30 Sep Thursday, September 30th. FOGGED IN!!!
Well the fog has certainly rolled in this am. Billy was down the refuge with about a dozen other people this morning and reported “nothing”. The weather is perfect: a nice breeze from the southeast, a bit of a chop on the water, and dim light. So where are they? Honestly, we don’t know. Jimmy from Lowell has just arrived in the store to tell us that ganets are diving into the water off the oceanfront. Maybe there are fish under that pushing bait in. Let’s hope so. Will try to update later if we hear of anything. TallJeff, how was Hailey’s first day of fishing? Start them young! But Seriously, where was my report yesterday???
But we do have one positive report to give. Yesterday afternoon a fisherman came into the shop and reported fish off the jetties. He was fishing off the jetties, the incoming tide and casting a “mackerel” top water lure on the ocean side of the rocks. He showed Mike a picture of a 38″ fish that he caught and released. Sorry TJ and Toby, this happening when you guys decide to hit the beach on the oceanfront. But the jetties would have been no place for Hailey!
Well we’ll see how the day goes………………………………………

Fished lot 3 yesterday and I got 2 skate. Out of 15 fisherman, I saw one blue. Jeff’s little girl did great all day! Here I thought the jetty was all done. Might do that next…..

Fished Cape Ann Wednesday a.m. (hour and a half before & after surise). Caught one schoolie stripper and a couple of blues; the blues were in the 8 to 10 lb range). Going to head out again Friday or Saturday morning, will let you know if the fishing keeps up.

Sounds like things are closing up early this season.

Hailey wanted to let everyone know that she was disapointed she didnt catch any fish but had fun on the beach.. She said she might have to go with some professional fisherman next week who catch fish though unlike her dad.. headin out sun might try bass rocks/cape ann (parking? dirt lot?) or any suggestions? ( firstname.lastname@example.org) canal im sure will be packed due to striper cup.
