Happy Father’s Day

First of all, let me wish a Happy Father’s Day to all our blog and magazine readers. Enjoy the day with your loved ones. I know firsthand how does it feel to not have a dad around on this day and I know many of your miss your dad’s too, especially today.

I worked yesterday and came home and went to a friend’s house. After getting back around 2 am I packed my truck and headed to the beach. I managed to make it to 7/11 about three blocks away before turning around and going to bed. Some night the mind wants to but body is not willing.

After a very difficult Cuttyhunk trip last week were we literally just hanged around, waiting for water to clean up I needed something to shake my rod. Fortunately I found some fish locally during the week. But even here the water was off color. I think we all had enough rain.

This has so far been a very, very strange June. If you have been at this game for awhile you probably share my feelings that the month of June is probably your best shot at a big fish. Cape Cod, New York, New Jersey, in most places the month of June is usually the “cow month” and particularly around the period of new moon. But I don’t think it happened this year and I think Tropical Storm Andrea and the numerous stormed that followed it last week put a huge damper on “what might have happened’. Or what we expected to happen.

I am curious to see what happens going forward. I stopped by a local tackle shop yesterday and they told me that local weakfish bite has been pretty good. To be perfectly honest I completely lost the track of weakfish last month. The place I like to target need specific win conditions and its been either too windy or wrong direction or that darn pesky thing called work got in a way. Is any of our readers catching weakfish with consistency? I guess I just want to know if the bite is active or if its sporadic.

Ok, I took enough of your time this Father’s Day, go enjoy it with your families.

    a belated happy fathers day to all, for the emotions that tug at our strings for fathers that are no longer here with us – I feel that it has been replaced by the joy of spending the day with our children, life is a full circle.
    guess the cows that came into mtk missed the rain/dirty water memo the past 2 weekends 🙂 1- high 40’s 1- low 40’s surf caught. the mecca did not disappoint those guys.
