03 Jun John & Haley’s Beach Day
John Szostak and Haley Lavigne came to Plum Island this am about 10:30. They got some worms and headed out to fish the high tide on the oceanfront on the Parker River Wildlife Refuge. They had a fun day fishing catching small bass on worms. Hours later and it is now the middle of the outgoing tide when usually nothing much happens. The water is fairly shallow on this section of beach and John happened to notice some good sized shapes moving through the water. Big bass were running the beach. He put on a Daiwa SP minnow in a green mackerel pattern that he had with him and started casting out into the school. Bam! They started hitting the lure. John got a 30.5″ that he released back into the water. Bam! Next one was a 45″, 29-12lbs, that he decided to keep and eat. Good thing John caught sight of the school coming at them because they were thinking of leaving at the point. So again, you just never know when the fish might show up! And on this crazy windy island day!
