South of the Vineyard (the sequel)

After reviewing the wind and weather forecasts we decided to try for those mahis and skippies we got into on Thursday. Easy cruise down Buzzards at 38 through Quicks and we are met with some very steep swells in Vineyard sound. Wind was supposed to die down so we just kept cruising at a much-reduced speed hoping it would flatten out a bit as we cleared the sound. It did, but not much. Headed straight for the fliers that we hit on Thursday...nothing. They were all void of any mahis. Water temps were down a few degrees so we started for the fingers. Sea started to flatten out nicely. We then began to notice that fish would swirl as the boat went by almost any floating debris. This was especially true when we passed scattered grass beds. We began to fish any that we saw without much success. Finally got a couple to the boat and started working our way east. Found lots and lots of them but they simply would not eat. They would follow along taking halfhearted swipes at the lures. Finally pull up to a high flier and we hit the jackpot of mahis and triggers. You could throw anything at them and they would attack it with reckless abandon. Even managed to get a few triggers to hit but couldn't get them to the boat. It was about that time we heard the thunder and saw the weather approaching. Decided it was best to leave them and started our miserable trip home. Wind picked up very quickly and the rain caught us about twenty minutes later. By the time we hit gayhead I knew it was time to purchase some new rain gear. Long run up the sound, through woods hole, up the bay and we were finally able to get in to some dry clothes a .

Hopefully we will get a weather window for one last shot before the falsies show up.
