I fished a popular MA-9 Beach Saturday morning for a couple of hours and was surprised to see it nearly empty of fishermen. Saw lots of juvenile sand lance near the beach with birds and small shaker silvers feeding on them. The thick fog kept the sun off the water, but no larger resident silvers or chinook seemed to be around in spite of the nice currents. I was about to leave after catching several shakers when my clouser was whacked by a nice silver. After setting the hook it pulled me down the deserted beach a ways before I could tire it out, a very well fed 4 pound silver hen stuffed with baby sand lance. My first silver for 2012 and very tasty on the BBQ. I fished the same beach Sunday morning, arriving later than I wanted. Board members GoFish, DryFlyLarry, and Mtskibum16 were already there and had each hooked up on silvers earlier. New weather brought SW wind and drizzle but still plenty of baitfish and birds feeding on them. I had a couple of good strikes but no hook-ups. DryFlyLarry hooked up next to me and landed a frisky resident silver. Fishing died after that, but it was nice to see more salmon cruising the beach and to fish in good company.
