This being the last week before the commercial bass season opens is by far your best chance of landing multiple fish over 35 inches.
Every trip in the last four days has had multiple short fish , numerous Slot fish (28-31") released and at least three fish over 35" on each trip.
It doesn't have to be with us but I highly recommend you quit Wishing and get fishing.

New Hampshire Fishing Report

Fishing enthusiasts in New Hampshire know that March can be a slow month for fishing. However, there is one bright spot: the Haddock season officially opens on March 1st. This means that anglers can start targeting this popular species, which can be found in abundance off the coast of New Hampshire during this time of year. While the Haddock season may be the main event in March, there are other fish to be caught as well. Winter Flounders are still abundant, particularly in sheltered areas. These tasty fish are known for their firm white flesh and delicate flavor, making them a favorite among seafood lovers. For those looking to try their hand at deep sea fishing in NH, Hampton is an excellent place to start. If you're planning a fishing trip to New Hampshire, check out my fishing trips and book with me!
