Do you have any fond memories of some of the south Cape beaches? These lower than normal water temps have those rusty wheels of mine turning...

Ya, I do. Around '65 I use to fish the back pond -- Waquoit Bay -- with live eels on the rise and do quite well, better actually than the guys in my club fishing Nauset. Then the local tribe started charging us for access, creating problems and we went elsewhere.

I would also eye-ball the Canal. Hey, by now the Outer Cape water will be warm enough. I heard even jersey surf is cold. (Fishing, man is this a boring subject.)

Back in April the Jersey surf was waaaaa below normal. Now it's just perfect with all the cows being landed I think I have a list of some of the more classic south cape beaches somehwere beneath the beer bottles. The only thing that's gonna stop me from hitting the Outer Cape will be a lack of 4wd. Hmmmm... decisions...

This is our Bass Moon Downside which I always look forward to. But when I got up last night, the rain was bouncing. With photography a big part of what we do, there is no point in fishing in the rain. Also fog screws up the flash for pix. Everything is related, so you have to know when to throw them onto the table and fold. (I wonder how red stockings would be)

No objection to the photo work of Frank D during bikini season, at least from me

Rich, you know what Momma J says? "He's so full of prunes".

I illustrate surfcasting, which means I shoot at night. Ain't too many thongs during the mid-watch in places we go (and I'm getting tired of looking)
