Reader Gallery: …And Saltwater Fishing Takes Over!

It’s that time of year when so many of our readers transition to the salt, full time. And the dominant species, at this time of year, is our beloved striped bass. By shore, boat and kayak, striper photos seem to rifle in with a snappiness that mirrors the enthusiasm of the excited anglers that chase them. Of course, we still get our freshwater pics and we’ll see a few other briny species as well, but May and June belong to the bass and, by the time we’re piecing together our next gallery, we should be seeing sea bass, fluke, tuna and maybe even a weakfish or two. If you’d like to see your photos published here, please email them to [email protected]. And make sure to monitor our New England Fishing Forecast on YouTube where your photos can earn you cool prizes.
