Fishing Report -- August 22, 2014     
Striped Bass - Lately when it comes to stripers I feel like I'm reporting on the fisheries condition. It hasn't improved overall, but still has a few spots of real good fishing. Block Island is the epicenter of numbers of big bass and some lesser but inconsistent similar action is at Montauk and the Canal. Unfortunately this is the last buffalo hunt.
We have heard of some local catches at Cornfield, Plum Gut and Six Mile Reef. Also catches of schoolies along the RI Shore are on the upswing.

Bluefish
- Decent blues at Plum Gut but not as good at the Race although we heard it's improving with smaller blues. Some big blues are still in the Lower Connecticut River with chunks of fresh bunker catching most. Long Sand Shoal also has decent sizes and lesser sizes at Six Mile and Southwest Reefs.
The WICC Bluefish Contest is scheduled for August 23-24. You can sign up here until 7pm on August 22. We'll be open all night Saturday for weigh-ins.
 
Snapper Blues - Good to very good action at the DEP Piers, Saybrook Point, Causeway and estuaries leading into the Connecticut River.  

Sea Bass
- Good reports coming in from Montauk and Block Island with some good sizes. Locally mostly shorts and small keepers.

Fluke - A lot of serious flukers are heading to Block and Montauk with some doormats being reported. We had one reports from an insider who thinks they're starting to school up for the migration.
Will Ward is leading the Flat Out Fluke Contest with a 10.30 pounder

Blue Crabs - Better reports this week in the Connecticut River. Trappers at the DEP Piers are doing OK but we're still not hearing much from the scoopers. This is the peak of the season.

Porgies - Good to very good reports of porgies at most reefs. Sizes and numbers are good, the smaller reefs and breakwaters have some impressive catches. Were not getting any complaints.
It's going to be a poor sandworm supply the next few days, look for alternative baits such as squid or clams.

Bonito - Not any fresh reports this week, even the frigate mackerel have thinned out.


Summer hours.
