Last Sunday (6-13) was a very exciting trip. Off the tip of P Town we started out using bunker spoons - First 2 passes we had 1/2 dz Bass to 40". Spotting some working birds we pulled the wire and went casting (to what we thought were Blues). Using Al Gagg's "Whip-it Eels" we landed a estimated 60 Bass from 34-42". Monday we were off to search for some Black Sea Bass in Buzzards Bay. That day and the following we had our limit of fish (60) on hand tied jigs, from the Bad Fish Outfitters. Wednesday, we were back to P Town to do some more casting. Same results, 80 to 100 Stripers to the mid 30# range on the "Whip it eels" and some of my pencil poppers. By 8 am, we bent all the barbs over so we could release fish much easier. Thruought all of this action we had only caught a a dz Blues ! Hope this action continues for a while !!

Sorry for the delay ! Saturday May 22 Richard and his son Rich joined us for a mixed bag of Cod, Pollock and Mackerel. At first light we caught around 80 Mackerel to liveline for Stripers, with no avail. Out to Stellwagon we headed in 130' of water to catch many shorts and a few keepers to hit the deck. Sunday Todd and the concrete boys joined us to target Stripers. After 30 Mackerel we headed east to the #1 Can at the southern edge of Billingsgate to search. Within minutes we had our first keeper, and finished up with one short of the crew's limit. The fish were in the 32-38' range and were very hard to hook on the live bait. Actually, we had to make a trip back to the Canal to reload the livewell to catch our last few. Since the Salt trips I had fished Lake Ontario and the ALC Club. Between the Adarondaic League and Lake O we hit em pretty hard, 74 Trout 4 Salmon and 1 Laker. Back out this week for Stripers and Sea Bass. See U soon !
