February 2020 Meeting

Busting Boulder Fields: Beyond the Basics

Boulder fields are found throughout the entire Striper Coast, but are particularly prevalent in New England. They are some of the “fishiest” locations along our coast, and tend to be very consistent all season long in holding fish. They are also some of the most challenging places to fish, and require dedication, knowledge, and skill to access completely. Boulder fields are Jerry’s favorite place to fish, and he will be discussing gear and plugs, tactics and tips, and key variables in the understanding the structure and how to unlock it. He will provide quality information for making the most of the opportunities that exist “in the rocks”. Jerry will also be sharing new video and photography in support of his talk.

Jerry Audet is a dedicated surf fisherman, who fishes both plugs and flies. He regularly fishes a huge swath of the coast from Long Island Sound to The Gulf of Maine. Jerry loves trying to unlock the secrets of an area or particular spot; he is far less concerned with reeling the fish in or the “fight”. As such, he has become particularly known for his in-depth discussions of fishing philosophy, structure analysis, and plug/fly presentation. Jerry is a regular contributor to Surfcasters Journal, The Fisherman, and On the Water. Jerry also is an endurance athlete, holds a PhD in Physiology and a BS in Biology, and is working to help conserve the Striped Bass for future generations. He resides in Worchester County, MA.
