Man Rescues Striped Bass

Seacoast Online: The captain of the Atlantic Queen fishing and whale-watch boat [in Rye, NH], Todd Henderhurst was motoring a skiff Saturday night [July 15] when he helped rescue a striped bass caught in a balloon.

“This is my 11th season on the boat (Atlantic Queen) and I’ve never seen that before,” he said.

Henderhurst said he was motoring out to the Atlantic Queen’s Rye Harbor mooring when he saw a “balloon swimming around the harbor.” Balloons normally float, he said, but this one was going against the current.
