  1. Plenty of schoolies on the salmon river. I had a 30 fish day there last Friday all on small soft plastic shads. Good luck.
  2. I was there this morning for the outgoing tide. Nothing. Went to Portsmouth and picked off a couple schoolies on top water in the surf
  3. Thanks rst3
  4. Wow! You guys are brutal. I’m not young anymore I have health issues and walking the distance that it would take to cover the entire area until I found a productive spot is impossible for me. Just was hoping to find someone who would share their knowledge of this area to help me out a bit. But, thanks for your input.
  5. Hi guys and gals, I’m hoping that maybe some of you could share any information, stories, tips, experiences you might have on fishing the Parker River Refuge like your most productive spots, best tides, days of nights, lures? I’ve never fished there yet probably because I don’t like paying a cover charge to fish, but this may change soon since I’ve heard it’s a productive area. I’m strictly catch and release so I won’t be taking any fish from you. I’m just hoping some of you could share your knowledge with me so I could have a starting point to maybe catch the fall run hoping I’m not to late. Thanks

  7. So buddah162 what are the names of these magic baits that can do both?
  8. I’ve been using boot style waders for years and use to cut my skin where the boot meets the neoprene. It’s a easy fix. Just wear a large loose fitting sock and pull them up outside of your pants. I have a pair of socks that almost go up to my knees when I pull them up outside my jeans. If your skin doesn’t touch where the seam is you won’t get cut. You’re welcome lol.
  9. I’ve used these off and on for the past 2 seasons with zero luck. Last night I was reading all the comments on this post and today decided to try them again. So I just got back from Plum Island on the beach side near the rocks and caught about 5 schoolies finally, by ripping them almost as fast as I could through the water. When I slowed down my retrieve enough to still keep the paddle moving I didn’t get one hit. So maybe the trick is to get them moving at a pretty good clip.
  10. I was there again today for the entire outgoing tide on the Salisbury side and saw at least 10 seals. Only caught 3 schoolies all on a white savage gear. I used everything I had from spooks, pencils, SP’s, Al Gag whip it fish and eels. Think it might be time to go out front on the beach and soak some cut bait. Real slow lately.
  11. There are sharks in that river. I saw an 8 footer surface about 10 feet from me Saturday at low tide while I was on the edge of the sandbar. Needless to say between the seals and sharks I got skunked, but I have had some 20 fish outings in late May. Just stay ankle deep and you’ll be fine. Good top water action there when the current slows down.
  12. Does anyone of you have any luck with spooks at night?
  13. So what are your favorite go to lures when fishing at night? Colors, retrieve speed, spooks or poppers, location surf, rivers, jettys.
  14. Arrived at the canal "behind McDonalds" at 8m. I would've been there sooner, but that morning traffic driving through Boston sucks. I fished the area around the Sagamore bridge for about two hours without a bite or a sign of a fish. Plenty of tiny bait along the shoreline staying close to the weeds. I guessing maybe they were small herring fry. I was actually surprised that there were only about 5 other fisherman as far as I could see. Hoping maybe weekdays was the time to go as I have fished much larger crowds early spring in the Merrimack river at Plum Island. Decided to cross over the bridge on the cape side and head east to the jetty area where I didn't fish, but talked to a few fisherman all telling me the fishing has been dead this week. Got in the truck and headed to the railroad bridge down near Bourne. Fished both sides of the bridge for about 4 hours and again not a bite. Only about 5 other fisherman there as well so there was plenty of casting room. Everyone there was getting skunked as well. Decided to head over to the herring run where I fish for another 3 hours without a bite, but there I finally saw some signs of life when occasionally I saw a few schooling busting up those herring fry against the rocks. I was able to reach them with my cast, but they didn't touch anything I threw. Went back to the McDonalds area next to the Sagamore bridge and fished until dark without a sign of a fish. Packed up my stuff and got a burger and soda and headed back to NH. I used almost all of my tackle trying to hook up even once today. Magic Swimmers, Pencils, Jigs, AL Gags, Hogy's. You name it, I threw it. I probably talked to at least 10 different fisherman at each area I fished and all said the fishing has been dead so it was nice knowing it wasn't just me have such crappy luck. Anyway, I thank all of you that sent messages my way. I'll be back eventually. I'm not going to let the canal beat me. Until then it's back to the Maine, NH and Mass coastline and rivers where I know I'll get a few and save on gas. Thanks
  15. Hey Folks, Are there any "slow times" at the Cape Cod Canal as far as fishing pressure goes? I've never fish the canal, but my 16 year old son wants me to bring him so I'm thinking about making the two hour ride down from NH. I've seen tons of pictures of anglers lined up side by side along the rocks and I was hoping there might be slower times when that isn't the case. Maybe, slack tides, weekdays, rain? I'm sure the weekends are the worst and hoping weekdays might be better. I'm thinking night time might be a little less crowded, but we're not looking to fish the middle of the night. My son is a pretty good angler. He can cast a mile and can handle braided line and understands when to cast and where to cast "upstream" when there is other fisherman around. This is a days trip we're planner so hoping for 8 to 10 hours of casting to stripers without to much pressure from other anglers standing 10 feet from us. We don't have bikes so we're looking to park the truck and walk to an area along the bank. Thanks for any help and knowledge you might be willing to shares that could help making this a memorable day.
