Fishing Report - October 3,
Striped Bass -. There
were a few stripers caught in the river this week, as far north as
Essex. Rhode Island had some nice size fish on night tides at the
Breachways. The fall run has started at Montauk now, with a fair
number of teen size fish.
Bluefish - The CT river is holding plenty of choppers. We've
heard of them in Essex all the way down to the mouth. The river is
still loaded with bunker and the bluefish are taking advantage. Both
Saybrook Point and The Causeway have been good, while the DEP has been
quiet. There have also been scattered schools on the surface from
Branford to Rhode Island chopping up Super Flukes and stealing Deadly
Dicks while taking advantage of the abundant bait supply.
Snapper Blues - Starting to
thin out now. If you get em, they're gonna be big!
Sea Bass -The best year
we've ever seen. Look for deep structure. The Bloody
Grounds and Cerebrus Shoal are two good examples.
Blue Crabs - Very few
Porgies -The Sea Bass
fishermen report HUGE porgies mixed in with their quarry.
Bonito - False Albacore -
We've heard some good reports again this week. Some of the areas to try
might be the Watch Hill area, the West Wall, around Fishers Island/Race
Rock as well as around Plum Island.
- The CT Season will open on friday, October 10th. We'll be
ready with LOADS of crabs, Jigs and Rigs, and dont forget to
enter our annual Blackfish Contest.
