New arrivals

Time to check out some of your favorite spots. Looks like ther has been a surge of new arrivals over the past 4-7days along the south coast. Mid-sound rips and vineyard waters are heating up with any moving water holding fish on structure.
News from Chatham indicate that fish are finally moving into the rips out front. This should improve opportunities on the ocean-facing beaches with warmer water and resident fish.....

Bob -

It's always been my belief that fronts (like one we just had) cause fish to promote where they are in the migration. Certainly in the fall they clear out of a spot then. Do you think this might have been the case here?

(We may never really know but it might be a good anecdote to track as a group over the years)

Thanks for the news flash, now I will never be able to concentrate at work!


This probably means that the point rip will be schmokin'

interesting thought, the P-R was so inconsistant last year that I frankly haven't even given it a thought yet... hmmm. Bruce and I checked in yesterday and he was fishing Bearses with his first consistant action of the year. He said the water temps were varying from 48 - 50* to 56* depending on the direction of the tide.
I'd be thinking West side flats for the next week.

Makes you wonder..WHERE are they arriving from? Do they hold offshore near shoals and then move in when conditions warrant? OR are they from S. Carolina?

A good guess is they sit outside in deeper, calmer water along with the baitfish, until the crap blows over, warmer water returns because there's no cloud cover and currents can heat up. Pressure systems evidence themselves sooner than we experience the effects; they feel it, head for the safety of the slower moving currents and lay low. This same scenario played itself out last year, but everything seemed to stay outside from about this time period on; bait didn't come back in, much, either.
