What a great day OTW today with EJ , his dad and the boys.  We met in Hyannis early and found an empty parking lot.   Always a nice way to start off.  

We headed out and covered some regular spots and then hit some places you might not expect.   The latter proved to be the golden ticket! 

 

MASSIVE feeds of aggressive albies on BIG bait.  Jumbo pnuts, and 2-3" chovies were being puked all over the RIPTIDE.   

 

The guys even managed to go 3 for 4 on nice sized Spanish Mack's.   

 

We ended the day with a bunch of small blues right in the No Wake zone while we dodged ferry boats.    

 

It's great when the only other boat in sight is the 1 friend I called that was crazy enough to meet me outside the box.  Bob Clancy did solid work with the long rod when he finally got to us.    

 

Great day was had by all.

My guys crushed it on a half day morning charter.   Well over a dozen albies landed.   Two bonito to take home for the grill.   

I was able to figure out a pattern quickly and articulate it to my guys.   They understood and threw lazers at the fish.  It was almost too easy to get the fish to bite today.   Beyond the 15 or so landed we had another 7 or 8 crash the Hogy Lures epoxy jig and miss or pull the hook.    

5/8oz silver epoxy jigs were the only lure we used all morning.  

It's amazing when great conditions, a ton of fish and skilled sports all come together.

There's a woman in RI I met who does very well with a jumpin minnow. Kind of like an albie snax but with trebles 

I fish with her, Her numbers are insane.

i gotta get the jumping minnows out this year.

Can confirm. lol

I've fished next to her on several occasions and she's outfished everyone else just about every time. I usually ask her questions and she's very kind in answering them.

I had taken a four day weekend to fish for these, but had a fairly rough time of it - catching one Spanish mackerel Saturday (in the wind and rain), no funny fish on Sunday (settled for smallish bluefish), 4 Spanish mackerel on Monday and one false albacore on Tuesday. This was doing split time between MA and RI. One Spanish mackerel was decent size while the rest were small (pics below show the range in sizes, with the fly caught being the smallest and the one caught on the x rap being the biggest)...the albie was in RI waters on an albie snax...while it was slow for me, I'm glad the hurricane didn't leave things unfishable and I was able to get something

20+ knot winds this morning, but it was off to the islands early to tow a disabled sailboat. I got back in around noon and headed out for some fish. I found a lot of action, but they were picky, which is very unusual given the sea state. I put up a few fish on fly and spin gear then headed for the dock to give the boat a good rinse.
