Essex River - Crane Beach, Plum Island Sound, & Ipswich Bay

Tip of the week 

Slow retrieve with intermittent strips!

Seven-day forecast 

fish should still be on the move through this area and i don't see much changing as the conditions continue to improve


The fishing in Ipswich bay & the north shore has been good. We're seeing fish in the low 20 inch to low 30 inch range. Outgoing tide seems to be the better of the two right now.
