Fishing Report -- May 9, 2015  
We're continuing to hear excellent reports of striper fishing in the lower CT River this week. There have been numerous reports of 50+ schoolie trips from some of the regulars. Good news too is that some keepers are being caught now. This news of keepers coincides with reports from commercial shad fisherman that some good size bass are being seen in the nets too, fish up to about 36". The bass are hitting topwater spooks and poppers now and we've noted that the bigger fish seem to be active around the first few hours of the incoming tide. There are also tons of adult bunker in the river. This coming week should only get better for bigger fish.

Reports from the Housatonic River continue to be very good. They're getting them both upriver and near the mouth. It seems like the bigger fish are upriver right now chasing the herring while there are lots of schoolies near the mouth.
There are tons of bunker along the CT shorline including the Thames River, Niantic, Westbrook, CT River and New Haven Harbor.
A few winter flounder are being caught in the Niantic River and we've heard of good Flounder fishing reports from some of the tackle shops further west of us. We heard one good report of flounder being caught off of Madison this week.
Fluke and blackfish are closed in CT but open in RI. Fluke season opens May 17th in CT this year. Please be sure to sign up for our Fluke contest.
