Almost March!

Winter is cranking along.  I have been recuperating from MOHS surgery on my nose.  Seems I got some basal cell skin cancer and it had to be cut out.  Much more intrusive surgery than I had hoped for.  I have some more appts with the doc that will involve dermabrasion to smooth it out and possibly some laser work.  Ahhhh the perils of having a day to day job in the sun!!
Things are weird this winter.  So weird in fact that the Right Whales have returned to feed in the bay about a month early!  What does this mean?  Maybe nothing.  Year after year predictions are made as to when the striped bass will show up.  If the winter is warmer than normal, people make the prediction the bass will show early.  They never really do and I have come to believe it has to do with the length of days vs the water temp.  BUT!..that was until THIS crazy winter which never really was winter.  Bulbs are sprouting, whales are breaching and here it is still Feb.....So what this all means is I plan to have the boat ready May1st for trips!  I wouldn't recommend travelling from afar to hit early May with me but if your fairly close and want to get a jump on the season then MAY might be for you. 
Other things of note, I have really been working hard on my photography skills...I swear it is like a full time job learning all the features on your camera and PP *post processing*.  Post Processing *Photoshop* is really an art within itself.  I bought a new lens to use on the boat this year for close up work and am really looking forward to putting it to use....
As for the email list, I have struggled trying to send all my fishing contacts an email as a group.  My server bounced it back and I am still not sure how to send a mass email to my fishing contact list!!!....Anybody using a MAC wants to shoot me an email and unlock the mystery is more than welcome and I would much appreciate!!...Till next tide.......

For some odd reason I have never booked many trips in the last two weeks of May. I'd like to change that this year and fish solid straight into June.  As always, June fills up fast and my June calendar as of this posting has 10 days left in it.  I highly encourage anyone looking for some light tackle / flyfishing action on striped bass to look at the last couple weeks of May.  I put this posting up on FB and booked the 30th and 31.....I am also in the process of creating an email list, *something I should of had long before now*.  If you would like to be on the list, shoot me an email at info@finaddiction.com and I will add you to it. 
It has been a very warm winter for us to date and we all wonder if this will start things earlier than normal.  Regardless, it won't be long before the first fly line snaps taught as a flatwing drops to the surface and disappears into the flowing current.....One long strip....pause...two quick....pause and all the cobwebs of winter have now disappeared as the first fish of the season makes a nice solid run.....
