    Heard good reports from Surfland, Crossroads, etc. so went out for the first time this past Sunday. Got a late start so didn't try and get live macks, but just tried with some dead mackerel. Gave it a couple hours around the bottom of the tide without a nibble. Trolled some umbrella rigs around...

    Any general thoughts on where go for bigger stripers around the Merrimack River? I seem to see pretty much three groups of boats around - 1) Those that are fishing near the flats in the no wake zone, 2) those that are fishing right at the mouth between the jetties, and 3) a few that are a bit...

    I've fished the mouth of the Merrimack for years but never before on a weekend...and never again. There must have been 100 boats drifting and anchored up, making the mouth a lot more dangerous, but that's not the worst of it. I witnessed at least a half dozen guys from as many boats keeping...

    I was fishing the mack in Haverhill the other day for small mouth etc. A few people came down and said they had luck on a few stripers a few days prior. When can we expect them really moving up the river from the ocean in this area?
