Fishing Report -- September 12, 2014     
Striped Bass - There have been more schoolie sized fish in the river this week. Chunkers have been getting some at Saybrook Point. A few kayakers have been putting in long hours at night and getting some out on local inshore reefs, but it's been spotty. There have been very few reports from boats this past week.

Bluefish
- Where do I begin. They have been all over this week in force, from Old Lyme to Westbrook. Numerous daytime blitzes have been reported this week along the local beaches. There are a lot of small peanut bunker around now 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, fueled by massive amounts of bunker in the river.

Snapper Blues - Awesome action and they're big. The usual spots such as the Causeway, DEP Piers, Lieutenant and Blackhall Rivers are still excellent. They're pushing 7" now and seem to like a quicker retrieve. The snapper popper rig is king. 

Sea Bass
- Reports from Block Island and Montauk have been good and the increased limits make the trip worthwhile. Local reefs have been good but you have to pick through the shorts, including the fish the bluefish 'make' short.

Fluke - The fish close to home are congregating to head out and make their migration now, and if you can hit the large schools of fish, youll have an epic  trip, otherwise you may be just enjoying a nice boat ride.  This time of year, both Block Island and Montauk are good spots to look for those migrating fish.
Will Ward is leading the Flat Out Fluke Contest with a 10.30 pounder. Last day of the contest is Sept.21.

Blue Crabs - Probably still a couple of weeks of crabbing left, and its been a good but not great season.  Dont quit yet, this is the time to find some huge crabs.

Porgies - Very good reports still are coming in from Hatchetts, Bartletts, Cranes and Hens and Chickens.

Bonito - False Albacore - Improved!  Thursday was  the day to be on the water along Rhode Island with both Albies and Bonito from Napatree all the way to The West Wall at Point Judith. 

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.
