Assuming that Stiper Season Begins on Tax Day, like it did last year in RI (Right Ray?); we have 103 days to go. Seventy of which are work days; thirty are weekend days & three are Holidays (including Patriots day, which falls on April 15th this year). Happy 2002!

Time will Fly..

I am on a different timer, it's 235 days before I get to the East coast...
BUT
I am fishing the Bow tomorrow, temperature should be about +8 Celsius (that's about 42F)
AND
I have been killing perch for the past 3 weeks on a local lake where someone nasty dumped some in the lake which only has Rainbows. Caught 76 one day and made fish cakes with the filets.
There are too many perch and they breed like wildfire, so much so that the trout have been starving. The only way to control them is to harvest them. At least I eat them..

Glad to see that I'm not the only one counting the days, although it's earlier here in Connecticutt. And yes, the daylight is growing longer.....

Update!

We are now at 78 Days:

54 -- Work Days
22 -- Weekend Days
2 -- Holidays (2/18 & 4/15)

Today, the Sun rose @ 07:00 & will set @ 16:51, so we are at +43 minutes from the Solstace!

Good topic. Earliest really great day I've had on the Cape was April 11, I think it was 1995 or 1996. The fish just came in to the mouth of Bass River in a giant horde. Small fish in the softwater, bigger fish in the fast current during the dropping tide. Small sand eels everywhere but the larger bass were looking for adult herring up inside the river systems. Couldn't do anything wrong and even found some big spring bass up inside the estuaries up the coast a few miles to the west taking large juvies that evening.

My experience (and frequently fished locations) don't get what you'd call "reliable" until May. It's great to see the days getting longer!

Just checked the tide table's for Patriots/Tax day - low at 8:20 in Hyannisport thus about 9:30 at Bass River and slack water about 45 minutes later way up river. I was thinking about shaking off the winter blues and rust with a yak float down and back about that time. Get a little exercise, pick off a holdover twinkie or two - anybody interested?

Did anybody get a load of the Memorial Day weekend tides?
