Portsmouth - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing Report Week Ending 7/10/11
This weeks report is similar to last weeks, we had some great days and some ok
days. The bookends of the week were the best. On monday, I did a 4 hour
trip using dead bait and chunks, we were rewarded with 8 keeper size stripers
(keeping 2)and a bunch of others. The rest of the week was spent on 6 hour trips using live
bait. On some days the baits were easy to catch and on others it was real tough.
On every trip we caught at least one keeper, with 3 or 4 the norm. On Saturday,
live baits were easy to get and we filled the live well with little mackerel (or
striper snickers bars as I like to call them), in less than and hour, leaving plenty of
time to fish for stripers. By the end of the day, we had a count of 8 over the size limit
(only keeping 3 for the dinner table).
Hopefully the baits will be plentiful for many more trips.
I currently have open dates on Tuesday and Thursday of this week so there are still
open midweek dates available to get in on some good striped bass fishing.
tight lines, Capt. Joel
