Bob's Bait Shack

May 22, 2017:
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.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack told me stripers and mackerel have arrived and the flounder fishing is improving every day. Most of the stripers are school-sized fish but there were more and more reports of keepers over the weekend. It feels like things are about ready to break wide open.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack reported the flounder fishing is really picking up no reports of limits but she was told they are catching. Kayakers are doing well in shallow water at Deer island flats. A couple of customers tried their luck around Constitution Beach and East Boston Yacht club area for flounder with some luck. 17-inch flounder were caught from the Pines River by Chris B. of Winthrop who is an up and coming fishing star.

    Darlene from Bob's Bait Shack reported limits on haddock at Stellwagen and Jeffrey's using clams. Customers told her of increasing number of flounder being caught all around Winthrop, Lynn and Nahant. The flounder fishing is getting better every day sand worms being the bait of choice. One seasoned veteran fisherman caught a schoolie while flounder fishing in Lynn. Darlene has noticed lots of bait fish around the docks in Winthrop.

    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.
