Fishing Report -- August 28, 2015  
STRIPED BASS- The reports have been scarce this week. Some of the locals out drifting eels at night report lots of eels being chopped up by the bluefish making it hard to get to the bass. Earlier in the week there were small bass blitzing on top at the Gut mixed in with Bluefish. There were also some school bass mixed with bluefish @ Bartletts reef throughout the week.  We also heard of a large topwater blitz of smaller bass at Watch Hill and Sugar Reefs a few days ago.

FLUKE- This week we heard of an improved bite in the mouth of the river, fish to 26" or so.  We weighed in a 7.5 lb. fluke a few days ago caught off of Montauk where fishing has been good.  Block Island still seems to be the place to be, where we are still hearing of limit catches, mixed with pesky seabass.  Starting Sept 1st, that's gonna be a good combination, you'll be able to bring five of those seabass home.  A lot of people are reporting great Sea Bass fishing this year as well, as long as you are in deep water near humps.

PORGIES-   Still catching but it hasn't been easy for many people. It seems porgy fishermen who go deep are finding more sea bass than porgies.  Try Hatchetts, Black Point or Bartletts.

BLUEFISH-  There are still lots of bluefish in the area.  Some are big, too.  We've heard of almost daily topwater blitzes of blues this week between the mouth of the CT river, Soundview Beach in Old Lyme and Black Point in Niantic.   A couple of days ago, there was an epic blitz in Niantic Bay, with loads of birds, bait, and bluefish all on top and plenty for everybody.  They are still in the Gut and the Race areas. Last week we weighed in a 16.5 lb fish brought in by an angler scouting out areas for the upcoming WICC Bluefish contest this weekend.

BLUE CRABS- It seems that the crabbing is finally getting good. We heard of some good sized ones too. They've been getting them in North Cove and at the Causeway.

SNAPPERS-  There has been good fishing at the DEP Dock and also at the Dock and Dine. Still a lot of small snappers which is odd for this time of year.

BONITO- We heard some good reports this week from Rhode Island. The fish have been seen from the Weekapaug area all the way east to Point Judith.   We spoke to a customer who was "sure" that he saw them at Bartletts too, but couldn't catch 'em.
