15 May May 15th continued……………………………
Tall Jeff, where the *#+@! were you today???? Last word from you was that you would be here today. You were not seen in the river.
Report from the river for the low tide……………foggy, rainy!!!, but the fish were there.
Kyle from Manchester, NH was just in after fishing the low tide down the mouth of the “Mighty Merrimac”, and reported that the fish were there. Sizes ranged from about 24″-36″. Not everyone caught one, but most people that he saw fishing got a few. Kyle got a couple, biggest was about 28″. He said the birds inside the mouth were working the surface hard for a good ten minutes, but he couldn’t tell what kind of baitfish is was that they were diving for. Some of the others have shone up from fishing with much of the same report.
Principal Mike Parent from Newburyport High School has certainly put his time in today. He has fished both low tides today and has produced fish during both his 4am and 4pm trip. His biggest wass a 36″. Hope he isn’t tardy tomorrow.
Baits of choose today have been worms on the oceanfront and lures/jigs in the river. Sluggo’s on a jig head, Tuffcore, Ronz, Bill Hurley’s, leadheaded jigs with tails. They are all producing fish this year, but they always, do year after year. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Keep it simple!
