15 Sep September 15, Schoolies striped and blue
Only a few boats out in the mouth this morning. Most folks were trolling, and we didn’t see many fish. So, back to basics. given the number of sand eels in the vicinity, we broke out a couple Charlie Graves and went at it around the North Jetty. A couple dozen schoolies and three or four tiny bluefish came to the boat between false dawn and about 7 o’colock. Then the bite laid down. Might have been the tide coming close to high tide, may have been the sun hitting the water, either way a drift that would produce 4-5 fish each time dropped down to 1 or none.
Yesterday at Parking Lot 6 Pete Villeneuve of Lee NH grabbed this nice 21 pounder on worms. And Eric Roach reported that the stripers were running the beach at dark and into the night. Sounds good on the reserve, so crank up your 4 wheeler or walk on in.
