11 Apr Plum Island Surfcasters Monthly Meeting Tue. April 16
Capt. Scott Maguire will be speaking at the Plum Island Surfcasters April club meeting. This is a presentation you won’t want to miss!
Capt. Scott Maguire has been fishing the Merrimack River for more years than he cares to admit. His in-depth knowledge of fishy nooks and cranies in the Merrimack fuels his successful Summer Job Charters service and his must-read “The Merrimack Fishing Report“. His clients landed 300+ keepers last year!
Capt. Scott Maguire will be presenting “Live Bait, Merrimack River”. He will discuss where and how to catch live bait. And, where and when to fish the live bait. Catching and fishing live bait is a highly effective skill that will put more fish in your boat or kayak!
Chef Kevin Moore will be preparing and serving supper (at prices that will not break the bank) from 7:00 PM until the start of the meeting. The business portion of the meeting will be brief. Here are the details:
What: April 2013 Club Meeting
When: 16-APR-2013 (Doors open at 7:00 PM)

They anticipate having the new PISC Member decal for your vehicle’s window at this meeting, and will be handing them out to all paid members!
If you have not renewed your 2013 membership, then you can do so at this club meeting. In fact, if you bring a friend and your friend joins the club as a new member, then you get $10 off your 2013 membership!!
I hope you can make it to this club meeting to learn some new tips from Capt. Maguire and pick up your Member Decal.
Schoolies Hit Rhode Island!
This was posted on the Rhode Island Striped Bass site two days ago by David Pickering.
“It took exactly three warm days and a southwesterly flow and BINGO, the oceanfront lit up with schoolies. Just as I had predicted in my previous post, this was the week for it to happen. I went to the oceanfront with my son, Ben, today and we had phenomenal schoolie action as we landed one fish after another. These were all small schoolies, typical perfect fish that are covered in sea lice that you find in April. I will say they were really small with all our fish measuring less than 16 inches long!. We used a combination of Cocahoes and shrimp fly teasers to catch them on light tackle. About half the fish took the Cocahoe and half hit the teaser. From what my sources tell me, the action began yesterday, April 8, when a few fish were taken. The Mother Lode hit the shore today. I suspect the action in the Bay will pick up in the next few days if it hasn’t already. Give it another week and we should see some small keepers. The new season is finally here!”
