Fishing Report

May 14th, 2019

sea surface temp is 50 degrees

Spring is evasive, just when you think it is finally here, you get a cold wet rain that lasts for a couple of days and it feels ike March again...I do have some promising news though!

The water temp is hovering at 50 degrees and just like clockwork, the Stripers have arrived!  I have seen a pic of a nice slot sized striper caught in Scarborough over the weekend.  I have also heard of a couple caught in the Mousam in the last week as well.  So it begins!

Last week I heard rumor of Mackerel caught by a lobsterman offshore.  The Haddock fishing has been solid, if you can brave the cold and make a run to Jeffreys.  Some caught with clam bait, some on jigs with fly teasers.  Keep in mind that the groundfishing regulations for 2019 have not been updated yet, for now use 2018 regulations.

Keep the faith, it will get warmer and the fishing will improve!
