Striped Bass fishing should start any day

Once the rain and wind settles down mid week, I am expecting the mackerel and herring to be around Gurnet Point. We went out on Friday to see what was out there in the way of bait and we came up empty after about an hour of jigging. Some Striped Bass have been down towards the canal for some time now, so I am expecting them in Duxbury Bay any day now. Some early season Striped Bass fishing with live mackerel on light gear is always fun for everyone. If you haven’t booked a trip for May, do so before we fill up.

Seeing all the sand eels, mackerel, herring, whales, and hundreds or dolphins out at Stellwagen the other day got my hopes up that it will be an early start for Tuna fishing. Get ready, they will be here in no time..
