November 13, 2017:
Liz from Surfland B&T on Plum Island said it was winding down fast in local waters. They hadn't heard a surf report from the island since last week. There are some schoolies being caught on the freshwater side of the Amelia Earhart Dam. And one angler driving along the beaches in Revere reported seeing some birds working over breaking fish, but it was so cold Saturday morning that he couldn't last long enough to catch one.

    The story was unchanged at Surfland B&T on Plum Island this week. There are still big numbers of schoolie bass up there; the south end of the Island has been the most productive. The lion's share of the fish are in the 24 inches and under bracket but a few keepers up to about 15 pounds are still being caught. The shop will be transitioning to 'weekends only' for November and the shop will open at 8 a.m.

    Liz from Surfland B&T on Plum Island said there are still thousands of school bass up there. They are pretty much surrounding the island and running pretty far inside the Merrimack as well. These fish are mostly 20 inches and under with a few up to 26 inches mixed in. The night guys have still been finding a few 40-plus-inch fish on eels, but they are working hard for them. The north and south ends of the island have been the best spots for the bigger fish.

    Kay grabbed the horn at Surfland B&T on Plum Island and told me that the mouth of the Merrimack had been hot for small bass most mornings on the tail of the dropping tide and the first hour of the flood. The Wildlife Refuge has been productive as well with a mix of school bass and some over 20 pounds. Overall the south end of the island has had bigger fish. And there are still plenty of mackerel around.

    Surfland B&T on Plum Island said that boaters have been getting into some blues this week, the only beach report they had come from Parking Lot 3 where one customer nailed a 14-pounder with others one day last week. Striper catches are dominated by schoolies right now; the night crew is getting some better fish on eels, but they are working for them. The mouth of the Merrimack is producing schoolies and small keepers on paddletail shads and topwaters—fish the turns of the tide for best results.
