July 27, 2017 Fishing Report

Monday's Cold front left much to be desired on Long Island Sound. Keeper Fluke are very scarce at this time. Scup season is definitely upon is with large groups schooling in shallow water 20ft and below. Rocks, Shallow water and Skimmer clams are working best. We suggest Hi Los to maximize your catch potential. We are seeing several Black Sea Bass in this mix but deeper water is where you’ll do best. The Striper bite has moved East but a seemingly endless influx of bait from adult menhaden to peanut bunker continue their steady migration into our waters. Bluefish are certainly...

  The Striped Bass are still biting this week and should stick around for a while with the amount of bunker here. Overall we can say this has been a great year for bait! It's abundant and easily accessible to hungry fish.   Summer Blues are trickling in but not in significant numbers. Yet. From harbors, beaches and all the way out to mid sound schools of adult Menhaden have flooded the area. Unfortunately many schools are without Bass and Bluefish, but we are only coming across a a handful of schools being harassed. From dusk to dawn, overnight and low-light conditions are your best shots...

Warm temperatures have brought the Flounder out of hiding. We are seeing nice fish of both the Connecticut and New York side of Long Island Sound. Although Sand Eels remain the meal of choice for these flatties, more and more fish are showing up with bellies full of juvenile Scup between 3-4” in length. A white Spro tipped with Sand Eel is our suggestion for success this weekend. Striped Bass continue their migration East. Solid reports are coming in daily pointing to the night bite as the best time to find big breeder fish. Not much has changed as far...

  Below average water temperatures in Western Long Island Sound have kept the Fluke bite at bay for the time being. We are still seeing keepers but with less frequency than we would like. Jigging brought on Sea Robins with every drop this weekend. Our keeper size fish were harvested on sandy bottom by using “dead sticking” larger 8” squid rigs tipped with squid strips and sand eels. As it always goes, Fluke fishing is May is either hot or not. Striped Bass and Blues continue on their migration invading the Sound in search of Bunker. Large schools of adult...

May 24, 2017 Fishing Report

Spring run is in full effect in Long Island Sound. Blues, Bass and Fluke are in. Over the last four days we have seen an influx of large Bunker schools in both Bridgeport and Fairfield. Although water temperatures remain on the cooler side of 55 degrees the stage is set for an epic summer. Bait schools that sat largely undisturbed over the weekend are now getting busted by daytime Blues and evening Striped Bass. Bunker is key at this stage in the game and fresh is best! Want to intercept a migrating fish? We suggest live-lining in shallow water between...
