I've been fishing up North in NH quite a bit lately and it's been pretty good in the Portsmouth area, particularly in the back rivers. Some nice bass, but nothing huge.

Spent some time in Vineyard Sound last week, pre-Earl, looking for False Albacore and Bonito. We spotted a couple of schools of Albies just as we cleared the jetties at Green Pond. We followed them across the Sound and ended up over by State Beach on the Vineyard where there were some more scattered schools of both Albies and Bonito. They were spread out and tough to get on. I managed to get a huge black seabass whihc was delicious on the grill that night.

I took a bussman's holiday last Sunday and Capt. Whiskey Dick and I headed out of Marina Bay in search of tuna. We managed a nice slot fish on a spinning rod. It taped just shy of 58 inches and weighed between 90 and 100 pounds.
