More tales about early morning schoolies. 15-18″ fish in the river mouth, along with a good number of flounder. And finally the mackerel are out in good numbers.
Yesterday there was a drowning off the sandbar at Plum Island Point. A number of beachgoers were swept off the sandbar into the river at about 57 degrees cold. While the bulk of them were rescued by boaters, one did not make it and is still missing this afternoon. The sandbar is bigger this year and can lure we fishermen out on it to get closer to the fish. It’s important to remember that the west side of that bar drops from 3 feet to more than 25 feet deep, and really quickly. So watch yourself if you fish in this area, especially on an incoming tide.
