Irene's murky water is still coming down the Merrimack, not quite as bad, but still brownish. Katia's big swells have dissipated too and I got out today! The bluefish are back and hungry! I was pulling plugs and had a couple of doubles. Always fun when fishing alone. Just to add a degree of difficulty I had to wrestle one back from a good sized seal! The fish he wanted was still attached to my plug, one that was working real well, and I wanted it back! I tried to get a photo of the culprit but he took off before I could reel in & focus the camera.
I also had 2 first hand reports of tuna chasing mackerel or bluefish just off the beach! Getting spooled by a tuna in 50' of water would definitely get you heart rate up!!
So it is looking like we are back in business for a few more weeks! Come on down, the water is fine, and so is the fishing.
