Crossroads Bait and Tackle Fish Report > Tuna at the Shoals
Tuna at the Shoals

Jul 9, 2010

Yesterday the boat reel sushi out of Newburyport brought home two commercial size tuna at the Isle of Shoals. The first was 73 inches followed by a 75 incher. Around the Isle of Shoals livelining mackeral is your best bet. The small finger herring that I mentioned last week have moved north some tuna have followed them into Old Scantum and when you find this feed again throw your small metals. If you go and run Jeffries ledge I got a report from one boat that they lost three fish off of a black spreader bars with a white stinger.

The striper action in the river is still there with a few blues but not many. The mackeral have been touch and go in this area however we did load up at breaking rock yesterday with a few pollock mixed in but not too many. when all else fails take the ride to the Isle of Shoals, it is loaded with Macs. ballooning live bait has produced alot of fish out by the three mile line and drifting the mouth with Ron-zs is hot. Chunk Mackeral has been the bait of choice off of the beach and sea worms in the river, but don't go too far up river this heat wave has warmed it up a lot.

Flounder have been as strong as ever in this area fishing off of the south jetty, and if you really want to get into them head up off of rye harbor. Good Luck this week.
