    Great day in MA 13, got some spunky rezzies and some peace and quiet while everyone watched the game. Hit it around 9am and the low turned around at about noonish, all the action was all on the ebb.
    Mark Mercers Squimp® was the fly of the day.

    Whoa....way to go, Dave! Good on ya!!! :D

    That's awesome and you must have your mojo goin' on with a report/pic like that!

    It's gotta be cool to find some fishy joy on a day when Hawks fans went from dejected to hopeful to excited to elated and to dejected again!!! :cool:

    Dave, it sounds like you were the smart one, hit the beach on a nice day and forget the game....I should have done that as well. Glad to here you found some cooperative rezzie's.

    Absolutely! I'm not normally off on a weekend day so I was prepared for the crowds...but alas, the only other creatures out and about were Seagulls and Kingfishers, definitely a bonus day :)
    The Squimp was spot on as well and I was pretty stoked :) Gonna tie up a few more of your gems before tomorrow.

    I was varying it but found slow, erratic twitching and short strips got the most attention.

    Totally!

    Seriously cold, I had to hop in the van and warm up the core and fingers several times, and finally called it when I stopped seeing action and just couldn't take the numb fingers :)

    EJ-
    Is this a pattern you fish on a faster sinking tip? Or just intermediate? I've never used one before. I want to tie some tonight.

    Eyejuggler,
    Nice work on the resident coho.

    DP,
    Don't over think things. The resident coho are very aggressive.........

    Used a floater yesterday, but normally use an intermediate. I was playing with poppers prior so I kept the line on :)

    My biggest learning is to try a bit, observe and move on if there is no activity. I used to stand in one spot for 4 hours and flail with nothing (still do but i am getting out of that habit). But now I am observing bird activity, jumpers/risers, and surface activity, topography and current. I feel the less I worry the better it is, just be more into whats going on. I really love how things are starting to unfold, slow and steady.
    Thanks :)
