    Until yesterday afternoon it has been too hot to enjoy fishing. Weather was borderline as it was, not crazy hot but super humid.

    Got out at 4pm and personally expected no fish until evening at earliest. Pushed off shore and caught a smallmouth on my first cast barely 10 feet from shore. That can be the kiss of death and it was until about 6:30.

    Then the fish turned on and started biting. No small fish but no big fish either. Everything was in the 14-16" size range but the action was good and the three of us (also my buddies Steve and Chuck) caught a bunch of fish. Fish continued to bite when it got dark. We headed in at about 10pm and I caught a smallmouth on my last cast about 10 feet from shore. Maybe we should have just stayed there?

    Classic mid-summer afternoon/night action which was good to see. The size range was good too even though we caught no big ones. Key was there were enough mid size fish to keep the 4-6" fish away. Bass are getting ready for prime late summer/early fall action.

    I think we may catch some big fish next time, hopefully worthy of a picture. Gonna try some night time shots with the spot from my headlamp.

    Just hanging with the guys this afternoon at Floyd Bennett Airfield in Jamaica Bay, Brooklyn just shooting the breeze. All of a sudden the beach right in front of us (in tight) started exploding with cocktail bluefish (2-5 lbs.) chasing peanut bunker. We jigged a bunch for about 20min. & then they disappeared as quickly as they appeared. It was unexpected but fun while it lasted.

    Mid-August fishing is usually spotty like that. Feast and Famine.

    September-early October is always good.

    And then it's time to ski! Good fishing like this year makes the time fly.

    Shocked it is this low. Saw $5.99 in western Mass and couldn't believe it. My buddy in Freeport was getting $2.30 a pound and it was average fishing at about 1.25 per trap, figured it would stay higher for longer.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    Butter = meh, really can be exercised off....but the Salt = takes more than exercise for me...
    Can't wait to get back to skiing, hopefully this winter.....to essentially get back into shape.

    I'm not a lobster guy, buy my Dad loves the stuff. The last time I took my Dad to MA to visit relatives was when he was pushing age 90. It was around 2009, four years before he passed away. We took a drive one day over to Hampton Beach, NH and up the coast to Southern ME. My Dad had a lobster roll for lunch and then he had a lobster dinner at Browns Lobster Pound on the way back the same day. My wife did the same. I'll eat fried clams. Lobsters look too much like aliens.


    PS: don't know how long Browns has been there but my folks made visits to friends at Hampton Beach as far back as the 1930s and always got lobster along the way.

    Eat at Browns a few times a year. I live about 20 minutes away. They and Markeys across the street have both been around 50+ years. We gravitate towards Browns as it's BYOB

    I view Browns and Markeys as Red Sox Vs Yankees.

    It is either one or the other for me and I go with Browns. BYOB does help.
