Bob's Bait Shack

April 24, 2017:
Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me that it seems the flounder fishing is starting to pick up. Three young kayakers reported they got into a bunch of flounder off Yirrel Beach in Winthrop with some more reports of flounder being caught on the flats. They also had a report of a couple of nice flounder caught near the Dory Club in Nahant. Mackerel can be found around the harbor islands trolling over structure with a Sabiki and 6-ounce jig.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me a few early flounder have been caught around Deer Island Flats but only a few reports of legal-sized fish. It is still a little early but fishing should start getting good in a few more weeks. There are also hold-over stripers being caught in the Charles and Saugus Rivers. Hours of operation for April are as follows: Monday 9-6, Tuesday closed, Wednesday and Thursday 9 to 6, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 8 to 6.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me that the store is open for the season. They received their first batch of sand worms and they are beautiful. Darlene had a report of a 2-pound flounder caught off the shore at Deer Island which is very encouraging news of what should be a very productive spring. Shake the cobwebs off your gear with some flounder fishing until the stripers make their appearance. Trout are also being caught at Sluice Pond in Lynn .Hours of operation for April are as follows: Monday 9-6, Tuesday closed, Wednesday and Thursday 9 to 6, Friday, Saturday and Sunday 8 to 6.
