    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me all the buzz this week was the second reopening of the commercial bluefin tuna season and the bad weather predicted for Monday through Friday. Day 1 had great live bait action on the Southwest and the Northwest corners of Stellwagen Bank. The best catch of the day was from a close friend of the shop, and a life time member of the shop's tournament team, Rob from Plymouth on his boat Roblo tailing a 509-pound giant tuna, his best of the season. The bite remained consistent in both areas through Friday despite the horrible weather and sea conditions. There were rumors of two trolled fish of over 100 inches on Stony Ledge by the crew of Shadow Line. Captain Scott has all the details on that catch. Come on in any Thursday through Sunday for a peak at the official log of this season's incredible tuna fishing. Scott did manage get away from the store this week to fish for a few days of the hot action and did bag a few more bluefin tuna to finish off his season.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported the week was filled with rumors of a reopening of the commercial bluefin fishing season on November 12th. The fleet was preparing to for a 5-day season over the weekend. Mackerel fishing this week has been very good and the lobster fishing fleet also did well. These hard-working Americans help by keeping everyone informed on the location of bait and tuna. Local beach fisherman are still tangling with migrating bass and blackfish. The store has crab and the fresh mackerel in good supply and the information is always free. Scott is going back into the North Atlantic to try to land one more tuna, hoping for number 10 for the shop.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported this week was filled with frustration from the full-time commercial tuna fisherman as they received short notice for a 3-day reopening of commercial tuna fishing season. Many of the full-timers had already scheduled gear and vessel maintenance during the closure period so they and their crews would be ready to go on the December 1st scheduled reopening. Reports from commercial mackerel and lobster fishermen early last week saw record numbers of giant tuna landings as close as 4 miles off the beaches of Plymouth, Duxbury, Marshfield and Scituate. Many part-time tuna fishermen that had yet to land their first this season were rewarded on Wednesday with 80- to 100-inch bluefin before the first tide change. The end of the week was not as productive with the bad weather so not a lot of the allocated tonnage for October was caught, according to the fishery management officials. Scott and other experienced captains well-versed with this confused management strategy are closely monitoring the next opening. There are still some keeper striped bass being caught on mackerel, topwater plugs and Shimano Wax Wings. The best action has been from Hewitt's Cove south past the Green Harbor jetties. Scott tells his ambitious surf fisherman the last keeper normally comes on the full moon closest to game 7 of the World Series. That is not always true as a few have been caught from the bridge on Green Harbor River, Duxbury Beach and inside Green Harbor. The store will have fresh and frozen macs and all the best topwater plugs at great fall prices for a few more weeks.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported school bass action off the Green Harbor Jetty and beaches continues to be very strong. School tuna fishing is still good when the boats can get out.
