    Gray, purple and chartreuse over cream bucktail stinger clouser.
    Loose scales and multiple herring in the larger fish.

    Nice--Do you mind saying what area you were in? (or PM if you'd like) I fished an MA-9 beach this morning that was slow--saw a few subtle indicators of fish present but no tugs. Also had a seal follow me up and down the beach about 50 feet out for my first 40 minutes. Would like to get out tomorrow for one last day. Great fish!

    GMTA, Brian! I have an identical decal on the front of my basket! (And please don't tell me you have a TU decal on the side! I'm still looking for a stylish "Hello Kitty" decal for the starboard side!)

    Oh BTW, nice fish!!

    Nice job Brian! I went 1 for 1 with another follow all the way to the beech. Couple more from the herring crowd. Also MA9

    I have put about 8 hrs in over the last few day in MA10. Only got one hook up and missed my STRIP SET. No fish in hand since last month. Last night was sure a beautiful sun set over the trees throwing a great glow on the water. I have seen a lot of nets out there lately, so I guess someone is getting some fish.

    2 for 4 today. Couldn't keep the two bigger fish buttoned.
    You couldn't ask for a nicer day on the water, especially this afternoon. Thanks to Dave (Go Fish) for joining me today.

    Nice work Brian! I was gonna try to get up and fish this morning but after a long ass day yesterday I just couldn't drag my butt out of bed. Thanks for the motivation to get up early tomorrow before back to work Tue

    Awesome! You've given me the drive to drag my ass out of bed again in the morning! All I want is my one big coho to end it right!

    Nice work on the chrome silver hens Brian. Those have some great girth on them and look real bright like it was still late August.

    Larry,
    Based on the dry weather forecast for this week, you still have time to get it done.
