Fishing the PRWR

Fishing the PRWR

The season has begun for fishing the Parker River Wildlife Refuge! With the opening of the drive on season starting this past weekend, the night fishing well underway, and the whole beach open to fish this is the spot to be. It was a very nice reunion with a lot of the buggy guys over the weekend. A lot of you have been missing over the past few years and it is great to have you back. Many of you shared stories of Kay with us since we haven’t seen you since her passing and it was very touching. We had one fisherman who asked about Kay and was brought to tears when we had to tell him the news. (you know who you are and we are so ever grateful for your genuine display of love for our mother) It again reminded us of how many lives she has touched and what a special place in your hearts you have for her and we thank you all!!!

Okay but I can hear Kay now saying get back to what’s important………….fishing. There wasn’t much chatter about what went on over the weekend. We heard of a couple keepers but most reports were of schoolies. Must of been father and son weekend out on the beach because one such keeper was caught by Ron & Alex Burns from Newbury MA. Ron & Alex are drive-ons who fished south of lot 3 and used clams to catch this fish. It was the start of the outgoing tide. They hadn’t done anything and were thinking about packing up when they decided to give it one last cast. You just never know!!!

Ron & Alex Burns              24 lbs           39″

Another father son team that hit the beach over the weekend was Dave & Jack Coleman. He sent us this picture from the beach.

My son, Jack, hooked up with a schoolie along the beach. It was a great father/son moment we shared. We caught three using mackerel.


As of now it looks like we have a mixed bag of weather coming our way. Not sure what effects Dorian will have on our coastline over the next few days but can pretty much guarantee some strong rip currents so be careful out there!

    Just a note worth mentioning: Two guys were swept off the tip of the sandbar at the mouth of the Merrimack on Tuesday. Luckily a boat came to their aid. Just wanted to give a word of caution as that sandbar if a popular fishing place for many.
