Road trip

I am sitting here at 4 am sipping on coffee , awaiting to get on the LIRR and dreaming of other places to be…places where moss covered rocks are protruding in the water, where kelp forest sway with every movement of the wave. A place where stripers roam unmolested by the charter or party boat fleet as the jagged rocks have pierced too many hulls in the past .

Montauk would be nice, stopping at Paulie’s for a fresh cup of coffee, making a cast while the lighthouse beacon shines its light on you every few seconds.

Block Island would not be bad either, swimming to the boulders at Black Rock or descending down the steep staircase at the southeast point.

But my first choice is always Cuttyhunk. Maybe because it’s so quaint and quiet. Maybe because you can’t get there with cars, or get internet to post fishing reports, or get a ride to a fishing spot. Or maybe because fish there receive a lot less pressure then most other places so even a goog like myself can catch a few.

We should book a whole club in the fall and make it a Surfcaster’s Journal weekend. We could maybe get Roger to rigs us some dynamite eels and Tommy to entertain us in a way only he can. Hmm, this might not be a bad idea…..who is in 🙂

    If you are a “goog that can catch a few” I’d hate to think what I would be called? But a guy can dream, it sounds awesome out there. Can’t wait till I get a chance to see it for myself.

    Cutty is on my list of places to visit.

    It would be amazing if somehow an event was put together.
    One weekend surf fishing festival to promote the island. Hop on the ferry over fish until you drop and then fish some more. Stop in at the clubhouse from time to time for a snack. As this event would hopefully have a tent set up with some beverages and hot soup to warm the bones.

    Side note It would be amazing if the club or some other place on the island had some exterior storage for day trippers to keep a change of clothing in when they were out fishing. I am thinking something like deck boxes that you call in advance to rent for a day. Bring your lock.
