  • Stellwagen bite was good before the storm came through tuesday night.  Southwest corner had tuesday morning activity with network member connecting on a 96incher.
  • The blow seemed to push the fish to the northwest as Middlebank and the North west corner had the action by wednesday and thursday.  Commercial fleet had multiple hookups on middlebank thursday.
  • The sword has been holding fish and that continued through Thursday.  Also alot of signs of life at southern crab jut not as many boats fishing the area and running to the sword.  An area to check out over the weekend.
