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

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Besides fishing known structures such as rocks and sand bars, the best bet for finding fish are the birds working over schools of bait.

Seven-day forecast 

Fishing has improved in the Essex River and schoolies in the upper teens to mid twenty inch range are being caught with an occasional legal size striper in the mix. This should continue over the week.

Conditions 

With the exception of a couple of days when the fish were present but "tight lipped" the fishing has improved in the Essex River. Schoolies in the upper teens to mid twenty inch range are being caught.
