We dunt nid no stinkin grill!
This is perfect because I had planned on taking my younger cousin (15) out Striper fishing to get his mind of some troubles at home. I think it would be a very positive experience for him to meet and learn from some of you guys! Ed if you could email or call me with details that would be appreciated.

Good to hear this thing is a go! Hope to read some reports and see photos! I'm still fishing vicariously through all your experiences!
Too bad Floatsum isn't mobile yet, hope you get back soon!
And me? I hope to get out for at least a couple of hours in my neck of the woods!
Jeff

Jim,
I spoke with Gunny on the phone this morning. He was watching a pretty good blitz going on near where he works and had a couple ideas of some alternative locations near the upper end of the bay that are very promising. He'll be sending out an email tonight

Talking to Backbay yeasterday the location looks to be the Brayton point Power plant beach. Those that have my number call me, if not PM me for it. I will be getting directions from Jay.
On my way home the area of the blitz at the beach I passed in the morning was lit up times 10 in the afternoon on the opposite side of the channel out of reach. It was mixed blues and bass from what I could see. Birds by the thousands indicated blues chopping the bait on top.
The area gets wall to wall with less than desireable fishing partners in the evening accourding to the reports I got after wanting to meet at the original spot. From what I understand it would be tough to get home after someone steals the wheels off your truck to cash in the aluminum from your rims.

Good luck & good times guys!
Wish I could join you!

I've got a green light from the Doc on 1 1/2 hr standing / walking MAX, and 15 minute drives MAX. The ball & chain is ridding herd like there's nothing else to do.
I've yet to wet a line this year. Fresh or salt.
If all goes right, in a few weeks I'll be doing my best to make up for lost time.
Good luck & Enjoy. Hope to hear / see some great reports.
Gary

I hooked up with the mini gathering around 11:30pm (kids had trouble getting to sleep... argh) Bunker were in thick,,, busting all over the surface of the Taunton River and easy to snag. Live lined and drifted chunks for several fish. BackbayJ and Jon006's cousin Kyle picked up several fish, I had a 30 incher, and Jon006 caught this one for dinner...



Nice night to be fishing with the guys!

Next stop Saco!!!

It was a great night, my cousin had a great time which is all I really cared about, It was nice to fish with a 15 yo kid that didn't complain once and really enjoyed himself. The fish I caught was given to my uncle and grandmother, im sure they will enjoy it.

Jacob...you deseve an extra thank you for the help, as once again I wasn't prepared to keep that fish, the list of gear to purchase next just keeps growing.

On another note, I was kinda disapointed at the turn out for this one although it was a short notice gathering it would have been nice if some of the folks that said they were going to make it did, or made it and stayed instead of leaving without saying anything.

Anyways, for the folks that didn't make it, you missed out...
