Great day fishing in the Merrimac river. 30+ striper and some blues mixed in. Nothing really big (27 the biggest) but it was great to just start catching fish again. Used herring and mackeral, they ate every piece of bait we had on board by the end of the day. The last half of the outgoing tide seemed to produce the most fish. One of these day i'll get some pictures like the rest of you guys and post them. I've been in such a dry spell lately I didn't even bring the digital with me this time
sorry for such a late response i missed this post. got it set up to alert by email now. cool.
High tide on that monday was at about 1:00pm. We got about 6 fish before the tide flooded then we took a break for lunch. Fished the outgoing till almost low tide so most of the fish were taken between 4:30 and 6:30pm last few hours of the outgoing.
p.s. that was the last good day I've had since. Been out about 4 more times a few days and few nights. Nothing to really write about on those trips. A few skunks even.
