Casey and I had given the Oromocto river a try about a month ago and had no luck in the river. Nothing we happening after fishing for hours so we turned back to the main river. The summer has been a strange one as far as fishing goes.
But I received an email from Casey yesterday saying he had gone fishing with a fishing buddy, back to the Oromocto river and had a pretty good day.
Here’s his email:
Fished the Oromocto river on Sunday with a buddy in his boat.
He caught 17 bass and lost 4 or 5 big ones that broke his line or got off tail walking. Several were in the 17 ” range and hardly any under 12′.
I caught 18 fish, 6 or 7 bass, 15″ was the biggest. Caught several pickeral, a few chubby chubs and a couple of perch.
Was using white spinnerbait and that yellow mepps spinner.
It was a great day compared to the week before when I got skunked.
The other 2 guys fishing with us had 40 some fish, not sure of types, but lots of big bass. They went a bit further up river than we did. All fish were caught casting to shore under trees and along weed lines.
Glad Casey had a better trip than his last one. It always sucks to get skunked.
I like casting to the shoreline cover. Used to use a lot of jigs fishing the structure. I also have those days I get caught up a lot but you can get some of the biggest bass out of those spots.
