Laura Martin from Billerica, MA was visiting friends on Plum Island yesterday and went out fishing from their boat. First they headed out and caught a few live mackerel and then live lined them to fish for stripers. Laura caught her first ever striper Saturday from the boat and weighed in this 22-5 pounder at the shop yesterday afternoon after the low tide.
If you have a boat, fish just outside the mouth of the Merrimac or head south along the refuge or a bit further south and fish Ipswich Bay and out the off of Cranes. There are stripers in all these spots and a few bluefish around also!
