Re: Plum Island this weekend
Tattoobob, you must have passed right by me.
Got a really late start this weekend. Arrived at the refuge around 5:30PM Sunday 09/19, aired down, climbed into the waders, drove out, found "good" structure, set up not too far from my usual spot with first fish on by 6PM.
Beautiful evening/night. Slow but steady fishing. Picked up on the incoming particularly when the moon came out. Had to call it quits around 10PM (live to fish - but I have to work). Too bad, as fish were still biting. A number of just barely keeper sized and just under keeper sized fish, all very fat and in great condition.
All fish caught on left over seaworms (about 2 1/2 doz. selects) I had kept from the Friday 09/09. Brought them home in a small pail I filled with seaweed and wet beachfront sand and kept in a cooler all week. Smelled like hell even after rinsing with seawater last night, but worked great. Never got to the plugs or lures, got lazy and left that rig in the truck.
