The dust has settled from Fluke Fest, and in its wake we have some awesome black seabass fishing to report. Since Monday the shop has been stirring with reports of excellent catches across the sound. The line heard most has been ” As long as your in 80′ of water…”. Small gulp tails and the smallest 1/3 oz Savage Swim Squid are really cleaning up right now. For the purest, we just loaded back up with LOCAL SQUID! The BSB are quick to inhale a fresh strip as well!
Striped bass fishing seems to be in a holding pattern. Steady as she goes until we get some real schools of bunker in our local waters. Fish are being found, however, with eels and chunk bait taking the main stay of the fish
Fluke fest was a resounding success and the local action really provided some nice fish for our weigh ins. Id say east of the CT river is fishing the best for fluke would be everyone’s best bets at this time. Big baits are taking the biggest fish, so go large for a doormat. We are now carrying the M3 Spoons and they have really been a hot product, with monster fish falling to these lures. For more info, click here for our latest gear review.
Offshore the bite continues to be hot and mixed bag trips seem to be the reg. Mahi, tuna, tiles, and even swords are all being caught and making for some great action.
