September 1, The Reserve Beach is open

September 1, The Reserve Beach is open

It’s that time of year again. Those of us who are too lazy to walk can once again drive down the Parker River Wildlife Reserve instead of walking. Those of us that like to walk, finally can too, and stay overnight with a fishing parking pass too.

.

There was a decent 34″ fish taken today at Lot 3 from the surf, so the fish seem to be looking for bait along the ocean front. The flats were pretty bumpy last night due to a persistent NW wind. There were fish to be had there too. At least one 38″ went home to the supper table last night. Eels were the predominate bait of choice. When the wind is strong from the NW, some guys try the Salisbury side of the river. Worth a thought.

.

The full moon tides arrive this week. Hard to say if they will bring the fish back into the river. Could be the ton of rain we had this past weekend pushed the bait out, and it’s now roaming the ocean hiding from hungry stripers and blues.

We did see some blues trolled up this week. The most productive boat seemed to be trolling an umbrella rig, and trolling it fast. While everybody else were sitting there holding their rods, the umbrella brought them up one after another.
