I have been spending the last week or so in Pleasant Bay harvesting some of my clams that I've been growing on my grant. As I pass through little bay I note where in a few short weeks we will be catching small schoolies one after another. If you haven't fished this spot or don't know where to go, email me and I will give you what information I can. Basically it is any where the current runs strongly enough to hold the fish. Most of the known and marked channels between the flats are very good, but there are several places where there is just a subtle and gradual depth difference from the flats to the deeper water of the channel. Sometimes these basins or shallow channels are funnels for the fish to travel through. They are hard to find as they are usually covered in eelgrass, but if you poke around at low tide you will find them. After you have them located, fish them with a incoming or outgoing tide. If anyone has questions regarding a good boat ramp, or where to fish and what to use, please don't hesitate to email me with the question.
The MSBA show was great, I met a lot of really nice folks. I will be doing that show again next year. Thanks for filling in the "Win a Trip" forms also, they allow me to gather a mailing list of interested people I meet. In my last report I mentioned that I will pick the winners name at the end of the year for the free trip. I suppose I should clarify that the end of the year is when I put the boat in the water in May !
