    thought these were supposed to be full episodes? All I get is a short 1 min video. Am I doing something wrong?

    Never fished Merrimack river. Wondering when the run starts and best bait to use? I fish the Hudson River every year and do well. Just looking for some tips. Thank you .

    Caught 3 big stripers in Merrimack in Salisbury 6/23/18. Also saw what we think was a Short nosed sturgeon as some big fish that was brown on top and white belly jump out of the water twice prob 20-40 feet from our lil boat yesterday. Had a blast. Been trying to catch a big keeper for years and finally did! One 37”, one 33-1/2” and one 31” threw back as we were at limit.
