I saw my first terns absolutely pounding the baitfish today at work. I am thinking the warm temps the next couple days will turn it on..

As they say "Hope springs eternal", hope it pays off.  At $6.00 a gal,it doesn't make a lot of sense to just go driving around an empty ocean for boaters.  LOL  BTW most boats get about 2or 3 mi per gallon. I'm thinking hoofing it may be better.

Last Monday evening saw clouds of sand eels on the out going just south of Portland.  Went to a certain York County spot on Wednesday- deader than her love for me.  Last night south of Portland- stinkin easterly and incoming.  In the words of RAW- the cigar was good.  Headed to the Cape on Sunday for 5 days.

Far cheaper for sure. More wear and tear on the body though, with more injury risk espec on rocks. There are trade offs for everything, so I guess it depends on which ones you can live with.

Frankly boating fuel  costs are almost a rounding error when it comes to the cost of a boat. Boats make no sense when it comes to cost, that's why I own 3 of them LOL

True. Only a house may be a bigger money pit. :D

What it costs for fuel to get my boat to the ocean and back is considerably more than what I spend on the water in fuel. I also don't seem to care as much when on the water since it was the mission / event that I enjoy. Guess I need to move closer to the ocean (planned).

First fish of the season today was a respectful 27 3/4. I hope this isn't like the first-cast-fish curse.

Fish #'s 2&3. Both over 28. #3 was fat! Both safely released. Strange year.

Probably the same year class of fish that were around 25 inches last year, nice to see they made it back should be a fun season. I caught very few fish less than 20 inches last year. A guy from Connecticut I spoke with a few weeks ago was saying they were getting lots in the upper 20 inch range as well.

Great morning yesterday- 7 landed 22-26" and lost a cow that ran me way into the backing.  The Crouser is King.

Crouser? Is that  a typo? I only ask because some flies out there or their variants have weird names.
