The first and only thread to read, two three and four times a day - sorry, had to do it :D .

It would be hard to imagine what my fishing adventures would be like without first checking in on the Cape/Atlantic Reports to see if the fish are hitting. For me, the report is akin to a group of good friends that fan out in a area to better cover it and to find the fish. When one does he signals to rest. "Cast over here, there biting on this, the retrieve is this," he says as he puts you on the fish too.

Thanks Night for keeping up with it and to all the rest who keep the information flowing - it truely is a cooperative effort.

Now, get some rest, Spring is only two months away by my reckoning. ;)

Enjoyed being part of the forum and many thanks for the info parted from you and others. Many a morning with the eyes burning like two piss holes in the snow I was making my contribution to the board. Again have a good one and will be part of it again in the spring. Come on March 1, 2004.

Thanks Steve, we all know you put a lot into your C/A Reports. Reading the reports helps get me by when I can't get out on the water.
I'll be freshwater fishing until the action picks back up in the springtime. Already looking forward to next year!

Steve, You are the one to thank! I've had the pleasure of fishing with you almost weekly and I understand how much the CAR means to you and how dedicated you are to the thread. It is obvious that your intentions for starting this thread was not to brag about your own fishing ability but to provide a forum so everyone could gain and give knowledge. I also know how frustrated you were at times when the boys get a little restless. You always did your best to remain focused and kept the thread going.

I also want to thank you for the friends I have made thru this thread. There were many hours spent on the sods, the yak and bridges with you and them which made me look forward to the lack of sleep!

I can't wait to 3/1/04 to start it all up again!
