Default Fresh fish in the haba! I love that dirty water....oh....

Boston your my home!!!!!!!

Back!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D First fresh fish of the season for us today.

We launched the inner Boston Haba today at 12:30 pm. Went to the hot spot and casted small plastics. First couple were holdovers with no sea lice. Next few casts revealed a nice size fish in the 30" range, as it got closer I started to see sea lice all over the eyes and tail area. Loaded with sea lice. I tried to hang on to it as I yelled at Mark to come over and check it out. It rolled and the hook came out. Where there is one there was more. We tossed over into the mud flats where worms have been plentiful, I hooked up again with another fish of similar size. This time I landed it. As it came closer it emptied its stomach out of Sea Worms and 1 herring. It feels like Christmas! Measured 30" on the button, nice and healthy and showing a ton of little brown critters. What a battle on 10 lb power pro and 15lb leader.


We stayed in the area scoring schoolies that were also carrying some sea lice.

Dont you feel like dancing?


Let the games begin!

Sea-

I dont know nothing about sea lice growing in certain temps on fish.....Todays temp in the haba was exactly 53.3 degrees on the fish finder. If you heard that sea lice cannot be found on fish at that temp your source of information is wrong.

Here is a link about Sea Lice

http://www.strategicthoughts.com/rec...licecount.html

It seems that Norway is having problems with high counts of sea lice in fish. April has been the worst. I would think Norway in April is a lot colder then the 53.3 degrees we had today in May in Boston Haba.

I would think warmer water would kill sea lice. I could be wrong. Since as far back as I can remember Sea Lice has been on Stripers that first arrive and die off as the season progress.

I have only got one or two with sea lice. maybe it was early in the year? I thought it was later. I wasn't sure, thats why I asked
Thanks for the info.
I was thinking like cod, getting wormy when the water warms up I guess.

I thought that sea lice had more to do with salinity than temperature. I would think like any parasite they would swell up and burst in lower salinty (fresh or brackish water) so the rivers might not see them as much as open ocean. Good question though. Ill have to read up on it now.

Edit** update. This article actually seems to imply the opposite of what I just said. at least in some species cept this one Lironeca :?

click here to the Md dnr fisheries article

BTW congrats on breaking the ice riddler. !!!! 8)

Rid, I'm heading out this weekend for the first time this season...
What are your recomendations for spots, I'm lost since I haven't been out yet...

I know I should head up to the various damns...what about Black Creek?
I would assume the soft plastics are the key...
