I have not posted my report here in a week or more because I didnt want to be hounded with frustrated anglers that havent been able to find em. But now that it has been a week or so that the fish have definatley moved in the deeper waters to the east of Chatham and can be found on the bottom in 50 to 80 feet of water. There are schools of Bass holding tight to the bottom and they can be caught with the light tackle by jigging the Fin-S and Sluggo baits up andf down off the bottom. ( If you use the heavy stuff and umbrellas, you should be ashamed and switch over to the light stuff as son as you can.) If you find your own school with the sounder you will be better off than by "looking for the boats". There has been fog, dogfish, bluefish and wind as well as cold watewr one day and hot water the next. You will earn every one you can find believe me. There are some good fish in the 40 to 42 inch range mixed in with the smaller 32 inchers if you can stay on them. What some folks have said this week :
thanks so much for the awesome trip. Tim and Dave were talking about it for days afterwards and definitely want to do it again. The whales, seals, basking sharks were great to watch–and we caught fish too! More than we could or would want to take home. Listening to the guys over the radio who got skunked made the day seem even better. We'll spread the word and see you again. Thanks. Brian & Robin
