I visit this site frequently for Q&A, reports, and entertainment at work when the boss is not looking. I visit many of the other state forums as well to gain as much knowledge as possible. I noticed that in the Hudson River forum, they have a continual thread where people post their reports about action all along the vast stretches of the river. I thought it would be nice to do something like that for my home waters on the Merrimack River.
I am of the belief there are plenty of fish in sea for us all to catch. I do not think we need to hide our results from other fisherman in order to continually catch fish. In reality we all learned from someone who was kind enough to share their knowledge and tips with us. This has gone on for generations. So I thought it would be a great idea to build a community thread on here where we can all share our results, tips and tricks in regards to the Mighty Merrimack River.
In order to abide by the forum rules (link to forum rules https://www.stripers247.com/phpBB2/announcement.php?f=22
), you should not share a specific spot along the river. If you are going to do so, please private message that person.
Things to share on this thread can include the following:
-Date & time of fishing activity
-Boat vs Surfcasting
-Methods of catching (artificials, live lining, clamming, chunk, trolling, spinning reel vs conventional, etc)
-Results of your day on the water
I won't be on the water for at least two more weeks probably, but I plan on checking the forum frequently and sharing my results/report once I do. If you are like me and live a fair distance from the Merrimack River, it is nice to know how people are doing before making the investment of time & travel down to the river.
I hope people take a liking to this thread and contribute information as much as they take from it. If we don't share info, this thread will be pointless. On that note, it is time to get back to work here in the office. Remember, a bad day on the water fishing is better than a good day in the office. Good luck to all and tight lines!
