The F*#@ing Wind

The F*#@ing Wind

What a crazy week with all the wind we have been getting in the area. Some days were hard to fish the mouth of the Merrimac River so a lot of people fished the oceanfront or the southern end of the island. But the fish still were biting. Overall despite the wind it has been a good week of fishing Plum Island and the surrounding area. Yesterday we had a few people that did very well on the oceanfront just up from the store on bait. Worms and clams have been the bait of choice so far.

This week has been great for fishing the low tides in the mouth of the river. On the days that there wasn’t a wind issue the bite was hot hot hot. Many fishermen came back to tell us they caught well over 2 dozen fish on soft plastics, buck tail jigs, and even a few metals are coming into play.

Tom Barnes came over the dunes the other day at about 5:30 am. The birds were working the water, diving for bait fish and creating a little frenzy. Tom threw on a bucktail jig, but just couldn’t get them to bite on it. Tom dug into his bag and came up with an old Sluggo. He used that, caught about 20 fish in the 15″-24″ range. The sluggo kept ripping, kept getting shorter every time he reattached tot he jig head, but it kept catching fish and that was just fine!

The jig that wouldn’t give up!

But anyways, the weekend looks brighter and less windy so we will see you on the island!

      Robin, I certainly agree with your point but completely disagree with how you made it.

    Just be thankful for an honest fishing report. Kay would be proud of the job they are doing. I am.
