Very nice! With 400hp on that, does anything other than the prop touch water? Where is that? Newburyport?

In historic Newburyport but technically Cove Marina is in Salisbury.

200HO so about 440 hp. I find the river now has lots of traffic in front of me when you can touch 60mph. Plenty of 100 mph boats in the river so nothing special speed wise.

We were running 4 foot slop with the occasionaly 5-6 in the mid thirties. We slowed down before the boat wanted to all day. Been on express boats for decades we had to run 15 knots in this stuff. Have a wet keel downeast lobster boat also which we leave home for that reason even if rough.

Can't do it any more need that speed for extra fishing time.

Tucker time is slow enough.

Crazy that Id never made it out there until the beginning of this month. Friends were renting a house on Plum Island so we grabbed our gear and stayed with them a couple of nights. Surf fished from 10:30-1am the first night with only one fish pulled in down the shore from us (20). The next day we went to the mouth, and from 10-3 the guy beside me pulled in the only fish (18) all day out of 30 fishermen. Terrible fishing, but still better than work!

Fishing for stripers has been horrible due to all the other bait that is out there. Miles of schools of pogies and mackerel. The whales have been hanging out in the mouth and lobster traps off both salisbury and plum island.

Touch to catch when they have their pick of live bait schools. Still fun.
