Green Harbor Bait & Tackle

September 17, 2018:
Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported he pulled an all-nighter at the shop Saturday night. There are good numbers of stripers from 27 to 41 inches off High Pines Ledge to Beetles Rock after the north wind earlier in the week. Scott fished in the wind and rains with one his buddies on Monday night and they crushed the fish. There are some schools of bluefish milling and feeding between Duxbury to Green Harbor, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. With the abundance of both peanut bunker and mackerel in the area, the fishing should remain solid unless there is a sudden change in the weather pattern.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me the water has been abnormally warm. Mahi-mahi were actually landed from the deck of FV Rock on the Southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank this week, and a lot of bonito or baby wahoo (there has been argument among fishermen as to which species they are catching) outside Green Harbor to High Pines. Bluefish and bass have been mixed and blitzing from North River to the Plymouth power plant. Keeper bass are being caught off Race Point on Bill Hurley's Canal Killers and Taddy metals.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me the big news this week was the arrival of bluefish after the full moon. They invaded the waters Race Point to the Green Harbor jetties. They were a welcomed and long-awaited addition to the list of inshore species local anglers and fish for. Bass fishing has been good from Warrens Cove to High Pines. The pogies have moved north to Scituate. Mackerel still plentiful all the way out to Farnham Rock.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me the local Green Harbor beaches slowed to just average August fishing this past week. The early north wind made the surf water dirty and weedy. Hard core fisherman did very well focusing on inside Duxbury Bay, Green Harbor River, and North River inlets during the north wind. Bass up to 39 inches were landed on tube and worms, popper, and Bill Hurley's magic soft baits (that's what Scott call them, Bill has another label). Later in the week as the wind shifted and the water cleaned up the bait mostly bunker and mackerel showed up for the weekend. Young anglers were snagging bunker and live lining them off the Green Harbor jetties to land 20 plus pound bass. The entire east edge of Stellwagen Bank, north to Tillies has some troll-able bluefin in the area. Several giants were landed as well this week.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me mackerel have shown up in greater numbers and there are still tons of pogies around for bait. Overall the shore fishing from the beaches has slowed during the day, however some keeper and larger 40-inch fish have been caught. The larger fish have been caught from boats with live bait or fresh caught chunks. The rivers continue to have abundant school-sized stripers where tube and worm rigs sweetened with a sea worm have worked best. If you are fishing from the jetties, clams, mackerel or live eels at night are still yielding nice fish. Offshore fishing for haddock remains excellent on Jeffrey's Ledge.
