  1. We got into 10+pounders on Monday.
  2. Anyone ever have success smelt fishing during the day?
  3. Has anyone had luck targeting tautog recently? I'd like to take my son out tomorrow and see if we can scare a few up. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Boats been in the shop since late June. MIL has been in ICU since late June. Getting the boat back tomorrow and was thinking of splashing in Sandwich. Haven't fished at all due to MIL and wife going to ICU every weekend. Can a peaceful man find a spot to sit in CCB tomorrow or is it truly as bad as it sounds with the run and gun crew?
  5. Thanks a ton. I'll report back if I get lucky.
  6. Hello All, I'm flying in to the area next week and was wondering if there are any wade options up near Annapolis. Are the rockfish around this time of year? Is there any state parks that allow fishing? Is anyone running any guided trips this time of year? I've never fished down there and am interested to wet a line. Thanks a ton, Andy
  7. Not to broaden this beyond the scope of the canal but I had an encounter early this summer that just left me depressed. Was in my home river on the South Shore taking my boat out to the harbor and I see dead stripers. Rounding the bend I see a fleet of kayaks. As if the dead gut hooked stripers weren't enough (most people would be ashamed and perhaps slink away to be less noticeable) I get an aggressive wave to move on. It was the "get out of our way, we're fishing" wave. I was so caught off guard I just kept going although I cut back the throttle to dead slow. Still pissed I didn't stop and ask if these googans have any clue what they're doing. The lack of respect for the fish and the lack of respect for the river killed me. I have pictures of me in this river when I was less than 1. I caught my first striper in this river at maybe 8 rowing around in an old life boat my Dad gave me. As cheesy as it sounds, the river is a part of me and I've been on it, in it, around it for over 40 years. Last summer I saw some idiot posting to instagram videos of him throwing cocktail blues sky high. He was apparently pissed that the blues "ruined his day fishing". And had such lack of self-awareness that he made this public. WTAF!!!? Perhaps the issues at the canal are symptomatic of a larger problem. Too many a-holes fishing. Imagine this level of abuse amount hunters during deer season.
  8. Thanks a ton everyone.
  9. Hello All, Can smelt be caught during the day around Boston? Certainly sounds like most fish for them at night but curious about day time. Anyone finding them locally? Thanks for the help.
  10. Seems like a blue runner. Did you catch this near Bourne recently? Or within 10 miles of there?
  11. Find a small harbor on the South Shore closer to Boston than Plymouth. Anything from a crippled herring or 5/8 oz epoxy to sebiki rig will do. It got cold this week, so they could have moved on. My data is from Sunday but extending back to first week in September. You'll see them blitzing but when no surface action they'll still be cruising below the surface feeding. They move fast but are all over. Also, small albies (14" vs 12" bones) there too. They run in different schools but large schools nonetheless.
  12. Are you finding these larger ones on the South Shore?
  13. I aggree, show them some respect. I have a hard spot for the behavior of “catch them all”. I caught 5 yesterday and it was fun. I could have fished for another hour and landed a hundred but I was content with 5 and the thrill of catching these warm water fish so far north lasted me all day.
  14. What were you using when you caught them?
  15. Anyone know if the whales are still there? Might take kids out to see if so.
