September 27th- Big Bass are Chewing Bunker in the Sound

After that storm rolled through last night, it certainly feels like fall again. In its wake is a stretch of great weather and the fishing could not be better to take advantage of. This week saw MULTIPLE fish from 40-50 lbs caught on our local reefs and off the beach. Montauk and Block are nice, but catching big fish close to home is where its at! Captain Keith Salisbury of Lori Marie Charters reported excellent fishing with love bunker, and had this specimen to prove it. Tyler Burzenski wrangled this 46 lb bass off the beach in Old Saybrook this week fishing a fresh chunk of bunker (fresh bunker in stock!). While the bass bite is in true fall run fashion, these fish will seek [...]

The title says is all, folks. They are everywhere. From Westbrook to the RI boarder schools of false albacore are terrorizing small bait. The sound is loaded with a variety of bait right now. We are seeing peanut bunker in a couple different sizes and bay anchovies by the millions. As exciting as this is, it can make the fish "picky" when there is so much to choose from. take a look a the bait a single fish spit up while we were out on Tuesday. EXO jig fooled some fish eating a variety of small bait Our advice is to GO SMALL! Little jigs will out fish large ones in schools of finicky fish. As you can see in the above picture, the 1 [...]

August 23rd- Hardtail Season Starting off Strong!

Spanish mackerel! Yes, you heard me, there are spanish mackerel in the sound! Oh, and bonito, and chub mackerel. What a late summer bite! From Watch Hill to Fisher's Island to Long Sand Shoal, the sound has filled in pretty good with the hardtails we all hope to catch. Bonito are thicker to the east and anglers are doing work with double digit days being reported more often than not. Stuck on shore? No problem. Head to one of the South County breach ways for a shot from shore. While the bonito being caught on the West Wall, you can have as much success without going all the way to PJ. Closer to home, Joe Diorio got his sports on the funny fish recently and [...]

August 16th- Don’t Call me Chubby!

TURN VOLUME UP!!Chub mackerel are Voracious Eaters! To be a bait fish or a bluefish. I'm not sure whats worse right now! The blues are crushing bait of all sizes from our feet on the beach to the reefs 3 miles out. Lucky for us, they are happy to eat metals and poppers so our customers are having a blast with fish from 1 pound to 10 pounds depending on the school that pops up. Vertical jigging has been super effective on larger fish as the tried and true silver diamond jig with a tube tail has been flying off the shelves. Striped bass are mixed into the surface onslaught and popping plugs are doing work on these 24"-30" fish. We recently restocked on the [...]
