Fishing Report -- September 19, 2014     
Striped Bass - There are still reports of schoolie sized fish in the river this week from some of the light tackle boats. We've heard reports of small bass around the Race Rock lighthouse. Some smaller size fish have been caught around the Westbrook/Clinton reefs on wire line and parachutes. Also, some bass were caught along the shore of Plum Island plugging.

Bluefish
- They are still around in good numbers. Daytime blitzes are still being reported this week. There are a lot of small peanut bunker and anchovies around providing for good topwater action. The CT river is holding many large choppers. We've heard reports of good action at the Causeway and Saybrook Point as well as Pigeon Rip. Yesterday there were a lot of harbor sized blues blitzing off of Napatree.

Snapper Blues - Still here and large. The usual spots such as the Causeway, DEP Piers, Lieutenant and Blackhall Rivers are still excellent. They're pushing 7" now.

Sea Bass - Reports from both Montauk and Block Island have been excellent, but if you're going to pass it anyway, stop at Cerberus Shoal, as we've heard good reports from there too.   If you know some local spots, the general reports have been good there too, but look out for bluefish, as they can make a keeper short!!

Fluke - This week we heard less about fluke, probably due to lack of effort.  There are still some fluke to be had, try deep in the water between Hatchetts and Black Point.  Fluke closes on 9/21 in Connecticut.  Will Ward is still leading our fluke tourney with a fish that tipped the scale at 10.3 pounds
 Last day of the contest is Sept.21.

Blue Crabs - The crabs still seem to be hanging on, and there are some big ones to be had!  Make your sauce yet?

Porgies - Good reports in general, but not good everywhere.  We heard a few complaints this week of guys having trouble catching in the western end of the sound, but that didn't seem to stop other guys from bringing in some giants to weigh.  Try Hatchetts, Bartletts, Cranes, or Hens & Chickens

Bonito - False Albacore - Early this week Rhode Island was on fire. Several boats had over 25+ fish. The last few days have been a lot tougher as it seems the fish are spreading out. The best reports seem to be along the south side of Fishers Island from the Race Point area all the way to Wicopesset Passage. They are also at Montauk. We still haven't heard of any reliable action in the Sluiceway or Plum Gut yet. One of the surprise hot lures this year has been the new Shimano Colt Sniper jig in 42gram size.

Carp - Yes you read it right carp. It's amazing how many customers we've spoken with are into carp or would like to be.
There's been some consistently good catches in the Connecticut River. We've decided to support this year round fishery for something that's within every ones reach. We are stocking a good selection of carp tackle and baits. Some of your striped bass tackle can even be put on double duty.
