picked a VHF channel to operate on? I have a charter and Sunday and would be happy to report any activity I run into as I head in your direction from about 10 miles east (where the crowds are much lighter).

Guys working the shore may do well on the washburn Jetty at Waquoit and along the beach at the end of the Jetty. On Wednesday it would have been easy to catch albies and some nice bass from those locations. Crease flies and white 6 inch slug-gos were the ticket.

RE:VHF Channel?

Thanks for the great report Steve. I'm not sure what the boat owners prefer for channels though. Hopefully some will respond to this thread.

Capt. Steve,

Not sure we have chosen a channel to monitor for the weekend yet. Let us know which one you might be listening on and I'll give you a call Sunday morning and let you know where we are. Will you be in Slamdance I or II??

I'll monitor ch. 78 and will hail NE Bay when I find the fish. I'll also have a cell phone with me (508) 631-7506

Steve,

Thanks for picking a channel, I'm never sure which ones are clear & under-utilized.

I can be hailed as LOGO-1.

Good Luck.

RE:VHF Channel?

Steve -

Thanks for the long-distance guidance during Boneclave weekend... we were thinking about Lackey's, the Vineyard, etc. after loading all our gear on the island campsite. It was kind of a late start (8:00 - 8:30?) so we hailed you to see what you had to say.

Crackle...hiss..."3 albies and a spanish"...crackle.

Did you hear that? He's already been into four exotics, and we were just getting started. When we asked for further clarification... hiss... crackle.... "east".

Did he say "east"? Sounded like it. Yeah he did! We agreed, "east" as the man says. Ruben hit the gas and several miles later we were into birds, acrobatic spanish macks and a hard running rip. Ruben set us up perfectly for the first drift and I was happy to experience a first cast hookup! Just like that the clave was underway.

Fishing is full of superstitions and inspirations. You may not have known it but you ended up setting the pace for our daily raids on the incoming rips to the east.

best regards,

Juro

Steve,
Hmmm...."3 albies and a spanish".....no idea.....

That's what we thought we heard... if you were on the channel maybe you could clarify what was said (vs. what we heard). Whatever was really said didn't matter to us, we went east with the notion of exotics and that's what we found.

But now you got my curiosity...

RE:VHF Channel?

Doug,

Can't confirm whether 6" white sluggos work, but I've had good success with 4.5" and 3" sluggos in the alewife and Arkansas shiner colors. I picked up some 3" white sluggos and gave those a try with only minimal success -- one fluke and one tail-hooked Spanish mack (was it fleeing from my lure?) When I saw one of the sand eels swimming on the surface I thought that my 3" Arkansas shiner sluggos were a perfect match. The fish thought so too, as they ate almost the whole package.

Juro,
If you are talking last Sunday...Sept.10...I had the priviledge of being ON Mr. Moore's boat...
I was having so MUCH fun, I really did not pay attention to his VHF hails and cell phone calls!
I do recall him telling someone to head east...
Doug

RE:VHF Channel?

Quentin,
I'm only kidding about the white Sluggos! Mr. Moore swears by them...though he has a new lure in his possession!
I thought this was a fly fishing board!
( I'm kidding again....I have a very difficult time putting my spinning rods down.) Usually post spinning rod reports on one of the other boards...out of respect for Mr. Mukai.

RE:VHF Channel?

Sorry guys, I saw the word "sluggo" and got all excited . . . Finally saw something I know a little bit about :-}

I did think twice about posting it because I know this board is supposed to be about flyfishing. Hey, wait a minute . . . I seem to recall seeing a post (a long, long time ago on a board far, far away) about casting three inch sluggos on a fly rod. There, now it's about flyfishing ;-]

BTW, seeing you guys in action at the Boneclave has really gotten me hooked this time (please forgive the cliche). I'm definitely getting myself a salty flyrodding set-up. Even if I cant cast it, I can always go down to the stone pier or the Wacky jetty and dangle a sluggo in the water ZZZZZZZZZZZzzZzZzzzzzzZZZzzzzzZZZ

Quentin -

Sorry I did not remember to do a quick casting lesson at the clave. In retrospect the beach would have been a great spot to do it. Let's plan on getting together ASAP. Do you work anywhere near Waltham?

RE:VHF Channel?

I think it was around 08:30 or 09:00 when I first heard Logo-1 being hailed and tried to call you guys over. By that time Doug had indeed landed 3 albies and 1 spanish mackerel (which hit the rail and plopped back into the water). The action was hot along Craigville and then right outside Centerville River until about 10:30 when it sort of shut down. There were still plenty of fish around, but not like it had been when we first got out at 06:30 and by that time there were 25 boats in the area.

Glad to hear you guys headed east and found them on your way, and I'm sorry we didn't run into any of you while we were out there. Sounds like east is the way to go this weekend too.
