Big Fish are Here!

Big Fish are Here!

Scott Pelkola is from Paoli, PA. He is up here in MA visiting his nephew Brian. The two came to Plum Island to fish the southern end of the island for the low tide. What a morning they had! Scott hooked into this huge fish at 6:30 this morning during the bottom of the outgoing tide. This fish weighed in at 43-5 pounds and was caught on Mackerel. The guys also caught an 18 pounder and a 26″ fish. This is a vacation the uncle will remember for some time to come.

So, I guess my weekend review post was lost on a computer glitch. I will try to reproduce the best I can the stories and photos on this post. These are all pictures and fish from last week through the weekend.

Tommy Rekar from Manchester NH has had a good year so far. He was back again Wednesday to weigh in this 12-12 pounder he caught during the afternoon outgoing tide in the Merrimac River. The fish he said he caught at dead low which was about 4:30 Wednesday.

We also had some photos sent to us from other surfcasters and a boater. Friday John Holt sent in these photos and caption.

“A few photo’s from lot #1 yesterday afternoon. Caught over 16 fish on clams all between 14-27″. Lots of fun. First striper ever for my wife Nancy! Lots of fish around, get out and enjoy, and teach someone new (like your wife) and see the smiles grow!”

Dom, one of the hardcore night fisherman sent this photo in from up the seacoast. They have been seeing a lot of bigger fish move in and are doing great with the catch and release thing! Thanks Dom for the photo!

Joseph Armano sent us this photo and caption from fishing out of his boat in the river:

A lot of fish in the river the last two hours before low tide. Thanks for the eels last night, it paid off.
So, the week is supposed to be gorgeous, the holiday is coming up, and we are trying to get ready for you. As you all know bait has been very hard to get this year. Our clam orders get cut in half or canceled, the mackerel have moved off shore, have come back around for a few days but we are now getting reports of bluefish in the area so who knows what will happen now, the worms situation is hard the weeks the tides are short, and herring? what’s that? The boats are just not getting them. So, we thank you for your patience and continued patronage. We are working hard to come up with the best bait options we can find! Our customers are the best!
