Same way I have been. Adjust to what I see. The fish around the cape are going to be a yr older that's 7-10" gain if they are the in fact from the class that has returned every year since 05. Last yr we saw fish from many age classes so you really cannot tell till August for certain. The fish off of RI are much more manageable usually under the 80# mark.
Why chase them when you can chase fish you can keep?? With the current regs if the same age class returns I won't be out there very much. Makes little sense to chase fish just to tag n brag to people who don't know or understand the fishery
