I'll be up visiting my folks in Georgetown (south of Newburyport) next weekend (Dad's day), and was wondering if anyone has been fishing the Joppa flats or Plum Island (ocean and/or sound sides) recently that can give me a heads up on conditions up thataway.

Have not been there myself, But my friends have been over several times in the last week & report that the fishing was good. My chiropractor landed two nice ones Thursday on 30 & one 32" I think he said. Others report that fishing is good inside & out.
I am scheduled to go this Thursday

Warren- Thanks for the heads up. Good luck next week- hopefully your chiro left us both a few keepers!

I have been to the area three times this year, including an early pre-work trip on Thursday.
I have caught plenty of schoolies so far, but no large fish. Nonetheless, you know that the large fish are there. I saw some large fish jumping around during a kayak trip on Joppa last week. But alas no hook-ups.

Thanks, Mike- maybe I can entice some of the big girls with one of my creations, or my best approximation of one of Juro's "Deep Eels".

Dr. D the back cracker almost always returns the fishies to the water:D I'll send (PM) you a report Thursday night of what I find. Am I assume you will be shore bound?

We went out today in the Merrimack & caught some fish today. I wouldn't say it was on fire, maybe good. Nevertheless my partner landed & released two 32 inch class fish. I hovered around keeper class all day. Plenty of schoolies to keep me interested & did a long line release on a Big one:(
