Belsan Bait & Tackle

May 22, 2017:
Conner from Belsan's Bait and Tackle told me fishing is very good. There are tons of mackerel and blue back herring outside the river and around the harbor. Flounder fishing is improving every day as is striper fishing. The North River is loaded with bass from 12 to 26 inches with a few jumbos mixed-in.

    Sal from Belsan's Bait and Tackle told me the rivers are full of small 16- to 26-inch stripers feeding on herring. There are a few bigger, keeper-size stripers in the mix, but they are far and few between. Flounder fishing remains slow but improving weekly as the water temperatures rise.

As the water warms up fishing continues to get better every day. The ground fishing for haddock and throw back cod on Stellwagen has been fantastic.

    Pete from Belsan's Bait and Tackle reported the early-season trout fishing for both rainbow and browns has been great. It won't be long before the first flounder of the year is landed and the saltwater fishing season gets into high gear. Pete told me that May 1st is usually the start of steady flounder activity. The store is open seven days a week and is fully stocked for the spring fishing season.
