April 2004 Daily Fishing ReportsApril 29: In My Head
After a game in Falmouth, I thought about heading to Popponesset and the spit, but recent posts on Internet boards and memories of crowds thereabouts the last couple of years kept me away.
It's pretty amazing how many more anglers there seem to be with less territory to fish in. As much as I was brought up a shore angler, I have come to appreciate the boat more since it opens up the opportunity to get away from the crowds and try out spots that you can't get to by foot.
April 28: Cotuit
Advice Not Taken
Despite my better judgment, I headed to the Narrows again to see if the fish were still there. The reason I say that is I often warn about assuming the fish will show the next day just slightly later with the tide. Well, I was forewarned as there were a few fish around but nothing like the day before. I was able to manage one pre-schoolie and called it a day with work at home waiting.

You Win Some, You Lose Some
We might have lost a game at Sandwich, but at least I had a moral victory with my first fish of the year from the Narrows in Cotuit. A fellow next to me was really doing a job with a small swimming plug, but I was happy with the three or four nice fish I took with the fly rod. It was kind of cool to know that if you hit a spot with a long enough cast, you were rewarded; if not, you were out of the money. All in all, a good day
April 19 - 24: Buzzards Bay Shore
The Hunt Continues in Earnest
April vacation proved to be unsettled for me as well, with some practices in the morning and some fishing with no success at night. Warm weather crept in midweek, but I still haven't located any fish in Buzzards Bay from the shore, although my efforts have been less than heroic. Work on the boat continues well at least
April 16: Buttermilk Bay
A Fish and Chips Finish
Another cold day found Gene and I in another Buttermilk Bay spot with the same results - no fish. Fortunately, it was a beautiful afternoon and there was some sun to at least make it feel like it was warm. In the end, the only fish we caught were some fish and chips as we played tourist at a fried food spot.
April 11: Buttermilk Bay
A Windy Start
I finally got around to do some fishing today with my friend Gene Bourque, but the day would have been better suited to sailing. The wind made casting and working a drift in Buttermilk Bay almost impossible and it was darn cold as well. Still, it felt good to have a rod in hand once again.
