Only a few more days and we should be picking up the new rig. As of now, we can get her in Quincy around 9 am, then have a quick rundown with the Russo team, and should be off. The only wild card right now is the weather, which looks a bit dodgy, but we’re going to make this happen.
Ethan is joining my bro and I for the trip, and we will be packing plenty of tuna gear for the run to Harwich. Pending the weather, plan is to head to Stellwagen from Quincy and look for tuna. We have a free condo in Provincetown Friday night, so plan to hang there and rip it up, and then head down the backside to Plymouth on Saturday – hopefully fishing a good stretch.
If anyone has any more fishing reports, send them in for us to post. Word is the bluefish are making their way up already and some early reports that the rips on Monomoy are starting to heat up. Here in beantown, I was down by the aquarium last weekend and in broad daylight, with a million tourists and multiple ferries moving around, there was a school of big bass just hanging out, eating the hot dog buns tourists were throwing to them right where the ferries launch. Saw the same thing last year (later in the year) and still amazes me.
Lastly, for some light summer reading, if anyone is looking for a good book – just finished MEG – the story of a 70 foot prehistoric great white that is discovered living in the Marianas Trench and goes on a killing spree – good stuff. The 3rd book in the series just came out – MEG: Hell’s Aquarium . They’re making a movie out of it, so check it out.
Speaking of movies – look at this trailer for the upcoming movie ‘Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus’ and tell me this doesn’t look like the best movie since ‘Orca’ or ‘Spring Break Shark Attack’. And it stars the Debbie Gibson.
Ok, back to the fishing – had a few more inquiries on the site this week so keep spreading the word. T-shirts should be finalized this week so let us know if you want us to send any out, otherwise we’ll be leaving a few with folks across Harwich and you can always find them at the Hot Stove Saloon downtown.
As always, let us know if you have any questions and get those registration forms in.
Wish us luck this weekend, hopefully the weather, and MEG, cooperate.
