TODAY: 45 Bass, 1 Blue, 3 Keepers
As predicted, the fall fish are on the move today and they are scattered throughout our bay. They are not stacked up by any means, but all the spots we fished today from Plymouth to Duxbury to Kingston had fish in them. Some of the fish were decent size three-footers. On board today, I had repeat clients Gary Condon & Ray of Affordable Closets, their friend Kevin Erickson. At first light on the dropping tide, we found fish working top-water, with birds overhead. The fun part was some of these fish were in 2-4 feet of water and at one point, they had the bait pushed right up along shore! That’s light tackle fishing at its finest. Everybody was hooking up and then Kevin gets a reel screamer. When I looked up, the fish had already taken out one-hundred yards of line. I thought we may have to start the boat to give chase, but the fish stopped and about ten minutes later, Kevin puts a fat three-footer into the boat!
Later in the morning, down Plymouth, we found a ton of fish up on the flats in a foot or two of water. We could see maybe twenty fish at a time zipping around in search of bait. We caught some of them up on the flats and then along the deep channel drop-offs. We also fished structure for a while and caught more fish, including two more keepers. We also have another three-footer on but lost it when the line snapped and the fish then threw the hook beside the boat as we watched helplessly! Some small blues are mixed in with the bass, mostly in the Duxbury waters. We found solid bass down in Plymouth waters. Total catch for the morning was 45 striped bass and 1 blue. All fish were boated on light tackle rubber crank baits in waters ranging from one foot to more than twenty feet.
Baymen has a few weekdays available for morning trips if you want to fish with us. Trips for 1-3 anglers are available for light tackle or fly fishing. We will also fish bait – live or chunk. Call for rates and availability (781) 934-2838. We have about three weeks left and then the fishing season in our bay is over for this year. We then start the fall hunting seasons and start our guide services for sea ducks, puddle ducks, rabbit hunts, and deer.
Tight Lines and good luck if you are heading out!
