I paddled around Salem Willows last evening from 6 to 9. Nothing caught, but a beautiful night on the water. Saw two fairly large bass roll on some bait, but that was about it.

Question, O Solitary Seeker - Didst Thee bringeth piscatorial pursuit implements or just thine own punt?

I'd been getting out regularly in the Plymouth area and doing alright on schoolies and some blues. I went last night and got skunked, eel grass floating everywhere. The storm the other night kicked up the. Since I couldn't fish effectively I just paddled around in the rollers.

Wes and I ventured out in the wee hours and watched the sunrise over Long Island on the incoming tide. Jim had a good solid hook-up which then parted company. I managed to get some cursory interest but not much else. Only my second Yak / Night-time foray but as I said last time - it's a different world after dark. Once again, huge bow waves and boils accompanied us as our Kayaks sliced across the black mirror surface of each flat we crossed.

There are huge numbers of good sized bunker but no apparent interest from our striped friends as yet. There is also a preponderance of small one inch silver fry which are carpeting certain areas and occaisionally betray the presence of a large predator.

I am guessing these fish have taken up residence and gotten into a regular night-time feeding pattern. They evaporated once the sun came up.

So, there are numbers of good sized fish out there and a code to be cracked. Several more weeks of challenging opportunity await. :smokin:
