All the schoolies you could want in Boston. Fished south coast yesterday with decent numbers of Albies. Small bass and blues were abundant

finally getting back out there (daycare), albie bite has been really good. My buddy today said a year ago this week he had a red hot bass bite in a certain spot. Shot over there around 10:30 this morning. Bright sun, flat calm, and the bass were there. Got on a wolf pack right away and bailed fish from 15 to 25# on topwater. Got to love the patterns of these fish.

They make their own brand twist lock hooks but you could use another mfg's twist lock hooks as well. Thread them on and rig weedless style like other soft plastic baits.

Clammer this is what has worked for me.. cast in them in a feed and a head of them cast placement seems to do the trick (not Always ) i dont twitch the Albie snaxs just find the speed they like and just reel ( some times i need to tweek the hook so it doesn't spin on the retrieve )

if they are coming at me ill cast behind them and reel thru that works for me also ..

coyotes...ducks and seals ..OH my!

spent the darkness hours of the incoming along the PI refuge trolling eels in the suds and tossing a darter into the sand working it back to the boat...narry a tap.. hit the river for an hour of the turn...more of the same .. the marshes were alive with ducks and the coyotes yapping in the back ground made my spine tingle...glad I was in the boat.. as I entered the channel on the way home I saw numerous seals in the moonlight... there haven't been many around all summer ...not like in the past..not the case any longer... tonight I plan to swim a plug in the rips in the river mouth on the incoming...Saturday I'll get some macs at day break and swim them along the rocks to the north... that'll probably be my last boat trip as it has to be off the dock by the 15th...made a 22 mile round trip last night..never saw another vessel or fisherman..1/2 the boats from my marina are already out... half of them are winterized and shrink wrapped...
water temp is down to 56... air temp 44 here this morning... making me think about venison and ice fishing!

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Small stuff

ran a few plugs on wire along the jetties and over the shoals last night on the start of the incoming... I picked up a few small fish( on a white bottle)far back from the mouth on the outer bar just as the rips turned frothy...the fish were there for about 20 minuets or so before they dissappeard..no great shakes.. all in the 26 - 30" range... nothing in along the jetty's or inside the mouth... these were back a few hundred yards from the entrance... my guess was a quick pit stop on their way south...

I finished the tide with eels up inside where I fished the night before... I hit a couple of rock piles up river... sadly.. they were barren... only the seals were inhabiting them.... the wind finally drove me off the water as the tide ebbed...same result as the night before...

A good run is better than a bad stand!

white bottle strikes again

the fish ( 10 lb class) showed on the same bar again last night... I hit them a little earlier in the tide last night than the night before... I think it is about the tidal flow around the bar..it lasted about the same amount of time but I think the difference was the build in the height and how it affected the flow... I made passes at the south jetty with no love... a screaming S/W wind made fishing the North side unsafe... didn't eel last night.. I would have went down the beach but the wind would have made it an exercise in futility...those fish are going going somewhere.. I'm sure now it will be along the beach... I keep hoping some larger ones will be ahead or behind... so far it hasn't been the case...

A lookdown! Netted one of those in the Carolinas back in the 70s. So now they're up here, eh? Ahem, and now it's in the 80s in October.
No, there's no evidence for global warming-it's a Chinese hoax!

water was pretty warm last weekend - with air temps in the 70's this past week (where I am) ... gotta wonder if that's gonna stick around for a while.

Boy if anyone has kids or grandkids in the Plymouth mass area, the inner bay is just loaded with bait and schoolies and you can't help but catch. Launched at Stevens Field at 10:30, about 50 fish later the yak was back on the trailer at 1pm and I was heading home. I could have stayed and caught as many as I wanted, but it was hot and I'd had my fun on freshwater gear. All on a 6" bubblegum jerkbait, fished weightless on top with a 5/0 owner 90 degree hook and screw lock bait holder. I had to trim the tip once, but with small bass they last.

Like the fishing we had at a certain winter spot you know of, but all topwater and crazy. When those toggy start biting you let me know, I'd take a drive to have a shot at bringing home 6 of those yummy fish. I want to get out once with you before the season ends.

Got to the harbor this am around 6. Big peanut blitz all around my moored boat. Caught several small bass to make the dog happy. Flew down the islands, sunrise behind me. Beautiful morning. Arrived at "my" spot only to find a derby dick anchored throwing live pogies. Cut in down tide and made a drift. Had a 20ish # fish eat a danny 50 yards along. Was missing an entire 1/2 of its upper lip from an old hook injury. Fish looked fat and healthy regardless. I sent it on its way. Proceeded to cast for the next 6 hours into some of the best striped bass water in the world. Caught one more schoolie. No bait, no albies, no birds, no small fish. Ugh. Returned to the harbor. Bass were no longer showing but plenty of cormorants were still working. My skiff was covered with an inch of guano. Double ugh. Still beats the canal.
