Re: how was your year?
It was another very good seasson north of Boston in June and july... I boated and released two more 50lb+ fish and saw several others over 50, including a 61 caught in the same area.. the fishing was good on the Full moon in August but spotty in between... constant winds made beach fishing from a small boat difficult most of the summer... the fall was a dissapointment, Fishing was good early in September, but the size was small ( by my standards, most fish were high teen class), but was not as good as usual on either moon.. again, wind made fishing some areas difficult, the fish may have been there, I just couldnt get to them... for all practical purposes, it was over ( especialy for large) by the first week of October.... October 8th I pulled a 14 hour marathon, Leaving the dock alone at midnight, fishing until 2PM the following afternoon ( I'm getting to old for this $#!+).... I covered about 15 miles of coast line from Norht of the New Hampshire boarder all the way to Gloucester... tossing eels, and trolling plugs...I hit every rock pile, sand bar and reef i know in between... I never had a hit.. saw a bird take wing or marked a baitfish... tired, cold and hungry... instead of driving to the dock.. i drove straight to the boat ramp... walked back to the marina, got my truck, hooked up the trailer and called it a season.... I wrapped and witerized the boat the next day.... I've been turning plugs ever since.
