Weekend of the 10th

Weekend of the 10th

     Well we had some big swells this past Friday night (last time I listen to NOAA), but tht didn’t stop the buggie guys from fishing. They did get off the beach for the night and stay at Lot 1 for safety but were back on the beach in the am. It wasn’t as “hot” as the holiday weekend, but most caught fish. Again worms reign supreme with clams coming in second. We heard of a lot fish just under and just over legal (24″-30″) and the occasional bigger one 34″+. Just came back from a walk on the beach (Sunday night), and there are two groups of hardy souls out there. The breeze is up and the night looks to be a bit chilly, but they were waiting for the sun to go down and see what happens.

     Well, the river has finally cleared up a bit because they caught some fish (stripers) at the mouth from the boats Saturday and Sunday during the low tide. Saturday morning MIke Light , in his boat off the front beach (by us) caught some bluefish while trolling along the oceanfront.

     That sums up the weekend with what we know. Anybody else got something to tell………………………

    Many came up empty on Lot 3 during the day on Saturday..it was pretty quiet..in fact I did not see anyone out of 15 “rods catch a fish”. Today, I fished lot 6, not many fishing…water filthy dirty, Four guys fishing (one started at 6:30 AM,,the others around 9:30 AM….out of 4 fisherman…only one 15″ fish caught. DEAD..boring fishing.

    Fished off the refuge Saturday from 6:45 am til noon. We managed 4 fish. 3 stripers to 27″ and my buddy scored a 37″ 22lber all on clams. It wasn’t fast and furious action but there are fish around .

    I fished just south of lot 3 on Saturday, high to low, and caught 8 schoolies. So it wasn’t that slow.

    I fished off the beach (in my boat) Saturday morning and only nailed one bluefish (about 10 pounds) on a live mack. Not much else doing the rest of the morning. A pretty big parade of trollers out there although not many folks out early. Marked lots of fish in the river Saturday out to the inlet and Sunday in the other direction heading up to Amesbury. If the big swells stick around with the latest storm heading up the coast, I will probably switch to flyfishing in the river this week

    I was one of the trollers Sat, two blues to show for it. Lots and lots of BIG marks on the bottom @40′ so they are still there.

    Drove on beach Monday morning, between lot 2 and 3 access points. One small one just before high tide and one 34″ just past high tide. Sunny and hot.

    Fished from 6 AM to 3 PM Sunday. After loading up on mack’s, we headed to the “parking lot” for tuna. Never saw a hook up! Barely any birds, either. Went back to the river mouth to fish for blues and stripers and only ended up with 2 short stripers, both on live macks. With the astranomical tides (outgoing) and onshore SE wind, the river mouth got quite nasty as the tide dropped. A lot of rockin’ and rollin’ for pratically no results. Great day to be on the water, none the less!!
