Default going out tomm. night.

Well, I'm a gonna give her hell tomm. night. Hope to be there by 6:00 or so pm. Look where I want to fish, and set up the GPS to go to those routes when the sun sets. I don't have an electric trolling motor, So I will have to drift areas that I think will be productive.
I don't expect anyone to give out honey holes, but what sort of structure should I shoot for?.
I am undecided on which place to go. Either the Mack or Rye Harbor. I have fished out of the mouth of the Mack about a dozen times. I have never fished up stream of the the Sailsbury boat launch. I have always drifted the "toilet" out to the bouy and back or vice versa in the switch to high.
Rye will be more quiet and the water is a bit cooler, but the few times I fished the area, I had little to no luck.
Is there a 24/7 launch other than the beach in Sailsbury? I would like to try a little up river and I know that you need a season pass in order to fish through the night in Sailsbury. I don't like making the run at night due to all the pots in the way from NH to Mass. So it's either one or the other. and stay there.
Any tips would be appriciated.
Thanks,
Bubba

So you going out alone or are you bringing your friend sally?

You can put in the merrimack at cashman park any time/any tide. It is just upriver from the rt 1 bridge (under which a guy just picked up a 50 lb'r this week) on the newburyport side. Rt 1 south, 1st exit after the bridge turn right go past Leary's Liquor take a right just before the towle bldg. Just pay attention to the tide when launching.

If you want to drift, I like the edge of joppa on the drop (after 11) from the yacht club/treatment plant. though fri night maybe a lot of anchored boats. You can try front beach on the rise or hunt around badgers/toothpick. Or try the Plum Island side across from the toothpick there is a channel with mussel beds on either side which leads to the flats/woodbridge island which will turn up some bass on the rise. Watch your chart/ area can be tricky.

Good luck

Take back what I said, see rocs post about the mac, places i mentioned are no secrets and will be swarming.

Rye will be a better choice, or Hampton...

Good luck

1 guy gets a 50 and the whole world of googan nation descends on it like the black plague. And people wonder why I say, "in the ocean" when I do occaisionally weigh a large fish.

Well, I went out of rye. Looked around in the daylight and decided to troll for blues for a while. We ran into sporatic schools and had some fun. Fished around rye for the linesiders but came up empty handed. We had a good time.

I don't like the mack for the same reason everyone else does. Too much traffic and too many idiots. I fish it only due to the fact the fish are there. I have never really enjoyed a day on that river. There is always some idiot out there that ruins it for me. Plus I don't like crowds.

I am new to striper fishing but not new to boating and fishing. I have fished since I was 6 and have never stopped loving it.

The googan term applies to fresh water fishing as well. The fact is a "googan" to me is some moron with no common sence, no sportsmanship, and no regard for anyone but himself. The fishing world is loaded with them, and like the dogfish, we have to battle through them to get to our quarry at hand. I will get better, I will post some cows, but I will not do it by stealing someone's honey hole or cutting someone off. Knowledge and experience is the only way to become a better fisherman. If more people challanged themselves rather than ride on somebody's coat tails, then there would be no googans, just fellow sportsman.

Peace.

I thought many times about going out of Rye Harbor and out to the Isle of Shoals. It's only about a 4 mile run from there and I hear the fishing is pretty good. I'm wondering if it's a good place for Cod and Haddock in the Spring???

Zeema- you could find much info in rocs post when he posted
in the spring about his whale cods they caught. It wasn't
even that far out... IOS was probably a couple more miles...
I think you may have read that post anyhow.

I must say that the overwhelming news out of the River
and the rte 1 bridge hasn't really affected the traffic. I've
seen it a lot worse.

Was out on Saturday night...You'd figure it would be a googan
fest...Or at least a few more boats than usual.

Not! I also chatted with other boaters adjacent to my
boat. One guy behind me lives on the boat during the
summer. We both face the Rt 1 bridge and train trussel.

Traffic has not been bad at all. It was much busier in July.
Once news comes out in print its usually a few weeks old.

It was, IMO, pretty light for chukleheads Sat PM/Sun. AM

I didn't have the same issues as others have mentioned.
I think Zeem had problem though. Some centerconsole came
too close. Glad my boat isn't a CC.

I made a few comments to my buddies saying that
there was very little traffic in comparison to other nights.
What a nite on the water for us... We had a decent number
of fish.. We averaged about 10-15 each(3)...

Don't have the pic yet of my buddies 38". It was pretty lean
though. I've had shorter fish a weigh that one. Still a very
nice fish though. Was my buddies 1st ever striper! Not
bad for his 3rd cast of the evening. I'll get the pic in here
soon.

Here's a pic of one of the aligator Blues we caught 33". Big teeth! Was a great fight for him. He enjoyed it.
