MA CAG Fish-In: Saturday July 15th 2017

Recommended Posts

Venue: Merrimack River, Riverview Boulevard, Methuen, MA.

Time: I plan to be there at first light but show up earlier or later as you wish.

I will do a little prebaiting earlier in the week to encourage the fish to be in the area on the day. If Members plan to attend please sign up on this thread so I can decide how long a stretch of bank I should prebait. Participants from the New England area........or any other State for that matter......are welcome. Hope to see you on the 15th.

Iain

Mmm. I'm not exactly sensing a great deal of enthusiasm for this event so far. :lol:

That's not a problem........but if anyone else IS thinking of turning out on Saturday please let me know so I have an idea of how many spots tI need to prebait.

I will be there rain-or-shine.

Me as well! My brother and a friend may join if attendance looks to be low, assuming there's enough shore access. (We'll probably switch off with 4 rods anyways).

Hi Franky

Sounds great. Should be plenty of room for all.

See you on Saturday.

Prebaiting is done......from just upstream of the rocks on the left hand side to the "Tarzan" rope swing on the right hand side. I saw several fish rolling close to shore when I arrived.

Note that the water level is about a foot higher than normal due to recent rain.....and the banks are pretty muddy and slippery in places.  With this in mind, I would advise bringing waterproof footwear.

See you tomorrow.

When I left, everyone attending had caught one fish. Lots of fish rolling and a few lost to snags for me, but a successful fish in for sure! 

 

Here's a few pics that we took, I know Iain has more as well.

I look forward to both of you catching much bigger ones in 2017!
