GET READY!

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
 I don’t have a best bet this week as, really, there is nothing in the reports that points towards a single spot as being your best shot at scoring in the surf this week. But, with that said, the usual late-April to early-May spots all started to wake up in ...

Location: New England
Despite Mother Nature’s attempt at extending her grip on winter in the form of yet another nor’easter last week, there are signs of spring all around us. Trout stocking trucks have been rolling for the better part of three weeks now, and in places where the season is open (all ...

Location: New England

TOUGH WEEK o’ FISHIN’

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
Aside from a few standouts including improved holdover striped bass action and a little isolated cod success, fishing was tough this past week. The cod, for the most part, turned off the feed with far more slow trips than hot ones. One boat did manage an excellent trip over the ...

RIDE THAT ROLLERCOASTER

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
