We wanted our readers to know about a Plum Island resident and fisherman that passed away a few weeks ago. Robert Mitchell, aka “Mitch” was an avid fisherman and fished both boat and beach for bass and blues. Mitch was retired from Verizon and enjoyed everything that Plum Island has to offer! His wife Sandy, kept Mitch supplied in enough Surfland gift certificates to keep any man exceptionally happy. Mitch fished out of a Lund boat that he kept in the Merrimack and fished all around PI.
Being lucky enough to live on the northern end of the island, gave Mitch lots of surf fishing time as well as enjoying the 4WD access down on PRNWR. Mitch was an all around nice guy who would help anyone, anytime (Some of you will know this all to well). A gentleman’s handyman with a great sense of humor. A favorite spot for him to fish was “High Sandy”! He was one of our favorites! He will be missed!
