View Full Version : Duxbury Salmon??????

Fished there all day yesterday 7:00- 5:00
Two hit mooching ----0 trolling
Two boats -4 people 0 fish
This is unbelieveable. I have fished 3 of the last 5 days and have not even had a hit on my rigs trolling. Two days out of Bodega and 1 out the Gate.Weirdest year ever for me.
Haven't changed a thing
2lb balls 20-45 pulls *2-3 mph green rsk /Frankos-Green
Yet I am seeing other boats getting them.
Think I'll try praying again or better yet maybe sacrifice my boat---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Nah!!!!
Just have to be patient I guess.

You know the fish are there, they just aren't biting. I've had that happen to me too.

Try 60 to 90 pulls I have been fishing the same way you have but deeper and have had limits every time.

60-90 WOW How deep of water you in??????
At the duxbury buoy its around 80-90 ft???
Unless your right near bottom there.

well when trolling your ball doesnt go down 90ft it may only go 50-60ft unless your trolling with downriggers with a 12 pound ball...and also i catch all my fish at duxbury a lil on the deeper side like 50-70 pulls cause alot of the big spawners will hang around the reef and feed on bait above it. im trying to get my uncle to go out there..i love fishin duxbury..lots of big spawners! good luck!

We fished Duxbury on Sunday and it was PACKED with bait. Three anglers on board... three fish in the box, but we had to work hard all day for those three. :) (For the record, I threw back one legal fish... 21 inches). Anyway, one fish was stuffed with anchovies so I think there is just too much bait out there and the fish aren't hungry enough to bite. Just my opinion.

yeah its the same thing for the fish off ten mile beach...theres just so much bait in the water that the fish aint biting that much..
