  1. I have family/friends in mass so I wasn’t just going for the fishing. But yes, I should be able to get down after work some days this fall
  2. Last night I got my first striper from Maine waters. After living in Maine for most of the last 5 years, I finally got on the board in this state. I never put in the time or effort to find any spots in Maine, its always been easier to hit the spots I know in MA. Anyways, stopped in Scarborough on my way back to Augusta last night and finally managed my first bass in Maine. It was a schoolie, but it felt good to get this skunk off and I'm ready to put in some time here come fall!
  3. The running and gunning off a popular beach last week was nuts..
  4. Family vacay this weekend, sitting on state beach yesterday and bones were blowing up off and on for a couple hours. Waded out pretty deep to the sandbar and got 3 good casts into them but couldn't hook up. Went back this am and there were probably 20 boats running and gunning up and down the beach but less fish.
  5. are there mackerel around? Thinking of trying to get some to liveline off the kayak around beverly harbor tomorrow early am
  6. got on the board yesterday with a couple micros in salem
  7. bump, someone sell me a kayak!
  8. Looking for a fishing kayak, hoping to spend less than $500. The closer to Salem, MA the better! Let me know what ya got, Thanks
  9. throughout American history there is a strong reactionary theme. We move a bit left, we go right. And so on. trump was a reaction to Obama, its only natural that there is a strong left reaction to Trump.
  10. nah. Im sure shes just running for the fun of it and wasting everyones time
  11. A little bit of an update for those interested in the nitty gritty - MA state Rep. Thomas Stanley (9th Middlesex) has introduced three bills regarding striped bass this session. 1. H.D. 198: An Act relative to the conservation of striped bass 2. H.D. 199: An Act relative to the conservation of Atlantic striped bass 3. H.D. 201: Resolve protecting the legal harvest of striped bass I don't believe full text of these bills is available yet, but its something to follow!
  12. well this thread was specifically about striped bass. There are plenty of other places to talk about climate change/human impact on nature as a whole.
  13. I'm not one to doubt the impacts of humans on our climate/ nature, but I dont think de icing chemicals hurt fish stocks as quickly or are as damaging as the amount of overfishing that goes on. Sure its a factor, but it will probably be a while longer until we can point towards one small factor such as that as affecting fish stocks, especially striped bass. Overfishing is an immediate issue that could literally be changed with legislation
  14. sure thats a factor, but I seriously doubt the impact is anywhere near the impact of overfishing.
  15. buncha snowflakes in this thread am I original or what???
