Re: Fishing

Blues barbecue fairly well wrapped tight in tin foil with mayo and onions.. Still try to get below them for strippers. Never had any kind of luck catching strippers from a sailboat under way. Think they are lazy and don't like to swim as fast as blues nor chase bait/ lures like blues. Think they're more like me. Just hang out and see what comes by. Last year was weird for me with best fishing around here in late fall. Never caught any pelagic fish from a sailboat. That must be a hoot. Can't wait to try it.

Re: Fishing

One of my tools in the arsenal is a 14 ft cast net. It puts the right bait on the hook most days and sometimes I get lucky and get something for the pot casting the net for bait fish.
When not in use, it lives in an empty cat litter bucket. Mind you, it does take a bit of practice to throw a net that size from a sail boat and get it to open up nice and round. But you can start off using a smaller one and work your way up.

If you want to consistently catch fish, even under the worst conditions, you need a rod and reel. This alone, however, will not put fish in the cooler chest. You need to learn about fishing various forms of structure, how to read the water, how to locate the structure on your charts, correct bait presentation, types of bait for specific species, feeding habits of the species, temperature comfort zones for each species, and more. Fishing isn't just a matter of tossing a bait or lure overboard and a fish jumps on your offering and commits suicide - it's an skill that requires a fair degree of study to be successful. More so than sailing. It's far more complex than most people realize. Granted, there are times when the fish seem to be jumping in the boat, but those situations are indeed rare. The best advice I would have for someone just starting out would be for them to go fishing with a licensed charter fishing captain and learn as much from that trip as you can. Ask questions, take notes, and learn why and how this individual is successful. It can be well worth the time and effort, and you should have a lot of fun in the process.

Or just take/hire me, give me the rod and I say here fishy fishy! Whala I catch a fish. Just ask Gary how effective this works!!!

Re: Fishing

It works - Melissa nailed a false albacore doing just that. She's an amazing woman to say the least. I'm hoping to sail with her again in the very near future.

Re: Fishing

I can only echo what Michael said about the cast net. It's fairly easy to use once you get into the rhythm of using it, and I use an 8-footer, which produced several shrimp dinners for me. Just shine a flashlight into the water near the boat and when you see a bunch of pink eyes looking back, toss the net over them - instant shrimp dinner, or lots of bait at the very least. And, there's usually some tasty fish lurking just beneath the shrimp looking for an easy meal.

Also, I hooked two 30plus inch stripers off the coast of Plymouth, MA. one day. I was trolling a spoon about 200ft behind the boat both times. When I hooked the first one, I thought that I had hooked a lobster pot, and was upset because I was going to loose the lure. After reeling in about 100 ft the fish began to fight.

Unfortunately, we had neither gaff, nor net in the boat, and they both spit the hook as I brought them along side the boat.

Re: Fishing

Fish Plymouth a lot through the years. Channel runs along Browns Bank. Have usually hooked up there running the channel using any sand eel imitation dragged behind the boat on any rig you choose but need to go slow and be as close as possible to the bank.Really hot spot. Also two rock ( north up by duxbury) and Marianne rocks ( down by toward the canal) are always hot. For conventional fly fishing throw cloisters through the rip near Bug light on the tide. Good spot for strippers. Blues hang out by power plant exhaust. Get as close as the security cops let you.
