07 Aug A Break in the Summer Doldrums?
Well it was certainly a slow end to the month as far as fishing went. With things this slow there just hasn’t been anything to write about…..plus I was away. Sorry. Well I’m back now and it seems that with the opening of the southern lots in the refuge the fishing has picked up some. Not where we would want it to be, but there are a few decent fish around with more schoolies and from the rumors flying around there is also a white shark. Hmmmm, wetsuit fishermen be careful! Like James here who sent us this picture & caption on Friday. Is that a fin in the background James???
But, seriously………..nice fish and I’m glad Kay was with you:)
Good morning Surfland just wanted to send some good vibes everyone’s way Kay was with me this morning
This past Wednesday we had a beautiful 17 pounder come in that was caught off the beach down at Sandy Point. Greg Ardine from Danbury NH was using clams when he hooked into this fish. Guess the fish was sick of pogies and wanted something different to eat. Also landed down at Sandy Point was a small schoolie by Greg’s son, Dominick (red hat). Dominick also hooked into a bigger fish but lost it before he got to see it. Dominick was hoping for his first keeper……….next time!!!
And then just late this afternoon, Kurt Karkane from Westminster, Ma came in with the Ledger boys, Adam & Noah who are from Gardner, Ma. They came earlier inthe day to the shop , picked up some worms and went to lot 6 to fish down the PRWR. Just after low tide at 3:00 Kurt hooked into this 33″ fish that weighed in at 11.9 pounds. They also got about another half dozen fish but they were all undersized.
So, maybe we have turned the corner a bit and the fish are starting to feed once again. Have heard from a few of the night fishermen that the night bite has been decent. More being caught from the boats, but for them it is live eel time and or bigger surf plugs. (look at photo of James!)
