So we fished just a week in North Carolina this year. In that week we were only able to fish two days. Cold weather and loads of wind kept us off the water. But the two days we fished were really epic. Caught lots of big Albies and a really big Redfish. My pal Charlie… Continue reading North Carolina Madness
So here we are at the beginning of November. Boat is coming out of the water Sunday and off to North Carolina on Thursday to chase Albies. What a year it’s been in Long Island Sound. So many great clients and so many memorable trips. The year brought the biggest light tackle Stripers ever… Continue reading What a Year!
Fished with CT locals Tyler (a regular) and his brother AJ today. Both are good fishermen and as energetic as they come. We planned on fishing 8 hours but cut it short to 7. Found Albies but really struggled to get them to eat. Probably had 50 good shots and were only able to get… Continue reading Jumbo False Albacore
Fished with John from Lebanon CT and Florida. Fished more than a full day from 9:30 until dark. Had to be a record in terms of number of fish caught. Countless Stripers (50-100), maybe a dozen Bluefish, another half dozen herring and big False Albacore. All fish were caught on spinning gear with 6’,… Continue reading Record Breaker!!!!
Fished yesterday with Rob and his pal John from Southern CT. We wanted Albies on the fly rod so off to Montauk we headed. Finally had a gorgeous day with light winds and warm weather. We got to Montauk right at the change to the ebb tide and to be honest it was looking pretty… Continue reading Montauk Madness
I’m behind in fishing reports so here’s from Saturday and Sunday this weekend. The storm that was offshore made a mess of things last week and we weren’t able to fish at all. So first time out after the storm was with a wonderful couple from North Carolina. Janet and George are exclusively fly rod… Continue reading Fly Rod Exclusive
Fished with CT locals Bill, his 15 year old son Luke along with his pal Alex today. We left the dock at 8 and decided to head to Montauk to chase Albies. I was a little concerned to take the boys ‘combat’ fishing since they didn’t have a lot of experience. As it turned out… Continue reading Lots of False Albacore!!!!!!
Fished with Don and Jeremy from Rochester NY today. Great guys and this was day two of fishing them and we had a ball the last two day. Bonito, Bluefish and today an False Albacore Bonanza at Montauk. Fished Don and Jeremy on the same date last year and we blasted the Albies then… Continue reading Montauk Albies
Both trips this weekend were similar. Had to run 25 miles east to west to find fish at the exact right time on the tide. Both days we got lucky and found fish but we really had to work to find them. Albies arrived over a week ago now and were starting to get in… Continue reading Lots of Running
Fished with 2 good fishermen today from central CT. Both were really capable with a spinning and fly rod. We were on the hunt for Albies and while leaving the doc had Albies blow up on us before we got to the end of our pier. We threw at them and weren’t able to get… Continue reading Birds and More Birds
