Three Bays (Plymouth, Duxbury, Kingston) season in review

The 2019 season in our little Bay was an interesting one. During certain windows, it was some of the best fishing we’ve ever had for stripers 40″ and up. The ‘Three Bays”—made up of Plymouth, Kingston, Duxbury—are an absolute mecca for light tackle and fly fishing. If you’ve never fished the many channels, rips, eelgrass […]

Weekend Warrior: The Last Waltz

It’s feeling like the end of something. This weekend, we’ll most likely get our last decent weather window to target some buzzer beater stripers. We’ll be out there, but I’m not sure what to expect.   This has been a year of just that. I’m working on a season reflection now, but the patterns of […]

Weekend Warrior: Blowin’ in the Wind

Kinda feels like the end, doesn’t it? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I keep getting the questions. Where are the fish going to be after the storm? Will it blow the migration out to sea?

Is this a wise decision—the decision to ignore our striped friends and a possible season-best […]

The fall run is chaotic, fickle, wild, urgent. All of those adjectives and about a million more. Our fishing “runs” are typically predictable. There are patterns and templates to be followed. In the spring, we generally know, within a week or two, when and where the stripers will show up. During the doldrums, we have […]

Miles and miles: The urgency of the Fall Run

We covered some miles this weekend. And we found life almost everywhere we looked. Both days felt very fall-ish, which is not a feeling I can really describe, except to say that the days are getting noticeable shorter, work is getting busier, and the fish (bass blues and bones) are getting hungrier. These conditions do […]

Weekend Warrior: Chomp Chomp

Well, we’re in the midst of a ridiculous pogie bite all along Cape Cod Bay and up the South Shore; one of the best ones we’ve seen in a very long time. And while this bite has been going on for a few weeks now, I get the feeling the pogies may be shredded and […]
