Bayside water temps a little cooler this past weekend...

Cool water (mid-50's), snotty weather, and plenty of bait in the water meant lots of healthy bright stripers on the bayside this past weekend. Enjoyed a multi-legal morning with Hawkeye and Roop, all of us had lots of fish to wrestle with.

With July coming in a few days who knows how long it will hold up. Now that I mentioned it I'll bet it's all over ;-)

Anyway, the point is that I noticed the water was much cooler than typical on a late June day - especially on the flats. I assume this is because the flats are strongly affected by the sun, and there was a lack of that.

I wonder also if the wind pulls cold water to the shore - it was a very hard south wind on Sat am... I wonder if that turns the water over to pull the cold water like a pulley toward the shore?

I noticed that the surface temps around Duxbury / Plymouth stay colder than surrounding areas thru first half of summer, and the winds are prevailing SW. It kind of implies that the lee of the wind can get cooler water temps somehow.

I could be all wrong but something to think about.

SKUNKED!!!

No crabs!

No anchors!!

No conchs!!!

My performance paled in comparison to that of Mssrs. Estey & Mukai. What a great day, shorts, wading jacket, 75* & the rain was like fishing in a car wash!

Verry, verry, glad I didn't try to go back to sleep when I heard the rain at 3:00 AM.

Thanks Gregg & Juro.

Roop

Yes, thanks Gregg -

I could have never spent time in the heat of the flood out on that shoal without you there to pick me up in the nick of time. It was exhilarating having keeper bass all around me and each time I hooked up the ones that were all around me kept me as excited as the one I had on!

It was great sitting down and having a cold summer ale at lunch to celebrate a hard fishing day in rough weather with two good friends, and those fish were absolutely gorgeous. I hope the pictures do them justice.

Those waypoints should serve you well for many years to come!

Truly a great day despite what some would call nasty weather. It was great having you guys along. The stories, laughs, and learning were just the right ingredients to add to some good fishing.

Here's a couple pics.

Juro gets the first fish O' the day. Any surprise there?

The first fish as it loses it's battle with Juro.

That was an awesome time, but wait till you go out with the sun in your favor!

As a matter of fact, tomorrow's tides will run fast and hard and the timing will let you sleep in or take care of a few morning chores before the flood (10.3 ft range to -0.9 low!!!). The sun will be high and the water's still cool. You will see hordes of shadows on the flats, it will be an epic day to be there!

I would give up a vacation day from next week to be there tomorrow...

Gregg, what do you think?

Sorry about the late reply but in any case it would not have worked out. Duty calls and I had to answer.
