First, thanks to all that offered advice/locations, etc. It was much appreciated. Secondly, it was just too warm/crowded for decent flyfishing off land, not for lack of trying though. Never did make it bay side of Great Island, simply ran out of time. Will definintely try again in the fall. Tried everything close to shore, streamers off sinking lines, snake flies, poppers, sliders, etc. nothing. My only consolation was that the bait people weren't getting much either. Word was that the blues were being taken on the surface in the bay, but the stripers were down in 60-75 feet of water. Atlantic coast looked good, esp Newcomb Hollow beach, but again, just ran out of time.
