Arrived at Eastern Point Light in Gloucester to find lots of birds and fish working from the light north to Braces Cove. So long as I stayed close to shore I was protected from the NW wind but substantial rollers formed as the tide started cooking... fishing heated up too
Blind casting resulted in Stripers to 24" and casting into blitzes yielded Blues to 30". Wound up sitting in the middle of the largest most concentrated blitz I have ever seen. Bait (looked like large peanuts) was so thick that the fly line had trouble sinking through it and the 5-10lb. Blues underneath were just as thick. With all those teeth going airborne I got a little spooked and paddled out before I started loosing digits. Packed it in by 9am when most of the activity had moved on. All fish taken on large Deceivers. First two Blue ones were lost but a 60lb flouro bite tippet saved this green one.
