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
Fished Tyler from Colchester CT today. He’s a good fisherman and he really pounded the bluefish today. He caught fish after fish virtually all day long. Guessing 50 plus fish. And he caught all those while we were really on the hunt for his first false Albacore. We only had 1.5 hours of daylight left… Continue reading They’re Back!!!!!!!
Fished with father, Bobby, and son , Robert all day Sunday. Dad is a good fly fisherman and son can really handle a spinning rod. We were on the hunt for Bonita and Stripers. Started at Watch Hill at the end of the flood tide looking for Bonito and didn’t see a bird. Headed… Continue reading Fly Rod Fever!
Fished a young couple, Katarina & Rob, today. They were visiting from Philadelphia and wanted to give CT saltwater a try while on their vacation. Luckily it was flat calm today because as it turned out Katarina was 4 1/2 months pregnant. Both she and Rob have some fishing experience and we were… Continue reading What a Day!
Fished spinning gear with Ken from CT today. We only had a half day so I was anxious to get Ken on fish quickly. We hunted for 45 minutes and struggled to find any fish. Finally found a pile of birds on a western rip. Picked our way through some nice bluefish. Headed to… Continue reading Not so Hot to WOW!
Fished with Amanda and Tyler from Colchester, CT today. Tyler is an experienced fisherman and Amanda, well, not so much....but what she lacked in experience she made up for in enthusiasm. We only fished a half day but were lucky enough to get a couple dozen nice fish. Caught 6-7 Stripers to 28” and loads… Continue reading Amanda and Tyler Tore it Up.
Fished with Jeffrey and his two young sons from Columbia, CT yesterday. We only had four hours so we had to make the best of it. Started out with nearly slack tide at Race Rock. Not much doing there so we were off heading west. The tide started ebbing and it was game on. The… Continue reading Young but Plenty Good with a Spinning Rod
Yesterday was a supposed to be a 10% change of showers. We timed the tides and left the dock at 10 am. No sooner did we leave then it started pouring. We were all soaked by 10:30. We got over it quickly though...first cast, first rip....Bang!! Nice Striper on. Fished 4 or 5 different rips… Continue reading 10% Chance Of Rain for Anthony and His Pals
Fished Walter and his 3 pals from Minnesota yesterday. The first spot we fished, this gang of experienced freshwater fishermen caught 52 bluefish in about 2 hours. They caught fish on the first cast and it continued from there. Headed to another spot after the bluefish wore them (and me) out. The next spot proved… Continue reading Bang-Bang Fishing for the Federal Boys!!!
