No. Shore

Finally back on the water last night after all the reports of bait around (thanks Lefty ). Launched my kayak into the FAC bay and paddled right into the thick of it a few times, with sporadic feeding from when I got there at 6 til dark. Some boils were as big as bathtubs others were definitely schoolie sized. I've never seen bass doing Orca Whale jumps, but the clouds of Peanut Bunker (~1-2") got them going crazy. I saw flips, rolls, tail slaps, all from about 5 feet away in the Kayak. Amazing. No one else around either. The bait clouded the bottom when I was over it. So much that it was hard to get a take. You could see the bass milling around on the bottom, following the fly, but not touching it.

Finally I got one small fish to hit, but gave some slack so he would come loose. After nawing off some of the bucktail on my fly (forgot the knife/scissors in the truck) to get it down to the right size I finally got a solid strike. Fly line zipped out through the guides, then the thump thump thump of the backing connection. Bigger fish than the rest. A sleigh ride later, I boated a nice 32" fish.

All told, I had a few 20-26" fish and this nice 32" one.

So moral of story is there are no fish on the North Shore, and definitley no keepers.

Nick

Nick...
Nice report!
I've employed the PGS (PenguinGoSlack) method to produce several rewarding AC (AutoCull) results this year...Lewis Bay was/is still my personal best...

Nice report, Nick.

Sounds like this made up for the tough going in Chatham this weekend!

I've gotta get a yak....

Good report Nick.. are you going to avoid Chatham... I do think things will get better just as soon as the mung leaves South Beach and the rest of the area...maybe the Monomoy flats fish will become more bold... I ordered my Yak toy and will use it at North.

Nick,

Looks like I should have made the long drive last night.

I am glad that you did well.

Talk to you soon.

No I'll still be heading to Chatham. Haven't completely crossed it off yet. But there was something about catching some fish amongst the rocks!

Mike, defintely worth the drive, but I have a feeling with the amount of PB around, you don't really need to drive that far!

Things quieted down this am for a prework clave. We had Grego, Marvin, Meself, and John R. in attendance. Good gathering but the bait stayed out of reach and seemed dispersed by the storm a bit.

Terry - nice job on the outing with your son, I'm sure it's something the two of you will always remember.

In case you hadn't figured it out yet, Striblue is more then a little upset with HIS Chatham fish being on the North SHore. Word on the street is that he hired an old whaling gypsy to put a curse on your waters and send the fish back to the land of skinny water.

I hope for your sake this morning wasn't proof of the gypsy's abilities.

I am not going to say anything, except that those North Shore reports from Lefty are extremely annoying.

I hate to remind you of this but the last 2 seasons the Cape seem to just shut off first while the North Shore lingered on sputtering into almost November. It seems the fish pass the cape and go directly to Rhodey or something. Problem is finding them. When you do it's great. But it takes a few outings to cash in. John, I got to take you to Marblehead in October this year. And then there's always Tunoids in Rhodey:eyecrazy:
You gotta be a tramp like me who will fish in any area regardles of my image.

Hmmm.. I wonder if the big fat skunk I saw at 4:30 am had a bering on the fishing this am. I thinkso.

Terry, I will take you up on that... My Cape fishing will be limited because of Family comittments....but nothing would interfere with early morning or some evening North shore trips since I am just down the road on Rt128.

Seeing as the tin minnow has to travel to/through Salem, any chance a shore bound Salem guy can hook a ride on one of these trips?
