fished chatham area for the first time on the 8th and 9th....we got kinda discouraged coming out of chatham harbor to 47-49 degree water.... no fish that side, go around and its blues everywhere. Bigger ones to 9 pounds in rips and over shoals, smaller ones under birds, all feeding on small sand eels. saw bass up on the flats but couldnt get any takers (first timer for sightfishing flats), any tips? most would follow the fly to the boat then bolt away. overall very good two days of fishing.
