Boston Harbor reports

Wayne Frieden (captwayne) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: May 13, 2009: I had the pleasure of taking Roland Perkins and his son Michael out for an afternoon of fly and light tackle fishing. Well, the weatherman had predicted 10-15 knot winds but the reality was at least 20 sustained throught the entire trip. We fished the outgoing tide and did not see any bird activity nor did we mark any fish in the harbor. I decided to run outside and try to find a lee where there might be some bass and birds working over bait. Although we travelled far and wide, we did find some fish to make the day and prevent a skunk on the boat. Damn wind...

May 9, 2009: The wind was light and the weather was typical New England ~ ever changing. However, the fishing was just awesome! Took my friend Bob out for early season striper fishing and found a rather large school of bass @ 2 hours into the coming tide. We stayed with these fish for a couple of hours, until the water flooded in and the fish scattered. Ran outside to a favorite flat and fished the grass beds to catch a handful more, including a nice 30 incher. Back into the bay after the tide started moving and found loads of voracious bass on the outgoing stage of the tide. With a full moon tide, it appeared that the fish were feeding on worms as well as herring. The majority were feisty 26" schoolies with a few small keepers in the mix. I actually missed one fish that appeared to be 30+ inches, but it's always the big one that gets away ;-).

Yours truly...this one took a deceiver pattern First fish of the 2009 season. Deceiver, 8wt, Depth Charge Line

May 2, 2009: Still working on getting all my gear down to the marina but it won't be long before we start seeing the first schools of striped bass chasing herring into the bays and estuaries along the harbor. Lots of good dates available for spring striper fishing so now's the time to book your next trip! BTW, the Tall Ships will be coming to Boston July 8 so that will be a very exciting time to be on the water.
