The last couple of days on the Nauset have felt different, less frantic, more tranquil. The crickets are louder and the sun is softer. It’s September, and the season is winding down. For many vacationers fall is the best time of year. The crowds are gone, the beaches and restaurants are wide open and the days are cooler, if not shorter. Nicholas and his wife Gisele and her friend Jennifer come to Wellfleet this time of year for some relaxation from their hectic life in Manhattan. Bluefish run with abandon chasing peanut bunker this time of year. We couldn’t keep them off our line off High Head in Truro. Finally, after more than a couple of hours of some great catching on spinning rods, our weary anglers cried uncle. We found out later, our fishing buddy Fred Olander and mate Paul, fishing a hundred yards away, had a close encounter with a White shark. It took their fish right at the boat. We all would have loved that excitement! After a brief try at tempting some Striped Bass, they opted for pulling some lobster traps. 6-7 lobsters later it was time to head back to the Pamet Harbor. A really nice conversational trio, who loved the experience of being out on the water on a spectacular Fall day. See you again next year!
