Just came back.  No seaweed, but also no hits.  First time I’ve been completely skunked not even a bite.

Getting ready to head out now. Didn’t make it out last night. Glad to hear there’s no sea weed at least.

Nothing last night. Like Scott no seaweed but no fish either. Had one about rip the rod out of my hand around 3am but that was the only sign of life all night. Expected a better night with the cloud cover and the full moon on the way out but no dice. Did (accidentally) manage to scare the s*** out of some kids who didn’t realize I was out on a rock right in front of them so at least there was a bit of entertainment.

Weeds from hell, not just that monkey fur red stuff but kelp type on crap that rolled up everything 2.5 hours, 1 retrieve took 15 minutes, I didn’t see the weeds and the beach is clean. Large clams all over in shallow water. At least the cigar was great and no one around at 4:30 am.

Got out this weekend and got my first keeper of the year with my son.  It was an epic battle but psyched to finally get one after many tries on the pogy schools.  Still a lot pogies showing in my area and sea weed wasn't an issue but I was in a boat.

from what I've heard they are pretty far up the coast but I fish in Casco Bay mostly.

Yeah me too. Southern ME for me.

Caught 3 fish between 7-9 yesterday evening. A nice 30”er a 22 and 15. Macs n clams. Macs seem to be getting the bigger bites.

I've been inland for a couple of weeks, but that won't last much longer.   I am curious if folks are finding mackerel?  They were pretty scarce earlier in the month.

Basically every bait shop is out if that tells you anything

I've been getting them every time I hit the local jetty. Just not the best numbers.

I am hearing more and more of bite offs, about that time to see a charge of blues. They just dont show themselves like they used to when around.
