Yesterday afternoon John Lob from Newton weighed in this 11-11 pounder that he caught from the oceanfront on worms.
Again, Sunday seems to be the hot day. The usual crowd of thugs…….sorry fishermen……….were here at opening to get their bait and head to the beach. Some of them came back in to the shop later on to give us the news. Joe Torname came in with his dinner that weighed in at 14 pounds. Joe fished the oceanfront with worms during the top of the incoming tide, through it, and into the top of the outgoing. He said that for the first few hours today everyone was hooking up, then after the change of the tide it went quiet.
Mark Rennie from Barrington NH , pictured here with his 15 pounder, fished the bottom of the outgoing tide. He caught his fish using clams in the mouth of the Merrimac River.
And, finally just a few moments ago we had our resident misfit, Teddy come in with his 12-4 pounder that he caught walking the oceanfront casting a bucktail jig. And there it is, the key to lure fishing, WALKING. You have to get out and walk up and down the beach. Do not stay in one place, move about. Teddy and quite a few others are coming up with a lot of fish becasue they are staying mobile. So, if you are someone who likes to strictly work the plugs, keep moving.
