Old flies on the dashboard of the boat

It’s that time of year, fleas and flies both find their way to the boat. Some of the flies are invit­ed, the fleas… not so much.

They aren’t actu­al­ly fleas, but they are small dark bugs that attach them­selves to the boat, your legs, and any­where they can. Rumor has it that striped bass eat these bugs. Striped bass eat grreen­head flies as well.

Barn­sta­ble Har­bor is all about the tides. Every trip is based on tide. Is the tide com­ing in, will the tide be going out? Incom­ing tides are espe­cial­ly sus­cep­ti­ble to fleas and flies because the tide comes in the bugs can no longer cling to the grass. Any pass­ing boat is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for rest­ing. So hop on they do. And they bite!!!!

But real­ly, on this boat we are all about the flies! Fish­ing with the flies. So come on out and check out what our flies can do!!!

BTW, this big engine can out run those fleas any day!!! 🙂
