Orlean. Beautiful morning but no fish.

Optimistically checked out a few spots in Orleans area Sunday morning. Started deep in sheltered part of Little Pleasant Bay. Sunrise, at the top of the flood, water was like glass. Zero wind. Picture postcard morning, but no bait or fish.

Moved to coves inside Nauset Harbor. Tide was starting to move out to Nauset Inlet. Saw a couple of groups of 5 or 6 birds diving. Couldn't get close enough to see what they were eating, but the bait looked to be a bout 1 - 2 inches long.

Checked out Nauset Beach up to the Inlet. John, the birds were there again. Hundreds of birds sitting in what used to be the deep channel off the point (now very shallow). Occasionally groups of 6 - 8 would start diving at the same small bait I saw inside. Still could not get close enough to see the bait up close. Anyone have any ideas?

As others have said, Nauset Beach has transformed from last year. Parts of the channel filled in, parts of the beach drop steeply from the high water mark, and then extend out flat for some distance. Should be fun exploring the "new" outer beaches this year.

Are they selling non-res permits at the entrance this year? Thanks in advance and I look forward to hitting the beach with you again this year.

Are you going to be around the weekend of May 19-20?

Non-res permits go on sale today at the entrance. Weds - Sun 9 - 3:30. I'll email you some specifics.

Unfortunately, I have several family events going on the weekend of May 19-20 so I won't be able to attend the Clave. Really dissappointed, but I may take the 18th as a vacation day, head down late Thurs night and stay as long as I can until late Friday or early Sat. At least I'll be able to do some scouting for you guys. Would be happy to take people out on the beach Friday if there's interest.
