We have heard that there are some significant schools of fish (not sure what size) way to the east, out by Davis Swell and Sewell Ridge which is 100 NM east of Gloucester. Although these fish may be headed for Canada, with the abundance of bait and mackerel in the Gulf of Maine, that pattern might change. This may be too much wishful thinking, but this year’s conditions are clearly different from the last five and we are still really excited about what could happen later in the summer and this fall. The fish that are here may settle in soon and really start feeding. Meanwhile, the Striper fishing continues to be excellent closer to shore and we are enjoying a brief respite from the dogfish infestation!
We are bass fishing early this week then we are headed to Martha’s Vineyard for a charter for the Monster Shark Tournament. We will post a report when we are back in a week.
