View Full Version : 9/11 Ipswich Bay Blues

09-11-2000, 01:02 PM
We were on our way to Halibut Point and the Salvages this morning but never made it. We spotted birds and blues working about 3 miles from Halibut and 3 miles off the Refuge. They were all over the area and kept surfacing on and off until 9:30 when the fog thickened. The surface was glassy and it was easy to spot the fish, even with the hazy conditions. We ended up with 8 slammers between the two of us and most were taken on surface bluefish plugs.

There were no other boats out and it was eerily quiet. An added bonus was a humback whale passing about 100 yards in front of us.
