July 5th 2008 – Rye Harbor / Piscatqua River area

July 5, 2008

Hit the big lake today (the Atlantic ocean) for some bait fishing. Hearing reports of good mackerel around I wanted to try it. We found the macs right away and proceeded to fill the livewells with them. Probably got around 70-80 all on sabaki rigs. Pitched live ones to the rocks and trolled with them without a single bite. Went all the way up into the river area twice and our second trip all the way to the 95 bridge. Nothing.

Later that day while jigging the bottom hoping to catch a flounder, I hooked into a fish I had never caught or seen before. It was a Sea Robing. What and odd looking fish but neat. Wanted to take a picture but while I had it along side the boat, I was confused at how to land it and lost it. Oh well. Day without fish.
