Fish Heartbreak in February

It’s too early in the season for fish heartbreak, but here we are, crying in the club over a missed strike on a salter and a broken off Larry. This mild winter (knock on wood) has kept my waders and gear in the car since the fall run. And I have no plans of ever […]

Weekend Warrior: The Last Waltz

It’s feeling like the end of something. This weekend, we’ll most likely get our last decent weather window to target some buzzer beater stripers. We’ll be out there, but I’m not sure what to expect.   This has been a year of just that. I’m working on a season reflection now, but the patterns of […]

Weekend Warrior: Blowin’ in the Wind

Kinda feels like the end, doesn’t it? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I keep getting the questions. Where are the fish going to be after the storm? Will it blow the migration out to sea? Scatter the bait? Push the concentration of bass from locations North down closer to the Cape? And to […]

Weekend Warrior: Catch the (migration) wave

It’s an albie weekend. Again. We’re going to get some fly albies. Will they cooperate? Probably not. But I’m going to keep trying and trying and trying again until we get one to eat, because that’s the definition of insanity. Is this a wise decision—the decision to ignore our striped friends and a possible season-best […]

Weekend Warrior: A different animal

The fall run is chaotic, fickle, wild, urgent. All of those adjectives and about a million more. Our fishing “runs” are typically predictable. There are patterns and templates to be followed. In the spring, we generally know, within a week or two, when and where the stripers will show up. During the doldrums, we have […]

Weekend Warrior: Monday morning quarterbacking

Well, it happened this week. Every season, there’s a moment you think back on and wish you did something just a little differently. A little Monday morning quarterbacking, if you will. Well, this one hurt. The blitzes this week in the Three Bays were pretty ridiculous, lasting almost two entire tides each day. The fish […]

Miles and miles: The urgency of the Fall Run

We covered some miles this weekend. And we found life almost everywhere we looked. Both days felt very fall-ish, which is not a feeling I can really describe, except to say that the days are getting noticeable shorter, work is getting busier, and the fish (bass blues and bones) are getting hungrier. These conditions do […]

Weekend Warrior: The Run Begins

It may not feel like Fall quite yet, but signs of “The Run” are starting to creep in. But before we talk about what’s to come, let’s go back a bit. A few weeks back, on the new moon of course, big bass came through the canal. Again. This time they were on mackerel. Pretty […]

Weekend Warrior: Chomp Chomp

Well, we’re in the midst of a ridiculous pogie bite all along Cape Cod Bay and up the South Shore; one of the best ones we’ve seen in a very long time. And while this bite has been going on for a few weeks now, I get the feeling the pogies may be shredded and […]
