So I’ve been fishing non-stop with clients and clobbering the Stripers but for some reason we’ve caught relatively few big Bluefish this year. By mid July the reefs should be loaded with Bluefish on both tides but, so far , my clients are 20-1 catching Stripers. Water temp is behind this year to be sure… Continue reading Where are the Bluefish?
Fished two great groups yesterday. We fished from Plum Gut to Watch Hill and everywhere in between. Morning trip was Paul and Kyle from Las Vegas. Both really good fishermen with lots of SoCal fishing experience. We had to put some miles on the boat but by the time it was over they both boated… Continue reading Two Great Trips!!
Fished with a really fun family from CT yesterday. Father Jon and three adult kids. We only hit 3 spots in the eastern sound and clobbered the fish at every location. Stripers to +- legal size were caught with abandon. At one time I couldn’t see the other side of fish busting on the surface… Continue reading Clobbered the Stripers Today!!
Fished a really early (5AM) half day with Todd from CT. Todd is a very accomplished fly rod caster. We ran all over and could only scare up a few small Bluefish. Had stripers the trip before but this trip just didn’t gel. We hit the Thames River, CT River, Millstone, Plum Island and… Continue reading Really Good Fly Fisherman
Fished with Mark and his son Noah today. They were in town looking at colleges for Noah and took the afternoon off to do some fishing. Noah was a very accomplished fisherman and he needed to be today. We ran 60 miles and got a couple Bluefish and schoolie Stripers before finally landing a decent… Continue reading Nice Day and a Few Fish
Fished a really good fly rod-er today..... JD from upstate New York. He had an early morning commitment so we could only fish from 5-9am. As we were making ready to leave the dock the fog really rolled in and killed our plans for heading to Watch Hill. All we could do was put-put… Continue reading Fish on Every Rock.
Been fishing regularly all last week. In all cases had really good fishermen (and women) on board. Fished both fly rod and light tackle. Have had to run Long Island Sound from New London a few miles in opposite directions to find fish but luckliky have been able to scare up Stripers on all trips.… Continue reading Striper Showing Watch Hill and CT River
Fished with Tom and his son, Joey, from New Jersey today. Both have fished with me before but had never caught a False Albacore. Today started early, before 7, in pea soup fog. Had to use the radar to get anywhere for the first hour and a half. No sooner did the fog lift and… Continue reading Fog and Few Fish!!!
Today started slow. Looked for fish for a couple hours and couldnt find anything. I was sure there were fish just not sure where. I looked at the right tide in the morning at Beaufort inlet and nothing. Ran to the Hook still nothing. What the heck? So I decided to head west which I… Continue reading More big False Albacore!
Weather today started our clear, cold and windy. Ended up clear, light wind and 60 degrees.....a beautiful day for fishing. Found birds on bait balls right away and it didn’t take long to get in to fish. The fish today stayed under their baitball/s all day and would occasionally work over the bait ball; tearing… Continue reading False Albacore Blasting Bait Balls & Lots of Big Fish!!!
