Very Sorry……….been a busy week and I just haven’t found the time to get a report done. So many people have come into the store to give us their condolences……………we thank you. But as in the previous report we fully believe that Kay is shining down on us and watching all of you and sending her mojo to you. The pogies have been just off shore all this week and the boat guys have been doing well along the oceanfront. This report came in to us on July 3rd and want to thank Steve for sending.
Hi………..Little embarrassed I’m not wearing any of my surfland swag but at least I caught this guy with a surfland purchased octopus hook! The pogies were stacked up in the 50 foot mark off cranes for most of the morning. They were so dense it was a little tough getting under them but caught and released this beautiful 30 pounder bottom of the outgoing on a live lined pogie…….Steve
Man this guy loves to fish! Josh was back on the water Wednesday and sent us these pictures.
Got this pig on a live pogy right in front of your shop, after a quick pic the fish was released and swam off strong.
In the shop this week also on Wednesday we had Craig Ninteau from Litchfield NH come in with this gutted 8-6 pounder that he caught using mackerel down on the southern end on the island. He was fishing the bottom of the outgoing tide when he caught his fish. Told us that the others he caught were small, in the 14″- 16″ range.
The next day, Butterfly Bill from Amherst NH came in from fishing clams on the river side of the jetties with this 16-10 pounder. He also caught 3 other fish, all undersized on mackerel. Bill fished the start of the incoming tide about an hour after slack tide.
Then got a lesson from Andy on filleting…………………….
This morning, Craig here at the shop weighed in this 24-8 pounder caught by Tom Fornier of Salisbury. He caught this fish on clams on the front beach over in Salisbury right in the wash!!! See when we tell you that you don’t have to cast far……..the fish run the beach in close……….we actually do mean it!
