Well, my fishing buddies tell me they are here but they don't want to take anything I am throwing at them. Fished for four hours Sunday on the western end of Pemaquid Beach without even a nibble to show for my exhaustive efforts. Used a blue fish rig with the orange and yellow foam balls and a striper slip rig both loaded with Mackerel and Herring (available frozen at the Wiscasset Trading Post, BTW). Oh well, that is why they call it fishing and not catching. After a miserably long week, it was refreshing to spend an incredible day breathing the crisp salt air and enjoying one of the few days this Summer when it wasn't raining!
Caution . . . when fishing on a busy beach keep your line high and pole positioned right at the water line and keep your eyes on it at all times. I had 10-12 "tourists" almost walk right into my fishing line and one swimmer who almost got snagged.
