So I fished Sean and his son Cohen From Windsor Locks, CT yesterday. Both very experienced fishermen that I’ve fished many times before. We were booked a couple weeks earlier and had to cancel for mechanical problems. Anyway we rescheduled for yesterday and WOW! Yesterday had to be the single best day in my… Continue reading Best Fishing in 30 years
Hi everyone and happy new fishing year. Covid slowed my start this year. As the governor had chartering closed down until mid June, I didn’t start fishing until the third week of June. Having said that, the fishing has been good. Plenty of Stripers this year, more bluefish than last year and the season seems… Continue reading Covid Slowed My Start
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
