Fished three really nice young guys from Providence, RI today. They are all cooks and wanted fish to eat so off we went. Trip was just a half day but we ended up with a cooler full of Scuo, Black Seabass and Bluefish. Had to give the guys a bucket to get the fish home… Continue reading Cooler was Full…Need a Bucket!!!
Fished with one of my best fly rod guys today….Todd. He can really handle a 9wt….one of the top 2 or three casters I fish. Todd’s a purist and only want to use the fly rod. At slack tide we fished the rocks behind Fishers Island and found several Stripers willing to eat the fly… Continue reading Fly Rod or Bust
I’ve been doing a lot of family fishing over the last week. Even though Porgies aren’t my thing it’s always good to take young kids to a secret Porgie spot to keep them from getting bored. Water temp in the Eastern Sound is up to 63 degrees so , more and more each day fish… Continue reading Water Temp is Up and Fishing is HOT!
So I fished a double yesterday. The afternoon trip was remarkable in that on the flood tide I finally found birds on bait with fish on top. I was fishing with Dick from East Lyme CT. Dick is an experienced fisherman and our hope was to get in some Striper fishing so off we went… Continue reading Birds and Fish on Top…..Finally
Fished with Chuck and his 12 year old daughter Jen yesterday. I’ve been having luck on the ebb tide but not so much on the flood tide. Jen changed our luck yesterday though. She caught a 30-35lb Striper and was able to get the big fish to the boat. Her nice fish was one of… Continue reading Big Striper for Jen
So I fished Jamie yesterday. He’s really good with a fly rod and his results prove that when conditions are tough practice makes a difference. Yesterday was windy, gloomy, foggy, and not the best for fishing. But Jamie caught fish when every opportunity presented itself. First stop was Plum Gut ...we chased birds on the… Continue reading Practice Makes Perfect.
Tough week for weather. Not so bad that it’s turning cooler but the winds have made matters un-fishable most of the week. Cohen and Sean (both excellent fishermen) braved then wind and waves with me yesterday though and were rewarded with some excellent fishing. We still didn’t get into any Albies but had plenty of… Continue reading More Fish than Wind
So some bad wind kept me off the water much of the week. When we could get out there were lots of fish but try as we might very few False Albacore. Plenty of topwater fly rod action for Stripers, Mackerel and Bluefish but the hard tails are difficult to come by this year. Montauk… Continue reading Lots of Fish….Only a Few Albies
Fished with Scott from Boston area and his son Tom who recently moved to NYC. What a day we had. We found enough False Albacore that we were finally able to really fish for them all day. Found either Albies, Bluefish or Stripers everywhere we fished. And we found lots of fish. BTW the Albies… Continue reading ALBIES ARE IN !!!!
So fished three full days Saturday, Sunday and Monday. All three trips had excellent anglers and all had Albie Fever. The Albies haven’t shown yet this year (which is late for them) until today! Didn’t find a lot of fish but they are definitely back. Blasting around the reefs and flying through the air chasing… Continue reading Albies finally here!
