After a two week slump I finally got into some fish. Hit the first of the incoming on a big flat. Fished crab flies (Buffy) slowly across sand bottom in two to four feet of water. Saw a good number of fish cruising the flat and got a couple around 30 inches ! that breaks the longest dry spell I've had in years. :D

Way to go Mal. You have the patience of Job. You earned those fish. I'm hoping to catch the high tide this weekend around 5'ish.

Good to hear the fish are moving in shallow water, hopefully they'll be around for the CBAC Striper Hunt next weekend. This wasn't caught in ME waters, but fairly close on the north shore of MA on Monday. Scott got lucky using a tiny sand eel pattern.
