LAST MONTH the United States Olympic Committee announced that Boston had made the short list of four cities for a possible American bid to host the 2024 Summer Games.
More than 40 teens from Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston took part in the 4th Annual Fan Pier Celebrity Youth Fishing Tournament on Thursday, July 17th.
The tournament began at 7:30 with a quick breakfast at on the docks and a few encouraging words from tournament host Joe Fallon, who reminded the captains and anglers that he expected everyone that this event is about “catching not fishing”.
VIF Studio won the 2014 Marvin Windows and Doors Architects Challenge Showdown, beating out 149 other entrants. Over the course of five weeks, the public was tasked to vote on which inspiring project deserved recognition as Showdown winner.
It seems the only thing fishermen can depend on this season is a weekly lamentation about the unpredictable striper bite.
A typical striper season, if such a thing exists, is most strongly influenced by the water temperature. As the chill leaves the water in spring, striped bass arrive from the south. Bigger bass arrive through June, and the fishing peaks for a few weeks before it declines through July, as the inshore waters get too warm. When water temperatures drop in the fall, the bite gets active again, with more fish moving inshore.
