Fishing the lights

Today I had the pleasure of taking out Steve and Cheryl, what a nice couple. We had a slow start as the launch was delayed because of the fireworks being loaded to the barge outside the Pamet. Once we got rolling things were fine despite the foggy conditions. I checked out a couple of spots that had fished pretty well days prior but the fish were being uncooperative, so we moved to find some stuff that would eat. The fish were on the deep edges suspended, but were happy to take anything you threw at them. They are still packed with squid and sandeels and any other baitfish that might be paddling around the bay. All in all had a real nice half day trip with great light tackle results. Looking forward to doing it again.



Guides' day off

Today it was guides' day off so Jeff and I geared up the Osprey and figured we would try something different. Launched out of Chatham and ran east, loads of mackerel all over the place with nothing in chase. It will be something to see when the tuna find this bait. Ran a little more northeast to find lots of dirty water, a few whales and not much bait. A friend was in the area and he had some activity on the troll, so we pushed out to where he was to find the mother lode of shearwaters and bait. Started the vertical jigging. On the second move we got bit and managed to get out of the bird melee; the fish ran a couple of hundred yards of line off the reel. I quickly got some line back and put the screws to this fish -- got it to the boat in 10 minutes, pretty impressive the drag pressure you can get out of the right spinning reel and rod combo. The setup was a Stella 18 and a Van Stahl jigging stick, both very well matched. The fish was 64 inches. By this time the south wind kicked up and we had a good run back to the inlet. Great day on the water.


Swing and miss

Today I had some great kids on board, Jason and Michael, and Jason's father Dan. Started off with some topwater fishing that netted some keepers, then went to vertical jigging. We caught plenty of keeper bass and packs of large bluefish on light tackle. Dan suggested that we might go looking for tuna so off we went, found plenty of life with fish free-jumping around the boat but did not get bit; we watched whales for a little while then decided to make a move. Ran into the bay and found fish pushing, got set up and fired the baits right into the mix. I think both Dan and myself had fish boil on the bait but no luck. We did get to see the fish up close as one almost bounced off the side of the boat. All in all a great day on the water - I look forward to seeing them again next summer.

Foggy days

Today I had Mike and his family out for a day of bass,blues and tuna. The bass fishing was great, though we did not spend that much time at it as we were in search of charlie. Ran into the fog big time; we did find some life but not quite what we wanted. Ended the day back on the bass grounds with lots of bass and blues. Had a great day with the guys -- hopefully they will be back to do it again and next time I will get some pics as I was busy releasing all the topwater fish we could handle.

Thanks guys, I will see you soon.
