Thumbs down Merrimack: Wacky for Mackies

So I'm out at breaking rocks with five million other boats.. all anchored to keep from coasting into one another.. except for one boat..

Very odd.. three guys on a boat.. all looked as if they'd been fishing a LONG time, but acted like amateurs.. I watched as they motored within 10 feet of the boat behind me as soon as that boat was catching mackerel..

I was sure glad I wasn't THAT guy...

Well, as soon as I caught some macks.. over they came.. practically on top of my boat.. over and over again.. drift.. near miss.. drift.. near miss.. until they finally anchored within spitting distance.. no kidding..

The driver has one arm.. maybe I was in a handycap spot.. who knows..

Weird day out there..

bunch of yoyo's

I tried to fish in that rediculous cluster of madness this past Friday. All the sonar pings spooked those macks in good shape. Moved north/northeast about 4 miles and loaded up. Well worth the trip. The Merrimack is completely out of control. I am going to spend the rest of the season trying to find better fishing other places.
It happens all the time-some of the time....
But not most of the time
