5/10 Buzzards Bay Report
Today I fished with Dana from work. I had been telling him about the fishing over the past few days and since he’s generally shore bound he was eager to fish from the boat. We launched out of Bourne at 0730 and headed out to Buzzards Bay. The water temps were great (upper 50’s) it was FAC and there was bait everywhere. Big and small bait you name it, it was there. All accept the fish. We circled Buzzards Bay 3 full times over the course of 6 hours. We found one small pod of skittish schoolies and managed to get a half dozen between us. Everything was perfect for the fish, but they were not around. The bait was going un-molested except for the birds trying to get them from above. The bay is ripe for an explosion of epic proportions when the next wave of fish moves in. With that much bait and water temps up to 59 degrees it shouldn’t be long. Final tally 6 fish up to 24” on rubber. Not banner day fishing, but the boat ran well. The poor fishing offered plenty of time to play with the new electronics.
