Talking North Shore Blues

DUMPED IN YESTERDAY IN THE IPSWICH RIVER AT 10:30 A.M. AND RAN INTO BREAKING BLUES IMMEDIATELY. FOUND THEM TO BE VERY SPOOKY SO RAN OUT TO THATCHERS AND FOUND A MIND BOGGLING SCENE. ACRES OF CRASHING BLUES, SPRAYING BAIT, AND SWARMS OF BIRDS. WE PROCEEDED TO LAND THE LARGEST BLUES(13-15 LBS.) I'VE SEEN IN YEARS ON EVERY CAST FOR THREE HOURS. THEN IT WAS BACK TO WORK. GET OUT THERE, WE WERE THE ONLY BOAT THERE. ONE TO TWO FOOT CHOP, SUNNY AND CLEAR. WHAT A SITE!

Bimini: Same scene today, with bluefish spread over a wide area from Loblolly to Thacher. Epic fishing.

NOW THE BIG DECISION. FISH UP HERE AGAIN THIS WEEKEND OR CHASE ALBIES ON THE CAPE OR DOWN AT PT.JUDITH? CAN ANYONE GIVE ME ANY INSIGHT INTO WHAT'S HAPPENING AT EITHER PLACE?

"Never leave fish to find fish!"

My 2 cents.

I was out of town last weekend. I was into the blues two weeks ago but the heavy action was between 8am-2 pm and it would shut down in the later afternoon.

I am drooling at my desk with all of these reports and am planning on leaving work at noon Friday. Has there been an afternoon bite in the Essex?

North Shore

Could not resist a return to Thacher Island area this morning and was not disappointed, though the bluefish were not as concentrated as they were yesterday. Still, plenty of big fish for all and tons of bait. There were also lots of keeper stripers on the rocks, though another fly fisherman said they had turned off about 15 minutes before we drifted onto the scene. It was a veritable striper aquarium, with lunker bass swimming lazily amid the baitfish, from time to time suddenly turning on briefly then as quickly off. The blues that were mixed in would hit anything, but it was not until my buddy and I went to black flies that we started catching bass, and only without shock leaders. We hooked only one keeper but had fairly steady action on some stout 22-inchers. Have not fished the Essex but gave Coffin Beach a good look both yesterday and today and saw nothing. There were tons of small stripers feeding in the Annisquam River yesterday morning and afternoon but none at all today.
