Default A Windy Fish Report 09-10-2012

This is a Tale of Two Tides, and fishing both full tides, the outgoing and the incoming.

The plan was to go to Cotuit for the day. My friend Rod called and wanted to try Sandwich but with the wind we opted to meet in Cotuit. When I crossed the Bourne Bridge the water was flat and no sign of wind. He Was coming down over the Sagamore. I called him and told him I was not seeing any wind and to meet me in Sandwich and if it was bad we could go to Cotuit from there.

The wind was blowing but we decided to give it a go and as the day went on the wind increased in velocity the entire day. The fish were there so we decide to stay.

When we started we picked up some fish in the 20 inch bracket, he said "It would be nice to get a 24" fish today". As soon as he said it , Bang I was on and into my backing and I said to him "Want to see One". The fish did measure 24".

He asked me what I got the fish on and I told him a P. O. S fly. He asked what that was and I told him it was a "Piece of S***" fly. He guessed it it was one he gave me right of the bat.

The fish today were eating everything we threw at them for the most part and Rod figured we would have a 50 fish day. We did that on the outgoing tide and then some and still planned on fishing the the incoming.

The first two hours of the incoming produced a lot of fish and I was close to 50 fish at that point without Rod's total. I don't know what he ended up with because he disappeared and I figured he wimped out and went home early.

The middle two hours of the incoming were dead and then things started to pick up again. At that point I decided to try a fly that I had tied but never used and wanted to see how it worked.

The fly was a 60 degree Jiggy Chartreuse and Yellow Clouser. I wanted to see what the hooking abilities were with this fly and I was extremely impressed with the fly and now will use it without any reservation.

In the end it was a 12 hour and worth every minute. The fish ranged from 12 to 27" with most in the 20 to 22 inch bracket and a fair number over the 22 inch bracket. There was also a good number of times when we were doubled up and I would say that the double up happened at least 20 times. The other good thing is we had the place to ourselves for the most part all day long.
