Check this out for what it's worth!

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy skies. High 49F. Winds E at 5 to 10 mph

Now that sounds like a possibility to me and it's before the low pressure system rolls in on us.

At 7:03 AM Thursday 04, 2003 there is a Major feeding peak forcasted for our area. Yes I think tomorrow should be the best day of the week to catch that big one from Sandbridge.

Tight lines............................. :cool:

slipping into darness

We'll be heading out early in the AM(6) to try and catch the window of weather. Looks like the weekend is ugly. Should be real fishy 2morrow if we can find the bait. Evidently the Menhaden boats worked the bait over so well, the fish have moved on. Reort from CH to 3 miles S of Rudee was, '1 30" fish, and few birds', that sux. I hope some more fish move back in soon and I really hope those Menhaden boats have LOTS of engine trouble. *****

Zigh,

RE: Menhaden, I post along the following:

In the December, 2003 issue of Saltwater Sportsman, Ken Hinman, president of the National Coalition for Marine Conservation in Leesburg, Virginia, describes the deplorable condition of the menhaden population in the Chesapeake Bay. This fish, which is near the base of the food-chain in the Bay, feeds on microscopic plankton and serves as the single most important forage species for fish such as striped bass, flounder, spanish mackeral, trout and the like. Hinman notes in the article that scientists are beginning to think that the diminished availability of this important forage species is contributing to the overall poor health being seen in many striped bass.

All states on the Atlantic seaboard have banned menhaden fishing except for Virginia which hosts the last remaining industry in Reedville. Of course, this has meant that the fishery has exclusively focused its efforts in Virginia and, especially, within the Chesapeake Bay.

Previous efforts to encourage the ASMFC to take steps to regulate this industry have failed despite overwhelming ecological evidence of the need.

Hinman is leading an effort to acquire signatories to a petition to the ASMFC to "...prohibit all purse seining for Atlantic menhaden within the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries". The petition may be signed online at:

https://secure.savethefish.org/secure/action_items_striped_bass_petition.cfm

I encourage you to sign the petition today if you have concern for the health and welfare of our fisheries. It is clear that ASMFC will continue to bow to these special business interests unless we, the sportsmen, exercise our political muscle by signing this petition.

If you decide this issue is important, I encourage you to forward this to as many recreational fishermen as you can as quickly as you can. You may also want to consider asking your favorite tackle shops to place written copies of the petition where sportsmen can see it and act on it.

I'll post on P&S Fishing Issues Board similarly.

Save some for the rest of us,

`bucket
