I haven't been around here but you should definitely be able to catch some schoolies by now. Check the local rivers and marshes.

I keep trying using rubber shads of different sizes and colors. Cranks baits and plugs. I think the plugs and shads are my favorite beacause when they actually hit it, its like a big explosion. I need to try some blood worms or something also i think. Well I hope i find some soon. I will keep everyone posted.

Hey midcoast, I'd go with sand worms if they're available up there. Bloodworms work well, don't get me wrong, but IMHO they don't work any better......certainly not enough to justify the extra $2-$3/dozen they cost. I've been catching 'em fairly steady with a 7/0 Eagle Claw,18" leader, 5-6 oz. pyramid sinker and a float to keep 'em just off bottom. Nothing of size yet, but as far as consistency, it's been my weapon of choice. I'll probably switch over to clams and/or chunk soon, but for now I'll stick to ole' faithful Good luck, hit 'em hard!!!!

i have a -lot- of hours into this fishing season and it is still not exactly "hot" at my usual spots. i've only caught three fish so far. the bay is still cold. they are around but they don't seem to be thick. maybe this winter i forgot how to fish or they just haven't gotten thick in my normal haunts yet. at least i have gotten a couple, but i'm hoping my luck changes before the gathering. i went to church yesterday for the first time in YEARS and the last prayer of the day was on a projection screen and the background behind the writing was a picture of a guy fishing the shore at sunset. i also happened to be distracted by thoughts of fishing right before that popped up. maybe it's a sign of good things to come.

Haha,,, I sneak shots like that into our slides any time I can, too. I used this photo of bioluminescence (fire in the water) as a background of one of last week's songs.... sparked some interesting discussions after the service, lol.

Hey mainesufcasta (sorry I forgot your name again bro) I was down the beach Saturday afternoon (OOB....with my little one, not fishing unfortunately) and the water was as warm as it's been since I moved up here. I couldn't believe it....usually even on the warmest summer day it's freezing Perhaps signs of even better things to come!!!!

P.S. Come check me in OOB sometime, I dont have any secret spots or anything, but right off the beach has been producing consistently!!!

Well I can dig my own worms thats not a problem and clams also. I have noticed the change in water temp at times through out the tide changes. I wonder what else will follow if we have a hot well go through the whole coast from down south? Well I will try sand worms I suppose thanks for the input keep me posted.
