Capt. Joel Koch Portsmouth - Sal****er Fishing Report

We had good Striped Bass fishing with at least 2 keepers on each trip this week.
Fishing was good and we mixed trips this week with some trips we used live bait
And other trips we used chunk bait. On two days we even got into some short
surface action with pods of smaller stripers on the surface. We caught them
on casting plugs and rubber lures. The feeds didn't last long but we were
in the right place at the right time, and fished them hard for the 15 minutes they
were on top.
Saturday was a fun trip with long time customer Paul and his wife and young children.
Everyone had a blast catching bait, mackerel and pollock, and then we spent some time
catching stripers. Just a lot of family fun.
This week we also caught a sea bass, our first for the season. Every year I get a few, they
make for good eating even though much smaller than striped bass. Sea Bass are more
common south of us where sometimes party boats will run trips for them. In NH they are
rare and there aren't any size limits on them, although anything less than 14" is just too
small to keep.
Tight lines, Capt. Joel
