Cool Boston Harbor

Saturday, May 25, 2002: Canceled the trip today due to post cold front conditions and strong NW winds. Boy, am I glad did! From what I heard, the guys
using live herring did very well while those fly and light tackle enthusiasts were getting the stuffing knocked out of them.

Sunday, May 26, 2002: Speaking of herring, Kevin Cheevers ( a live herring aficionado) brought along a bunch of live herring for yours truly to try on
Sunday's charter. Kevin preferred to use the long wand. We found the fish at first light in the main Harbor channel and Kevin took a number of nice
schoolies before we lost the tide. Throw a live bait out with bass in the area and you were hooked up within minutes. However, both Kevin and I agreed that there is nothing like catching a fiesty striper on the fly. Medium to large herring pattern deceivers or half & half's were the ticket. Although there was some activity on the coming tide in the Fore River, it didn't amount to much. At the top of the tide, the fish came up chasing the blue backs in the anchorage.

Memorial Day, May 27, 2002: Today was a perfect day on the water...With warmer temperatures, no wind, and lots of willing linesiders, you just couldn't
go wrong. Again, the fish were up BIG TIME off the Castle from first light into the coming tide. My charter, Enuch Huang, wife Grace, brother Chris and
Chris' wife Stephanie enjoyed catching schoolies on light tackle all morning long. The smaller pearl bass assassin's, white shad bodies, and white sparkle saltwater tubes (gitzits) worked especially well later in the morning when the fish were on silversides and somewhat finicky. Although the early morning fish were on the small side, we did get into some nicer bass later on in Quincy Bay. The fish came up again in the anchorage an hour or two before high tide. However, the school was not particularly large and the bass were doing their yo yo thing chasing the herring to the surface.

Until next week, we'll see you out there...
