Whine, Whine, Whine!

Things are awfully quite here.

Depending on who you listen to, looks like a front passin thru Friday night, just in time to throw a wet towel on the weekends fishing. Looks like a high off to the NW in Canada that'll give us a nice breeze out of the NE and east. Just ducky! Going to have to think about taking one of these mid week bluebird days off if this weather pattern persists.

But the tides are nice and if the winds are reasonable I'm gonna focus on the bayside. So what's everyone else doing?

Think positive.

...if it doesn't kill you it will make you stronger...

Fred...'Waiting to hear from the Right Honourable Doc Duprey coming in from NJ to annoy fish...Probably find our way to the light house early and then catch the Rip-Rider to do the inside...
Like you said, "good tides"...but that weatherrr pattern has my attention! Go figure?!

If it makes you guys feel any better you should know that I met a few fishing pals as I was driving off of the causeway last weekend and they fished South Beach last Saturday (incredibly snotty with big winds and big surf) and they did pretty well.

You will never catch fish if you do not go fishing. Words of wisdom from a man that will be busy moving this weekend - so take my words with a grain of salt.

And I did not fish last Saturday either. I wimped out!

Talking

Fred I know what you mean about the weather and all. Went out with my friend last weekend and he got a fish in*that nasty weather.The skunk is on me so*bad I can't come in the house its that bad. The season started off great then nada. When this happens I wonder why I don't trout fish more often. But I'm not going to give up I'll beat this saltwater fishing . Hope to see you on the water and maybe we can yak and pig out to make up for these slow days.

Fred,

The Tides look good up around the N. Shore, so I will be fishing closer to home over the Long Weekend.

I just as soon not do a lot of Traveling on a Holiday weekend anyways.

Let us know how you do. Is that Invite to hit your home waters still open, cause I'm really interested & think it would be fun?

Cool Whine, whine, whine...perhaps a nice Cabernet?

Gentlemen,

If the folks at Weather.Com are to be believed, things don't look so bad, at least for Saturday. Don't know for certain, but it's good enough to face the drive from NJ. Besides, isn't this supposed to build character?

Seriously, I hope to get the chance to meet and fish with at least some of you, and begin to learn the ropes of fishing on the Cape. It has been said that a bad day of fishing beats a good day of working. I want to know what's a bad day of fishing?

Pete (Penguin), I PM'ed you last night, and will call this evening to confirm.

Best regards,

Doc

Grego -

50/50 I'll be stuck working around the house on Sat & Mon (prep for a big family shindig). I am trying to get my wife to be irresponsible like me and just head down the cape for the whole weekend

I am booked for a wade trip down the Cape on Sunday (weather permitting) but I might be shooting up to the North Shore for a morning sortie one of those two "housework" mornings if I do I will drop you and the Joppa gang a line.

Early morning lows, big minus tides... predawn at the mouth on Monday sounds like a winner.

Juro,

Since the low at the mouth will be pretty packed with people, I am thinking of going to a different mouth just for varitey. Hey a flushing estuary full of sandeels is a flushing estuary full of sandeels. Let me know the night before if you plan to come up. If I can squeeze it in I will.

Looks like I'll be able to get out early all three mornings. Outer beaches if the weather's good, inside water somewhere if weather's not so good. Looking forward to crossing paths with who ever's out there this weekend.

John and Pete, I think I'll join you guys for the light and the flood at South Beach. Not sure I'll make 4:00 am though. I'll have to bail at noon though.

Grego - How bout the 9th. Fish the bottom of the drop then the flood.

Terry/Juro:

I had a talk with JohnR last evening about the great Tides & Holiday on Monday & we're thinking about some alternate locations to avoid the Mayhem; the question is South or North?

BTW: the front beach was a Twinky-fest til dusk. At dark, when we expected to see some bigger fish, it Just Died. I think this may bode well for the Hampton/Rye crew?
