May 21, Nice pickings

We weighed in a fat 19 pound Striper this morning caught at daybreak with a topwater plug. Topwater did the trick last night at dusk on Emerson’s Rocks too.   Haven’t heard the results, but last night Joppa Flats looked like a fishing derby was underway. I counted 15

May 20, The fish are around the local spots

Early mornings on the reservation have been very productive, as has the Plum Island River by the bridge using worms. New England Kayak Fishing’s Forum fishermen Stripah wrote about Joppa Flats being wild last sunset with topwater plugs. He’s on the kayak and knocking

May 19, Nice day, good fishing

The weather finally has cleared and it’s a really nice calm sunny day. Call in sick to work and come out. The tide is going out this morning and it’s looking like an excellent fishing day. White is the color of the week. White shad, white sluggos, white bucktails.

Ed Kelley fished Sunday and killed them

Ed Kelly says  My 2 sons and I were out today in the wind and rain and managed 21 fish, 3 keepers, the rest were 24-27in ..not bad great day. Surprisingly most were on clam not the worm. Sometimes the worst weather brings the best fishing.

May 18, Bait Guys Rule, Incoming Macs?

This morning a few guys were having luck at the Reservation Lot 1 sing sea worms. There were also fish taken at the end of Plum Island Boulevard just down the block from the shop. Those were on clams. It’s a pretty nice day here on the island. Grey but not raining or too

May 17, Blowin and Raining

We’ve got a cranking NW wind here this morning. Top gust of 28 but sustained 20mph. Raining hard too. Last night had a report of one fish on Joppa, but no reports this morning before the weather kicked in full. You’ll have to be sturdy to fish today, though it’s

May 16, Steady pickings

Kinda cool out today, grey. But the fish are here and people are landing stripers at the usual haunts. Parking lot 1 on the beach produced even though the water was rough. The guys at the sandbar at the Merrimack had steady going. Two fellows came in at 11 to thank us for the

May 13, Joppa heating up

A lucky boat fisherman grabbed a 34″ bass and a 20″ bass in successive casts this morning at Joppa Flats. On the way into work today I noticed John Liss wading the edge of the the channel out there. Haven’t heard a report. Must still be a little chilly chest

May 12, Steady but not Super

Guys on the Merrimack river found a slow but steady stream of schoolies yesterday on the outgoing tide. Nothing too active but fish are being taken. One of the regulars took his boat upriver towards the Chain Bridge and was excited to see a Bald Eagle fly over his boat. But under
