The bugs are crawling. But ya gutta be where they are. Did the best in deep water. All new shell and some two + pounders. Again today the catch was way better than a pound per trap.
Met Marcus and his brother Paul at Fox Point. Great to finally meet cha Marcus. Hope you had an appetite for the bugs and those livies put a striper or two over the rail.
Spur of the moment decision this evening to drown some slime.
These three dead trees caught my eye on the way out of the river. Hmmmm?

Barely made it under the trestle. Motoring up to WOT I came upon this barge.
They are restoring the oyster beds on Great Bay
Stick spat, stick.
Fishing brook trout style for striped bass. Even the slightest rip flushes bait by hungry gill plates.
An IPhone selfie. 37" bull who got the release of life. Note the circle hook. Reel, reel, reel.
