Michael - you feel free to get those catch-reports in !! I'm sure that it'll provide fabulous encouragement to other anglers from your region !! Come on . . . . . . no holding back on usHi, Welcome to the forum i fish on the essex estuaries practically live on the shore. Slow start this season but managed to catch 6 bass so far this year on the feed shallow. Only wish it would warm up good fishing to be had on the estuaries if you stick at it. Anyway any information or help just ask.
