Rise and Shine…………9/23/11

     Well for you early birds the Parker River Wildlife Refuge is now going to open their gate at 5:15 am. The Sparrows have flown the coup, or should we say the road. They liked to sit on the road because of the warth and some of the little critters were getting run over in the wee hours of the morning so now that they are migrating south they will open earlier!!!!!!!!

     This past week we have heard of a few stripers being taken on the oceanfront using bait, mostly worms and clams. There have been some schoolies mixed in with the catch which is nice to see. Bryan from Vermont was out fishing Monday late afternoon and picked up some schoolies using metal lures. Other reports have been similiar.  So I guess the best we can tell you is to come on down and give it a try. That’s if you can find us in the FOG. Thick as pea soup around here!

     Last night, Tim Flynn from New Hampshire went out to the oceanfront on the refuge. He called in this morning with a report.  His group of  people (think there were about 3 of them) caught 15 bluefish, 3 keeper bass, and 6 schoolies. Now that’s a good night of fishing! He is coming again tonight to see if he can have a repeat experience.
