Last 2 weeks in August.

Portsmouth - Saltwater Fishing Report

Last 2 weeks of August Report.
Fishing was just ok these last two weeks. I did not do any live bait trips as baits have been spotty at best. All of the trips I ran the last two weeks were with cut bait. On almost every trip we caught Stripers and usually got at least 1 to 3 keepers. Some trips we decided to go for a cruise mid trip and spend time viewing the sites and sounds of the Piscataqua River. These are neat trips as there is so much history along the river, we have forts, lighthouses, the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (with at least 1 nuclear sub visible), and old military prison etc.
Over the weekend Hurricane Irene came for a visit. Ok it was only a tropical storm when it came through the Portsmouth area, but it sure did dump a lot of rainwater and stirred up the bottom. Thankfully, I had no problems with the boat, however the water is very murky and weedy in the river right now. Hopefully this wont affect the fishing for the rest of the season.
Tight lines.
Capt. Joel.
