Belsan Bait & Tackle

June 18, 2018:
Jake from Belsan's Bait and Tackle told me that mackerel fishing has slowed up a little, but you will have the best success if you go very early. Striped bass are being caught in the North River and along the shoreline in the boulders and offshore ledges like Minot and under schools of mackerel. Flounder fishing remains decent in the harbor along the mooring field. Haddock fishing is still very good with the biomass moving more to the east.

    Mason from Belsan's Bait and Tackle told me fishing has been excellent. Fishermen are having great success catching bass between 26 and 32 inches both in and around the mouth of the North River. Stripers can also be found on many of the outside ledges, but the North River has been very hot. Mackerel are everywhere with fishermen having no trouble jigging up plenty of live bait during low light conditions. When the sun gets up in the sky they become far less cooperative. Flounder, on the other hand, have been biting the best during bright sunny days. Scituate Harbor and Little Cohasset Harbor has been great and a nice option.

    Jake from Belsan's Bait and Tackle told me the striper fishing in the North and South Rivers was very good again this this week with larger fish in the mix. There have also been some bigger stripers caught on some deeper water ledges around big schools of mackerel. The flounder fishing inside the harbor is excellent, and the haddock bite on Stellwagen Bank remains very strong.

    Joe from Belsan's Bait and Tackle reports that striper fishing in the North River was very good this week. There are plenty of school-sized fish with a few keepers in the mix. There have also been some bigger stripers caught on some of the outside ledges. There are some decent flounder inside the harbor, but not too many anglers have been targeting them. Haddock fishing on Stellwagen is fantastic
