This past weekend we saw some big tides, like Steve said in the previous post….June Moon!
First though flounder. Got an email the other night from Adam and Noah who were enjoying the beach and fishing for Father’s Day:
Hi Team Surfland, we fished 8-4 today. We caught 8 stripers 16″-22″ & 1 Flounder. We saw one guy get a nice keeper. Beach was packed! Good day though. Happy father’s day 2 all the fishing Dad’s out there!!! Adam & Noah.
Unfortunately we haven’t heard much about flounder, but maybe with some of the heat we have gotten the flounder fishing will heat up also.
It does indeed look like some bigger fish have arrived with the bigger tides. We weighed in a few keepers over the weekend, just in time for the grill for Father’s Day
On Saturday, Aaron Quinlan from Amesbury came into the shop from fishing the early hours of the bottom of the outgoing tide. He used a Sluggo to catch this 16-15 pounder from the surf.
The bait fishermen also did well Saturday with Barry Major from Haverhill getting this 17 pound, 36 1/2″ fish from mouth of the river at dead low using sea worms. And then from the other end of the island, Sandy Point, we had Bill Colborn from Lancaster, NH catch these two fish on clams during the incoming tide. Bill’s fish weighed in at 17-8 & 12.
Today Steve LeBlanc came in from fishing down the refuge with this 10-5
What else? News from the few charter guys we know says that mackerel are scarce one day and then plentiful the next. Time to start drifting the mouth if you can find some live macks before hand. Maybe even troll the front beach.
Boston Dave called today to give us a Boston area report. He was fishing off of Revere Beach from the boat and did well with blues, bass, and mackerel!
