Musings on Striped Bass Carcasses.........

Striped bassImage via Wikipedia

Yesterday on my early morning beach run, I stumbled (quite literally) upon several striped bass carcasses, fillets missing, heads and tails intact.  "Yuck!" you might say.  But it actually made me smile.  This particular harbinger of summer, discarded from a passing fishing boat, was a pleasant reminder that Cape Cod Summer 2009 is finally on the way!  It's been a long, cold winter here on the Cape, but the fisherman are already out and the Cape Cod summer season officially begins this weekend!  (Am I the only one who didn't know that striped bass were running this early?  Probably....  I actually love to fish - something few people know about me - I can even bait my own hook!)

Today is the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend 2009.  The traffic outside my office window has steadily increased as the afternoon wears on.  The weather report is for sunny skies and it won't be long before we know how this economy will effect the upcoming tourist season......and the striped bass population!  Stay tuned for more musings on BOTH!

Happy Memorial Day!

    Howdy! This blog post couldn't be written any better! Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept preaching about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he'll have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
