Bob's Bait Shack

June 19, 2017:
Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me she had a lot of customers planning to fish during the tall ship parade but the special event put a damper on the fishing. There were reports of haddock by the B buoy and great luck with mackerel behind Graves Light. Flounder fishing is still doing well at Deer Island and the Pines River. More keeper stripers were caught this week and there are a lot of schoolies in the harbor. Clams have been very effective as bait plus there was a report of black sea bass at Deer Island Flats.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me anglers had a good week of fishing in Winthrop. Stripers are being caught throughout the harbor on a variety of baits including mackerel, clams and sea worms. Many schoolies are being caught but fish in the 30- to 40-inch range are in the mix. Deer Island has been a hot spot lately with stripers hitting small herring on the surface, close to shore; and many flounder being caught on the flats. Mackerel are being caught by Graves light and the B buoy.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me schoolies are all over Winthrop including the Belle Isle Bridge. They are feasting on fresh mackerel chunks, sea worms and clams with some nice 30- to 40-inch keepers mixed-in. Nighttime striper fishermen working Deer Island are catching big bass. Dan from the store caught a 35-inch striper off Jeffries Point in East Boston. Flounder fishing remains very strong and Winthrop Flats is producing good numbers. Mackerel are around and anglers are having good luck at the B buoy. There are lots of haddock at Stellwagen.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me striper and mackerel have arrived and the flounder fishing improving every day. Most of the stripers are school-sized fish, but there were more and more reports of keepers over the weekend. Fishing is on the verge of breaking wide open.
