The Cape and Monomoy.

I will be going down there for the weekend. What sorts of flys and lines are you folks useing.
Waders? Any other indespensibles. I know that this stuff has been written about again and again, so I don't expect a treatise, just what's been working as of late. Thanks, Eddie.

Waders - yes. Cold nights and cooling waters, possible rain on Sat.

Bait right now is bunker, sand eel, and silverside in that order. Flies I fish are sand eel, bunker and silverside, in that order.

Flats are different - lots of grass shrimp, crabs, sand eels, and the bunker are running around over the shoals as well. I watched hundreds of bass ignoring the bunker (only one eruption) on the flats last weekend as they fed on shrimp. They took sand eel flies best though.

Depends on the venue...

back beaches vs. flats vs. estuaries vs...

People who fish with me might say that I use a sand eel pattern once in a great while. }>
