7/10 Living waters joppa report

7/10 Living waters joppa report

Boat guys got lots of stripers outside on the sandbar near the Captains Lady on the Merrimack river. Flounder fishing is good a short way offshore, we’ve seen a half dozen keepers in the shop. Only weighed in a couple of legal stripers fish over the last couple days. So from our end it’s down a little. However, we read all the other reports and this one comes from the Reel-Time forum, written by Living Waters. You should read Reel-Time every time you read us and you”ll get a bigger picture of what’s going on.

“Fished Joppa this morning 5am to noon, I was the only boat on the flat for most of the morning. The crowds are really down this year. Despite the high river level there’s still a decent number of large fish around. I landed about 10 fish between 30 to 40 inches and some smaller ones, fairly consistent with what the fishing has been like this year. Not a great morning but no complaints considering the conditions.
Every trip on Joppa this year has been an adventure in new patterns. The flat is really dirty, making conditions tougher but the the fish are still there, you just have to work a little harder. Water temp was 66 degrees, mostly from the influence of the river. It was great to see the sun!”

    7/12 Sunday..we went out on lot 1 for sunset..when we arrived stripers were blitzing everywhere. We had a blast landing fish up to 27in”. They were right in tight to the beach, chasing bait in the suds, in fact quite a bit of bait was scared right up on the beach!

    OK, let me get this straight..the sun is out, there are blue skies, no other boats on the water and you caught 10 fish between 30 and 40 inches…then quote ” Not a great morning but no complaints considering the condition”.

    Are you kidding me? I want to fish with you on a good day….

    for all you guys catching fish, why not share a little more detail so we can learn..
