    Pulled in one average hen this AM in MA9. Some big jumpers (coho) a couple hundred feet out....couldn't manage even with the hero wind. ;) Wind was brutal on this side with 20+ mph winds from S/SE

    Nice work Matt. I ended up not being able to get out this morning. The wind here in the yard has made me not too upset. Hope it's fishable in the AM.

    Nice work Matt. That S / SE wind can be brutal there.
    How'd the fish eat, aggressively or a soft take?

    Pretty good hit....not the super soft thing they've been doing. Thought it was a lot bigger at first.

    Oh man, can't wait to get out tomorrow. I for one and going to keep at it until I stop hearing about fish/catching my share.

    Damn it would be awesome to get into a steelhead in the salt.

    Maybe I'll see some of you out there...

    Don't get your hopes up for a steelhead. Not that it can't happen, but it sure isn't likely.

    Yeah. I wouldn't expect one. But how fun would that be. I've always loved Steve Raymond's essay in one of the "Year" books about discovering the little estuary where he can catch steelhead after such and such kind of weather.

    In any case, I'll be more than happy to hook into a few more Coho before things finish up. Smoked my first fish last weekend--with some tips from ten80--and it turned out soooo good. Really want to do some more of that.
