Bluefish are Here!

Blackfish finished with a bang here in CT with awesome catches right down to the closing day. But now all eyes are on striped bass. Daily we are hearing more and more reports of fish moving about the beaches and being caught on everything from sea worms to soft plastics. Focus on the edges of our river mouths and herring runs for best results. Bunker are showing up and that will really usher in the first push of larger fish. The Hyperplastic Dart Spins are flying off the shelves at the shop. Either on a jig head or rigged with their weighted swimbait hook, both varieties are producing well.
The first bluefish of the season are now confirmed, which is a very welcome sign here in Long Island Sound after their disappearing act last season. Most reports are coming from the Western Sound, but I am sure we will see catches push further east as the week progresses.
On the freshwater front, pre spawn bass are eagerly eating before they get on the beds and have been falling to slow twitched jigs and jerk baits. BHO’s own Evan Kamoen landed this fatty just this week on an after school outing in his yak.
