19Jun06 - I fished the Delaware River from 7:30 - 9:30 PM.  Several smallmouth bass and suckers were seen cruising the shallows.  The bass were aggressive and repeatedly hit my large striper fly.  I caught one striped bass that measured approximately 20" using a 3/0 tan Gummy minnow type fly with an intermediate 10 weight line.  I tried a chartreuse and white 2/0 Deceiver with no luck.

28May-06Jun06 - I fished Martha's Vineyard, MA for 10 days.  A majority of my time was spent fishing the western side of the island, including Dogfish Bar.  I caught fish (stripers, hickory shad and a few flounder) each evening up to approximately 60 fish/night ranging up to 36" inches.  Nearly all fish were 24" or less.  I managed to drop one large fish due to a poor hook-set.  Flounder ranged between 19 and 21".  Juvenile sand eels were thick close to shore.  Hickory shad were keying in on eels and were easy prey to any small thin patterns (i.e. fly at the bottom of this page).  To avoid shad I predominately fished a 3/0 olive Vineyard Minnow with success.  Squid were in and easily caught in the evenings on high slack tide at the Edgartown town dock.  Sharks to 5 feet were swimming close trying for an easy meal.  Worm hatches were happening in the Lagoon as well.
