August 12, Wicked Big Fish

Details to come, but we weighed in a 62 pound, 8 ounce striped bass today. Nighttime with live eels. Wow. Ed certainly puts in his time. Keeping the fish created quite a stir on the Reel Time forums. Check out all the opinions.



Who says there are no fish along the oceanfront?


Dave Depaulis from Chelmsford  caught a 26-10 using worms on august 7th. Dave is one of our long time “buggy” guys. But he had to foot this one back from the beach since there is no drive on yet.


Jonathan Stein from Wellesley, was in this morning and bought some mackerel, headed to the beach, and shortly returned with supper.  This one weighed 18-4. Again, this fish was caught from the oceanfront not far from the shop.


As you can see both fish were caught using different baits. So one someone comes in and asks “what should I use” it is hard to tell them.  You just never know what they feel like eating or why. So our advice to all you fishermen is “variety”


Stickman is the resident web design guy at Surfland. We pay him in eels.

    Wow…that is one heck of a fish. I wasn’t sure how much it weighed because the article has it listed as “26-10″…wasn’t sure if they meant 62-10.

    Welcome to the “60”lb club Bill…

    the naysayers compalining about anyone keeping a large (once in a lifetime) fish need to spend their efforts on banning turnoments like the striper cup…. how much dead meat have they produced…

    Congrats Bill on another beauty…
