Mike Smulax drove up from Rhody for an evening of bass fishing, unfortunatly, it was not what it's been, A strong N/W wind that tried to repeatedly push me into the mud and the clown and googan show put a dampener on the night...

Fishing the top of the incoming tide, we first got butchered by blues, but then the bass moved in, lending promise to a good outgoing,it took the resident googans 4 nights, but they finaly figured out that the boat making the same run over and over must be doing or seeing something, so they trolled around with their gas motors, their paddles and even dropped anchor right in our path, through it all we still caught a few fish, no real monsters last night, the average fish as about 15 lbs, about 1/2 of what it's been, at one point as Mike struggled to get a fish under control we were circled by a kayak and a 20' center console ( of coarse trolling with the big motor) how he got the fish away from those two clowns is still a mystery... Shortly after that incedent the wind began to howel in ernest, I was no longer able to control the boat under electric power and the water was getting skinny, the risk of becoming grounded became real so I terminated the trip, thanks for coming down Mike, I owe ya a better trip.... here's a few pics of mikes fish...

50.... I wasnt going to go down, the ocean still had a S/E swell from the days "sea breeze" but with a land breeze and rising water I carfully picked my way down the beach...

The trip was worth it...

The biggest fish was 51", my normark scale is only capable of 50 lbs and it bottomed it out to a flashing 50...she wasnt alone, she had company in the high thirties and low 40's

Here is a few Pics of some Stripers caught aboard the "HappyAngler." The first evil looking dude is me Capt-n Happy. The second dude is my Brother Mike. The third is Scott and the last is my duck hunting buddies Woody and Allan. Woody Allen I don't think so.......

Had a chance to get out with a buddy last night and drown a few eels in the Merrimack River. The action got hot just before and at top of the tide.
Too bad that came at 2 AM. If we didn't have to work today I am sure we would have stayed and seen the sunrise.
Doing a repeat with Captain Danny Friday night into Saturday morning. Guaranteed we will see daybreak on Saturday.
The water temp in the river at 0900 was 74 degrees. When we left 58 degrees. The sea lice came in like grains of salt. No pogies to report but we did see a lot 2" to 3" bait in the spotlight beam.
We both noted that the fish we caught were very skinny.

Here's the captain with his best of the night. 36"


I topped out with a 40"


Dan, we had the scrimmage last night. Game day is Friday. Can't wait.

Have you ever had one of those hunting or fishing partners where good times are bound to happen? I have one, Captain Danny.

Captain Danny invited me to share his boat for an all night fishing trip for striped bass on the Merrimack River last night. I would have needed a pen and paper to keep track of the size and weight of the fish we caught.
I do know we boated 8 fish of which 7 were keepers. Below is a recap of the night in pictures .

Coalman got the night started right.


Danny soon followed




Back to Coalman




To Danny


Highlight of the evening was Captain Danny's 46" 34 lb striper.




The majority of the fish were 34" to 38". The 34 pounder lives to be caught another day.
Thanks Captain Danny

It has been a good season for us on the Mack. All those schoolies we use to chase back in the early 90's have grown up. We have also grown up. Along with that comes some gray hair. But the methods and techniques learned so long ago are still paying off.
The wind was our enemy last night keeping the bass tight to the bankings.
3 fish, two keepers. All released to dual again.

46" 32 lbs


43" 28 lbs


I would like to thank Captain Gary for sharing his boat with me.
