had a fun evening down in Duxbury last night...

My salt water trips have not been anywhere as numerous as years past, so when I decided to go last night for the high tide I was hoping to catch at least one fish.

 

Seems like the bait was moving last night and the shadow from the PP bridge created a gauntlet that these minnows had to cross to get out into the bay.

Although they were pretty much all schoolies, there were fish just about all the way across the bridge, from shore to shore.

I had to up my lure size to prevent the micros from getting hooked on almost every cast.

Even after putting on a 7" slug-go on a 1/2 oz. jig I was still getting some small bass, but not as many as when I used a 3" storm shad.

Oh, and there were small blues in the mix as well, so you never knew what you had until you pulled it up to unhook it.

 

After a couple dozen fish I decided to head home so I wouldn't be a zombie here at work today.

 

I will definitely plan some more outings before the season fully ends....

Not to worry, as my fishing fix is a tear round event.

Ice fishing, surf casting, kayak fishing and even some shore fishing (for carp)....except for skipping some night kayak fishing chances (EEE threat) it's a pretty well-rounded year.

Spotburn. 

Yeah.....like nobody within 50miles hasn't ever heard of Duxbury or Duxbury Beach?

Calling this a spot burn is like saying "the canal" or "the Charles river" are spot burns.

I've *heard* of every single inch of the entire east coast. Telling the entire world that you were catching dozens of fish in one particular 100 foot spot is spotburning. Maybe in the future just mention "a bridge on the south shore", instead of the exact one. I mention this because in another thread, a guy who seems to fish the PP bridge regularly said that the bucket brigade had overtaken the area, taking schoolies to their trunk.

"South Shore" is sufficient.

 

Mentioning the exact bridge is ludicrous. Now that the gig is up for the bucket brigade, does anyone think they'll be leaving anytime soon? The answer is no. Once a spot is blown to poachers, they return again and again.
