Reports

Any reports out there? The chatter has been pretty quiet. No need for specifics, just a nod as to whether the fish are moving.

I was in Maine last weekend and actually found areas to fish in the big surf but the water was filthy. Took a few good waves while clinging to the rocks.

Starting to get some chatter around Boston Harbor. Most guys are doing well at night on bigger fish and finding schoolies occassionally during the day. Snapper blues as well.

Got a report from Joe LeClair out in Buzzards Bay that he is starting to get in to some good schools of albies. Landed 10 with clients on Thursday. Here's his short but to the point report:

"They were eating well in the last couple days. I have seen enough to get psyched up to do it, and it takes a lot to get me psyched for albies."

Maine seems to be a bust so far. Jim Bernstein is reporting that he's just now starting to see some fish just slightly off shore. Says the shore fishing this year has been terrible. I tried to fish sothern Maine over the weekend and only caught a few big rollers in the face off the rocks at the Graveyard. Dangerous place to be in big surf so I called it quits after just a couple of hours.

Bayside...

last couple of days a creek emptying into Cape Cod Bay has been fishing fairly well, mainly on the outgoing tide at low light. Lots of sand eels and chunky silversides. nO SIGN OF THE PEANUTS.

RI is fishing very well and sounds like funny fish are heating up as well. Pays to be fishing in the big surf off rocks and getting soaked right now.

We have lots of mullet this year so the low numbers of peanuts have not been a big deal. Have had my best september with lots of keepers up to 20 pounds on the fly and some bigger on plugs a couple nights ago. Mullet eating stripers are a fly fishermans best friend.

Hard to be working,

Sean couldn't have said it any better. We've been very fortunate down this way. Hurricane Hannah put a short spin on things for the areas I fish but things have picked up and the Albies are becoming more prevalent. Like always, you have to put in the time and spending more time fishing at night can be fabulous.

Bayside at the Y had fish this morning at the bottom of the drop. Nothing big cauaght, 20 to 25", but fun nonetheless. Some bigger swirls seen. First tailers I've seen this year. Felt more like June than October.

Cranes Beach had all the bait ( i think small bunker) flopping on the surface you could ask for, but absolutely nothing bothering it last night.

North

What a strange year indeed. A buddy of mine from western NY spent a week in Maine and finally found some big fish in a well known rock fishing spot on his last day. Previous days on the York and Piscat from boat yielded only a few schoolies. Now the strange part.

Novia Scotia shops are reporting an unusual amount of schoolie striper action in numbers they have never seen before. This is as of last Tuesday. Could the fish have gone that far north? I know they get a run of big fish every year but according to the shops, they never get schoolies and never receive any fish in these kinds of numbers.

Some blitzes reported in Boston Harbor as well but on one day off the next. No consistency.

I'll be on the Cape next weekend with yak in tow searching for fish.

The biggest surprise for me this year is the lack of peanut bunker or should I say the current location of it. I saw a few pods of north bound peanuts maybe 3 weeks ago which was late compared to the last few years and in much fewer numbers. I also have yet to see any dropping out of the bays and rivers. The cove by my house in upper Narragansett bay is loaded with it but it hasn't even moved out of the cove. Past few years it was already making its way down the bay and getting marauded by bluefish by mid September.
