BOSTON HARBOR & SOUTH SHORE- Stripers 7/3/2007

Postby bfast » Wed Jul 04, 2007 9:58 am


Big Bass moved into the inner-harbor this past week producing our largest bass of the season caught on surface presentations. Saturday morning’s charter started in at first-light in Quincy bay. Dana Wilson of Landmark Impressions of Woburn, MA made a big “impression” by hooking our season’s best fish to date; a 39”, 22# striper on a surface-rigged soft-plastic. After a brief Kodak moment, the keeper was revived employing the Boga grip and released. A mix of small blues and school bass from the upper-reaches of the inner harbor added to the day’s catch. Winslow’s afternoon delight in white and chartreuse Gartside’s gurglers also fished well on the long rod using floating Wonderline.
One the way back to Cohasset harbor, the anglers fished the pocket-water on the rocky ledges and promontories of Minot’s, and hooked and release numbers of school bass to 24”.

On the Eve of the Fourth, Chris Straub and his good friend and colleague, Tim Roland, of Ultimate Valet Service in Boston, also fished the upper-reaches of the inner-harbor bays in the afternoon. The bass are still feeding on silversides, and although there was no surface activity evident, once again appropriate presentations fished on structure produced great results. With the wind a steady 20 knots, fly fishing was difficult. While the fishing was slow to start producing only a few small schoolies on light-tackle, by the middle of the ebb that surface action picked up. Chris struck pay-dirt first announcing he was “On” from the front casting platform. With the wind pushing the boat in one direction and the bass moving the other, we decided to give chase. The fish pulled the Boga to 18# and measured 34 inches. Not to be out-done, after a relocating over structure, Tim teased his keeper to the surface from the 9 ft. depths. After a brief chase, we netted a fat, 33”, 18# twin, completing a double!

This charter was a gift to Chris from his new wife, Tatum; she is a “keeper” in my book, and I, for one, will be stopping by and seeing her at “Mistrals” on Columbus Avenue real soon.
