It is Labor day today, things will start to slow down for me now. Fishing this last week has been slower than the blitz like conditions of August, but there are plenty of 38 to 40 inch fish being caught. Here is a run down of the last weeks activities. I have had my rescheduled trips from weather and a break down this last weekend, and both the Kearney and Massachusetts Bowhunters Association charters benefitted fish wise. Blackbeard's bait and tackle in Eastham sent me a charter on Tuesday that we really had to work for. I had to fight off the dogfish and the wire trollers most of the day, eventually taking 8 or 10 decent bass. The next day I went for greener pastures with the two charters from General Electric. We had the rips to ourselves and caught many, many large stripers in the 36-38 inch category and eventually releasing a nice 33 pound 42 inch fish. In addition we tied into a nice bonita and sent it home for Peter, who couldn't make the trip. Friday I went back to the same spot with Dave, his comments are in the preceding report. In the afternoon, the Harman party from the Chatham Bars Inn had awsum fishing at Bearses' rip with sand eels. We caught fish on every drift and every one was a commercial keeper ! This weekend found me back at the spot that has been so good to me this year, a mile or two south of the Chatham "C" bouy, where we caught about 25 or 30 fish on each charter. Mixed in are the inevitable dogfish and a few blues, but some really nice up to 40 inch bass. I am going back for more on this morning's trip.
I hope to see you there.
