Default 7/19/09 report

Week Ending 7.19.09

Well it has been two week since my last report. Finally the weather has cleared and we have had some hot sunny summer days. The fishing has been mainly good with 15-25 fish caught on most trips, every so often though we get a slower trip with only 8-10 fish. Some times the tides aren’t right, or the wind is blowing in the opposite direction than the current or maybe an impending or just passing storm has turned them off a bit. Lots of factors affect things but whether we catch a lot or only a few fish with the right attitude we can have a great trip either way.
We caught a number of keepers the last few weeks with Friday, July 17th probably the best with 3 keepers on the morning trip and one in the afternoon. The big fish of the day was 33” with a 29” fish hooked as we were reeling in the bigger one. Just goes to show as I tell my guests, try to keep lines in the water while we are fighting a fish.
Also over the last two weeks we have caught a few eels, big ones, up to about 3 feet. Not my favorite and certainly not something we try for. We also caught a few blue fish and had a few others bite off as well.
On Sunday, I went out with my wife. It was a beautiful day, and lots of boats were out midday. We anchored up outside of the channels and did some bottom fishing on a rock pile. The cunners (little bottom fish with sharp teeth) were everywhere but I also managed to catch 4 sea bass. They are great eating but not plentiful in NH. As the summer gets on we usually catch one or two on a trip but I thought I would specifically target them and we did ok in a couple of hours.
I have a number of open dates (mainly midweek) over the next few weeks. Get in touch if you want a fun filled time on the water catching striped bass.
Regards, Capt. Joel
