23 Jul JULY 23 – Practicing CPR (Catch-Photo-Release)
Been a little bit since I updated the site with some photos from the past couple weeks, plus I had a couple from late in June i’ve been meaning to share. This past Friday night I guided Jim Cooney from Danvers MA. Although the fishing was a little slow overall, I managed to pick off a low 30″ fish and a mid 20″ just after dark. Jim however, stuck a fat 37″ fish which was easily pushing 20lbs on a yellow mambo minnow. Jim chose to let the beauty back into the water after a few pics, way to go Jim!!
Lately, when I have not been guiding customers I have had the pleasure of fishing with some new found fishing friends. I have known of the infamous “Kelly Boys” for some time now but never really spent anytime fishing with them before this year. Ed, Andy and Tom are all very talented and dedicated fisherman and I feel like I learn a little something new every time I head out with them. Brendan from Surfland has also been joining us out there and putting in work, and boy was he rewarded big time this past week! The fishing has not been easy, it has been a ton of work actually. Long walks, late nights, chest deep wading, cold water, fog, waves, sweat, bugs, the list goes on…..but we have been rewarded.
If you want fish you have to work for them this time of year….you have to put in your time (and possibly a lot of it.) But if you do, you too will be rewarded….
Oh and all of our fish have been released healthy after a few pictures!
So there you have it…..clearly there are some big fish around. All of these fish were caught within the past month! Get out there and get yours!!!
