    The fishing has been really good, didn’t think I’d want to be going at it as hard as I have been. Slots around every almost every night and often during the day. Congrats on that 40’’er, great fish for May. I lost a pretty nice one about a week ago when my (stupidly-light) leader got sliced on some shellfish, thinking it was mid 30’’ range.

    Not sure if I can make this evening work but I try to fish every weeknight when I can. I’ll send ya a pm soon.

    Thinking the slots are the 2015 class

    I’ll be heading up to NH tomorrow afternoon, going out this evening after work if you stay around. Should stay good for at least a few days, looks like the onshore wind pattern will hold. Maybe next week?

    The fishies are here in Salem/Beverly. Lots of fish on the flats in the 20’s with a few bigs mixed in. No issues finding them a couple hours on either side of the low. Both intermediate and floaters are being used. Mostly brown clousers with pearl and chartreuse/ brown combo working too. Midweek I am available to bring folks to the fishies.
    A woman reported to police at 6:30 p.m. that she was being "smart-mouthed."

    Getting super excited for my trip. Found my old fly tying stuff from high school. I dabble in squirmy worms and midges but don’t invest in anything. Managed to whip up two clousers and a half and half which I screwed up but still looks a little fishy.

    Just finished fishing off the coast of Montauk.
    It was pretty great, except for the part about heading out at 4:00am.
    Caught our limit of Striped bass and sea bass. These two were too big and had to go back.

    fkna! those are some pigs!

    speaking of Montauk, if anyone needs a guide hookup one of my buddies growing up runs a fly fishing charter out there for whatever’s in season (stripers, blues, false albies, etc)… they clean up pretty well. Windward Outfitters, ask for Peter

    Not personally located on the Cape, but there should be Bluefish and Striped Bass around, and I believe the first wave of False Albacore just showed up.

    Finished the season up this past weekend. Fished my dick off, landed a personal best from shore (53” 54#) many other large fish, pretty good consistency, and a lot of hours. My best year overall despite a tough wind and upwelling for all July
