If you live in Hull, I think you do not have a choice but to drive by a lot of spots to fish. I think I would have a hard time keeping my eyes on the road certain times of the year.

Nice fish, well done, any time you can get two fish that size in one night from shore is a major accomplishment. It is always a motivator to get back out there and I am sure you will. .

That's a pretty good back to back! Very fishy area. I've made a trip to World's End, but didn't find anything that good. Congrats.

Thanks guys basically any where around here this time of year with an outgoing tide fishing is awesome. Where I caught this one has shut off the herring are no longer running so the fish leave the area and head into the bay. In cohasset I caught one on every cast a couple days ago they were only 14"-16" but still awesome. Click the image to open in full size.

Nice fish. Right now people are catching 40-50 in about 5 hours on the Miramichi on flies.

So far I have been blanked. Each place I fish this year seems to be lifeless. No bait, no bass.

The river is high but the stripers are moving in and the salmon are running already. Every report from last week was fish are moving in. The stripers though have been running for the last 3 weeks.
