This past long weekend brought lots of wind and rain…and then some sun. It also brought big blues to Rick and his fishing buddy (pictured below) who were trolling out in front of Sandy Neck. They spotted a leatherback turtle, so keep your eyes peeled and do call Mass. Audubon if you come across a sea turtle.
In other saltwater news it has been reported that there are still lots of schoolies biting from the south side beaches and inside the harbors. A few keepers have also been landed on the south side. Bucktail jigs and soft plastics have both been working well.
The tautog reports have quieted from Colliers and Bishops but fishermen have had better luck for them in Buzzards Bay. Green crabs every time!
The freshwater bite has been very active. Sports Ports own, Shawn P., landed his personal best rainbow trout over the weekend. He was throwing kastmasters in Hamblins and managed to land a holdover.
Brandon was kind enough to send me a pic of this huge 6.44lb bass he landed on a jig.
Anytime you have a great fish picture please pass it on to us and we would love to include it in our fishing report.
