View Full Version : Essex River - 7/25

The mouth of the Essex fished well this AM. At first light, even though it was high tide, there were birds working the mouth and behind Crane Beach.

Saw a shore fisherman beach a nice-sized keeper (which he kept) right at the tip of Crane.

Although the action was a little slower than previous mornings, the fish were nice sized - 22 - 26" - with nothing smaller mixed in. By 8 AM, it was pretty much over.

Other boats seemed to be doing well from what I could observe.

One Bluefish in front of Cranes with the NE Breeze honking
1 small schoolie up by Castleneck
Saw one other guy on a fish...looked like a bluefish that eventually broke him off and heard a shore guy landed a nice fish with meat.....you telling me everyone was hooking up today...what did you sprinkle on those cherios?
