I hope that the first trip of 2008 is some kind of an omen for the rest of the season.
Brian Baker of NW Connecticut and his group of friends chartered me this morning for my first trip of the season. We caught a record breaking 62 striped bass and 2 bluefish on the 7 hour trip. His guys had so much fun this morning that they want to do it again and booked the same trip for tomorrow morning. We used only light spinning gear and 14 or 15 pound test the whole day. Many times we had 4 fish on at a time and two or three times we had 5 fish on at a time !
I have always waited for the coming of Father's day traditionally for when the bass show up in the Rips near Monomoy, and since it is usually around the 20 th, I might have been a day too late as they bit good yeaterday as well as today. It is now time for the squid blitzes to begin at Bearse's and the shoals nearby. For the next 3 weeks stay tuned for more rip crashin, bass bustin action.
Call 508 255-0911 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a reservation.
Thanks very much,
