Are they early also?

I know that things got off to an early start with bass, any reports of tuna showing up yet? I seem to recall them showing up the first and second week of june the past couple years.

Everything is better on the rocks.

they're here.

My friend did a run from Chatham airport to Jeffrey's in his plane. Several bunches of 60" fish east of the bank. A pile of bait.

Got another cryptic text message late last night (from someone who posts here) regarding the first one caught. We'll see.

Was out EAST early today and we didn't find/see any (that includes other boats other than trawlers) ...whale show was great on the SWC and so was bass fishing @Woods End.
