With the questionable weather for this weekend and the spotty reports, I have decided not to rush things in the yard and launch on Monday or Tuesday. I have been getting a few calls about striped bass fishing. As with other types of fishing, it comes down to the luck of the draw, there are no sure things. Weather, tides and other factors effect the bite and you just have to be there when it happens. Things are looking good on the fluke also and the season should open soon. Some have been caught already and I can't wait for a fresh fluke dinner.

We just returned from our spring fishing trip aboard the "Lady Tracy Ann" out of Eastman's dock in NH. It was a great trip with perfect weather and lots of fun with old friends. Fishing was fair with the morning bite being slow and some good drops in the afternoon. A nice mix of cod, haddock, pollock,wolf fish,cusk and red fish. Fresh baked haddock is one of the best things on earth. Now its back to the boatyard and I will report later on the progress and make a determination for Sundays trip later. It looks like the storms out west will bring us rain Friday and Saturday. Stay tuned.

I am making progress getting things ready for the season. Spring weather is always tricky, but as long as there are a few nice days you can get things done. The best striped bass fishing of the season occurs during May, so now is the time to start planning.
