Rumors of a Duxbury bite already?

I heard from the cable guy (he was hooking up my cable) that his friend at work has already caught some stripers in Duxbury. Any news out there? Would love to get the kayak wet this weekend.

Probably holdovers getting active. But I'll add to the rumor mill with bluefish and squid on the far south side.

South Side

My old friend and I ( and I mean Old ) took a ride to get the cob webs out and actually suited up and gave it a go for a couple hours,

Our intention was to fish and since we both had new rods we wanted to try out, we thought "what the hey".

When we arrived we did see a bunch of Birds up and working the way Birds do when on bait that is being pushed by fish. It lasted about fifteen minutes before they moved off and out of range.

Well, long story short, no fish but it did feel good to get out.

The fact that we did see the Birds working may just give a the rumor of Squid and Blues being around a little validity.

Been riding on the beach road down to Gurnet each morning this week, haven't seen any signs of life yet, at least on that side of the bay.

Hoping for another week or two... the boat's not ready yet.

Baymen did post this last week though, it might be what your guy was referring to: http://www.baymencharters.com/first-...of-the-season/

with the warmer water and bigger baits around, the fish are definitely more active and on the move.

herring are around early and big plastics are getting some love.

a decent fish from last week...

No bite in DUX yet. Yes, you might get lucky and hook into a small schoolie, but that rule could be applied to any place around. A few more weeks, and the first sizable schools and fish should show. I'm hoping the macs are already off the Gurnet too. Boat goes in 4/28...
