I hit a westside MA9 beach today without a lot of love. Started out at about 9 a.m. and the only excitement was at about 2 p.m. when a 5 or 6 lb. fish zoomed in at hyper-speed and tried to grab my fly about 10 ft. away from my feet. I was so startled (was gettin' really used to nothing happenin') that I stopped the retrieve and obviously the fish decided "I'm outta here!" Lesson learned! Saw 3 silvers landed by bait/gear fishermen. One about 5 lbs. and the others smaller. I also found that the bullhead in this area absolutely love chartreuse! Any time I put out a fly with chartreuse I had nonstop sculpin action!
