Well it seems that the Pollock are back in the Piscataqua and it looks like the bigger linesides are right behind them!
Fished New Castle this weekend and was pretty successful handlining for Pollock, which I then hooked through the back and tossed out. Took three fish over thirty. The biggest was 36" - 18 lbs.
I talked to some others and they were having good luck with schoolies and even a couple of blues.
See you on the river!
