Fishing Report Week Ending 7/24/11

It was good fishing this week. Live bait was still plentiful and my one chunking trip this week worked out ok as well. Trips this week yielded 2 to 5 keepers. A 35 inch striper was our big fish for the week. Bluefish seemed to be making a bit of an appearance. We had a few cutoffs and did manage to land a nice 30+ inch bluefish in the river. We weren't targeting, bluefish just caught him while we were striper fishing. As a matter of fact, we caught a 32in striper and the bluefish within a minute of each other. Weather was certainly hot this week. Temps hit 100+ in Portsmouth this week, but with the breeze it really wasn't too bad out there, (until I got back to the dock to clean the boat and fish). I was a bit worried on the hottest day, as I was taking out an 89 year young guy and his son in law, and grandson. He did great fishing, hooking most of the fish for the day, and even though it was hot for me, he was in jeans and a sweatshirt the whole trip. Go figure.

Tight lines, Capt. Joel
