Bring on 2010. I sure hope the fishing for me is better this year. I all but gave up fishing on the beaches of Cape Cod. The seals seem to be ruling the surf. Before the end of the year I did manage to fish the ponds a few times. Pictured is my buddy Harry who managed to get a small salmon in Big Cliff. My last fishing trip of 2009 I managed to get one small rainbow trout. Now with all the snow and cold fishing is on hold. I am hoping to get some ice fishing if it stays cold enough. I am eager to get some of those delicious yellow perch.

Last Monday I went on an all day Fluke fishng trip on the Helen H out of Hyannis. I was accompanied by my friends Harry, Pete, and Pete's son, Josh. What a fabulous day we had. Weather was beautiful, boat was not too crowded and we did catch some big fluke. I am not a meat fisherman, but boy is that fluke tasty. I look forward to a repeat of that trip next year. Josh caught the largest fluke weighing over 6 lbs.

I have been very busy gardening this spring and participating in the Orleans Farmers' Market. The fishing off the beach has continued to be poor as it was last year with many seals and few fish. The plovers have forced closure of the beaches to vehicles much earlier than in the past and a spring NE storm has done lots of damage to the beach. More of the camps on the southern portion of Nauset have been destroyed. I have managed to take a few decent fish from Pleasant Bay, Cape Cod Bay, and Town Cove. On the gardening front I have had less problem with critters so far this year, but the very wet spring slowed up the sun loving plants like the tomatoes. With the recent nice sunny days they are now growing nicely. I have over 100 tomatoes planted and am looking for a large crop to stock up spaghetti sauce, salsa, tomato soup for the winter. What I have left over will be given away or sold at the Orleans Farmers' Market.
