Sorry for the late posts. Had a few storms, plus some repairs on the boat. Fish are still around, but have entered summer so the beach is tough fishing. Buy a kayak as those folks can get out to the big fish. Still loads of fish around, live mackerel best bet, dead macs next, vertical jigging then umbrella rigs. Same old spots but a school of rally big fish way down the ocean backside.

Holy raindrops Batman, it’s raining and blowing a storm out there. Winds steady at plus 25 to 30, gusts higher, not a nice day.
Last few days fishing has been “ok”. Not lights out, big fish as in the previous week, as the fish have started to spread around and take refuge in their summer secret spots. However, we have been getting keepers on our trips, just not every fish being 20 pounds. Live lining live mackerel number one choice, deep umbrella rigs next, and then I would say vertical jigging – they all work but if you want to ensure getting some dinner, I would go this way.
I have to say, today was the best day this year so far, and probably in the top 10 days ever. Weather was perfect, calm seas, not a ton of boats, fish from top to bottom, and all big fish. Great folks on board as well!
Fabulous spring fishing continues, Long Pt all the way to the backside. Fish still big, average size over 20 lbs. Bluefish starting to show up.
Very good day of fishing on Tuesday. Heavy fog in the morning made things challenging, but the fish were stacked and fell to vertical jigs. The afternoon saw even more fish on the sounder, but they didn’t go for vertical jigging. We went out and got some live mackerel and that did the trick, multiple hookups with fish in the twenty pound range. Did lose a lot of gear on the lobster pot trawls though, have to restock for today’s trip.
Yesterday saw a bunch of fish around, scattered from Wood End all the way around Race Pt. Fish were finicky again, were biting between tides but at slack high and low just would not bite. Tons of fish on the fish finder but very few would take the lure during those times, even trying a wide variety of lures. I saw fish come to the top once, but they quickly went down, key for that is to be out there before 6 a.m.
Excellent Spring fishing continues. Up in the Race Pt and Herring Cove area yesterday there were thousands of fish, but most of them were smaller sized, although we managed to get some 28 to 32 inch fish on both trips.
Billingsgate Shoal was hit hot hot. Supposedly the fourth day in a row. Large stripers all over the place, caught on all methods – live mackerel, vertical jig, casting, and umbrella rigs.
A really great weekend of fishing, which I missed because I was out of town! Ton of big stripers were caught from the boats, kayaks and even fish from shore. Always a great Spring, come get them now!
Well, I’m glad to say the fish are back! Multiple big stripers off of the boats, as well as some from the beach. A fellow just brought in a 27 pounder to be weighed, and a few guys on a boat caught keepers from 17 to 23 pounds
