  1. This is the best fishing report I have ever read. You are one tough SOB Dick. not sure any of us would be able to come back that quickly, mentally or physically. very happy that you were able to get out and get some casts in with good friends before the end of the season. what a bonus you got some fish and Rich got his bonito.
  2. sounds like a lot of people catch em blind casting which has me thinking, hasanyone caught an albie at night? i know they feed by sight but plenty of fish feed at night and i'm assuming they are seeing the bait they eat. is it becuase albies only use sight and not smell, lat line, etc as effectively as other fish and their eyesight isn't made for night time?
  3. These two are my favorite
  4. hook, mono thread, BT, Laserdub, craft fur, eyes, solarez, fish!
  5. ditto on the importance of a good reel over everything else. well that and a good hook and clean leader.
  6. Hahah could not agree with you more on this. Happened at least twice this weekend. "OK reel in, let's go check out XYZ" and then water erupts 30ft from the boat for 20 seconds, gone. cast for another half hour, same thing. silly fish
  7. Was out Saturday with two buddies as well and agreed for the most party everyone in the fleet was very well behaved in the morning, which was great. WIsh more days were like that. Guess it depends on the fish as they seemed to be pretty spread out. Can't speak for how it went after it slowed down at slack as I had to get dropped off.
  8. The night before an early morning fishing trip is my favorite. Going through gear, picking out flies, planning tides if I haven't done that already, texting with buddies on where to meet, checking out the wind, picturing what you think the sunrise is gonna look like. I love the anticipation. But also, wet wading and sight fishing to stripers is the best thing in the world.
  9. I believe it was August 30th last year the first reports came in, at least on SOL. I'm sure others hear earlier reports, as I did this year. Like rst3 said, Sept 15th will be a good telling. I could care less about the start of albie season, I'm always much more concerned with the end of albie season. let's hope it goes as long as last year.
  10. Welcome to the Matrix.
  11. I'm heading out there in October Mark, when are you going?
  12. That’s assuming 1500 people fish the derby who don’t live there are on island every day. Seems like a lot. I’ve only fished it last year and only stayed on the island a week. I’m guessing that is more typical for majority of people.
  13. let's say a modest 1500 of the entrants each spend $50 total for one day of the derby, that's $75,000 going to the island in someway.
  14. My time on the water is very very limited now with a baby at home and one on the way, so I like to plan ahead and look at the tides and try to game plan what dates might work. then, if nothing else is planned and weather is cooperating, I will fish hard and try to make the most of it. wind plays a HUGE part of where I go, as I'm sure it does for all, so sometimes the tide you looked at two weeks ago for spot A is blown out and you have to go to spot B and hope there's fish. I need do some better scouting and find two spots on each side of the cape that will fish just as good on the same tide so I can escape the wind when needed.
