Striped Bass NH 7/17/11

Captain Joel - 07/16/2011

Fishing report week ending 7/17/2011

Middle of the week was best this week.  Took long time customers Dave and Bruce out for a 6 hour trip on Thursday.  Macs were easy to get and we were rewarded with 9 keepers, only keeping our limit.   The amazing thing about this trip was Bruce out fished Dave.   This was certainly a first as Dave can catch fish before most have even gotten a line in the water.  That is how it goes sometimes. 

Big fish of the week was on Wed. when  13yr old Andrew got a 35” on cut bait that we released for another day.  His brother Mark 14 yrs old hooked a 31”within a minute of us landing Andrew’s fish.  Nice job guys.

Most other days of the week went well although Saturday’s 4 hour trip with some very young fisherman went a lot slowerthen I wanted.  We only got 4 fish in 4 hours and none big enough for dinner that night.    At least we got a few and the older brotherRo who was 7 had a good time.

Oh well I really tried. 

Tight lines,

Capt. Joel
