It started out gloomy and drizzly with a cold northeasterly breeze that eventually died out to a nice sunny day for fishing. I had some freinds from the Goose Hummock shop with me today, one of which somehow got nicknamed the "Boomer". Hence the title of this report. At the mooring in Chatham we saw fish boiling on the surface as we headed out. Pleasant Bay is loaded with fish right now - fish when or where the tide is running strong. My charter had plenty of the PB experience the day beforeand were looking for more adventure. In the channel between Monomoy Island and North Beach we found a school of small fish tucked against a peat bank, small though. we found sporadically breaking fish in the channel between Morris Island and the entrance to Stage Harbor. Running south, down towards the Monomoy tip we found small pods of breaking bluefish in the 2-3 pound class and had some fun with them. I even hooked a couple of just under legal sized bass out of the blues. We still hadn't caught a fish large enough to take home, so we continued down towards the "Point rip" but the tide had slowed too much for it to be fishable. The boys wanted to try their wire rods that they brought insisting that, "if going to a fight, bring more than just a knife." Well they caught a 37 inch broud shouldered striper with that wire and jig outfit and many small ones, so it took the edge off a slow period and put a keeper on my boat which I was grateful for. As we headed for home along the east side of the island, we fished at Bearses rip and caught several nice fish releasing them exept for the biggest one of the day (caught by the Boomer) a nice 40 inch bass!
