Fishing wrap-up for the season

 Fishing Report: November 19th, 2012--an update for Fishermen and Friends

As the Nor'Easters and Hurricanes have blown through and our ocean fish have started to migrate south, we have switched gears and having a blast fishing the ponds.  With the warmer days and the cooler nights, pond fishing has been a riot for anglers of all ages. 
If you typically focus on Saltwater, it is worth changing gears and trying your luck in the Ponds. Long Pond and Sesachacha are actually holding Stripers along with big perch. Pickeral and Perch continue to be very active in Miacomet and Washing Pond and all of the other ponds on the Island will continue to provide bent rods and tight lines.
And most importantly, with the change in weather, and Christmas trees now lining Main Street, we want to say Thank You for another wonderful Season.  Bill Fisher Tackle's 49th season and our 9th season as owners was our most successful yet.  

We have another major thanks to give this season as well and that is to Jeremy, Dave, and Noah.  Jeremy, Dave, and Noah have become known by you all for their friendliness, can-do attitude and their willingness to share their immense fishing knowledge.  We hope when you see their friendly faces around town this winter or next season that you too will say thank you for all the work they put forth in helping to maintain Bill Fisher's tradition.

Our final thanks goes to the fishing gods...!  The 2012 season was amazing for many reason.  The weather was perfect, we only lost one day due to wind! It was one of the best Bluefin seasons in memory. We also had our BEST Falsie season, maybe ever.  These speedsters were large and came in large numbers, often mimicking the south shore bluefish battling for a deadly dick. While moon tails are fresh on the mind, squaretails were the story of May and June and they were big and plentiful with a phenomenal squid run.  The stories from the South shore beaches at the beginning of the season always made us run and grab our poles after work and head down to Point of Breakers or Cisco. 

While many of you lust for the exotics mentioned above, at the least we are sure you have bluefish to thank for wonderful memories from the summer.  IN the words of Fred Tonkin "Thank God for Bluefish." They always entertain, can bring a smile to anybody's face and can make a long day on the water worthwhile.

Thank You AGAIN for ALL your support!

Tight lines,
