First report of keeper bass received!

[April 9, 2000]

Just received a *VERY* good report from Don Baker (Sesuit Creek Outfitters 508.385.1912) that keeper bass were caught livelining herring on the Nantucket Sound side of the cape. From my experiences, that would put big fish at the mouth of Herring runs throughout the area although the numbers would increase over the next few weeks, then the early blues arrive at these same locations.

A good bet would be to fish large herring imitations on the ebb tide at the mouth of the Herring River -or- at the Parkers River mouth on Seagull beach. Never rule out the river itself, very big bass will chase the herring up into the estuaries and even up into the sweet water this time of year. For Seagull, the channel runs parallel to shore and is closest to the beach at the first jetty looking west. It's always worth stopping at the first access along the beach and fishing at the rocks at first light because the channel is right in front of you. As the tide recedes, there is plenty of wading space off the end of the main jetty at the mouth of Parkers, allowing one to wade out into the bar and swing a fly into the outgoing current.

Let me know if this advice pans out for you! (I'm stuck with this web site update or else I'd be there NOW)
