Default 3 Days

Well on Saturday morning I'll be flying in to Logan Airport....I'll be home for around 12-13 days. Can't wait to go fishing.....I'm hoping that my timing was right.....hopefully I catch a good part of the fall run. Because of reasons at work I couldn't really leave anytime in September so the end of August was my last option. The bait stores are gonna be rich because of me....I'll be buying me a lot of live eels.

Anyways I have to go but figured I'd let everyone know the good news....it's been frustrating as hell fishing out here in California. Can't wait to get into some real fish!

think you may just get some good fishing in as the worse should be behind us all by then.

I went out 2 nights ago with some live eels with no luck. I think the new moon had somethigng to do with it... I'm gonna back out tonight with more eels and some mackeral. What's up with eels being so damn expensive?!? Maybe it's just the place where I bought them. Anyways I'll check back in tomorrow morning, hopefully with some pictures.

I've never had luck with live eels in Boston. Not sur why and maybe it's just me. A few times we were fishing live eels and mackeral chunks and got bass on the chunks. In the cape they work great. I'd like to hear how you do out there. I'll be going out Friday night and plan to try to use a few eels again.

No luck with the eels but we picked up a skate with the mackerel.....We fished from around 10-1 AM and called it a night becuase it was a bit windy and kinda cold too. I'm gonna try to head out again tonight....or maybe even today. Next week I will be heading down the cape in search of the big one....maybe eels will work better down there then up here in Boston.

Did that Cali weather get in your blood?

Fishing around the Cape has been a bit slow from shore lately. Water is pretty warm. Give me a shout when you're ready to come down and see if we can't hook up at one of my spots.

booooooo.. left at the time you shoulda been fishin dem eels harder into the morning. i don;t know if anyone will get fish cep't that early am pre dawn time. i know however tonight into tomorrow morning should really be good. best in a whole month. don;t give up. just get a jacket. you may only get one or two but have to be on the alert as they will come in. at slack take a doubled small paper bag and put a 2 3 oz 4 oz weight on your line and place it in the bag, add some chunks and guts into the bag and tie the top closed with line. (weight size will be 2 oz plus whatever weight of bait in bag)cast it out gingerly and wait 20 min and with a violent jerk pop the bag open as it will be soaked and pliable. all the inside will be left at the bottom and form a bottom current slick and may improve your odds of a fish. reel in the remainder of the bag and untie

I'd hate to waste a night on the water cuz it was too cold.....bring some warmer stuff to wear! Remember more is more when it comes to fishin....my truck is redonculous with crap, but I got what I need to go out and stay out. Get back out there Brian and gear up son good luck!

Hey I can handle the cold....but my friends are another story. I'm not gonna lie though.....I don't mind the warm summer nights in Souther Cali. I've only been fishing three times since I've got back which is pathetic. I should be heading down the cape in a day or two....looks like it will be my last chance at ANY fish. The other day I was on my buddies boat and after 20 minutes of trolling one line got cut by a passing boat and the other line got spooled. I'll check in again soon....the next couple of nights I'm gonna try really hard to get some fishing time in.
