So fishing the Merrimack River has been stellar since the last report! Thank you to everyone who has come out thus far and have future trips booked! Since the last report, we had some great schoolie striper action and the keeper bass have moved in! It's been as good as an early June as I can remember the past 4 years. Mackerel have been in thick when you can find them, it has been a little challenging at times, but they are quickly turning into stripers. Some times you have to be a little patient and wait for the tide to do its thing, but when it has turned on it has been world class fishing.
The 2011 year class is continuing to make a strong appearance. Most all the fish are between 27.5" and 32" so plenty of keepers around for early June! Action has been great throughout the trips, but when it turns on, it has been epic. We had lots of keepers the past two weeks and with the June moon up this Friday, the really big 35+" fish will be more abundant!
Check out my Facebook page (Click HERE) for some opening for shared group charters. I'll post openings for the weekahead and just let me know if you are interested. It will be $110 per head and we need at least 3 to go! We have done a couple already and people have made some great friends and new fishing buddies!
I still have some weekday afternoon charters available the next few weeks. This is my favorite trip in June!!! It can be great, great striped bass fishing charter. Call to make a reservation now!
Ok...Here are some of the pics!
