May 18th- Seabass Opens Tomorrow!

Humpheads are only a day away! The much anticipated start of the seabass season is tomorrow and it looks like a peach of a day! Squid will be the best bait to use, especially the load of fresh, off-the-boat squid we will be processing Sunday morning! It wont get any fresher than that!For those looking to jig, give the Savage Squish Jig a try. These have been proven seasbass slayers and a blast to fish with. They are equally as deadly on striped bass and bluefish as well. Load up before your trip! On to the rest of the action...Fluke Fishing saw a small uptick this week, but boats had to travel to find them. Joe Baggs Nantucket Flukies in 1/4 oz fished as a [...]

Long Island Sound is Heating Up!

While many were fishing for fluke this week, more were catching sea robins unfortunately. The fluke that are being caught are coming form the warmer waters off the north shore of Long Island. Bright Spro Bucktails with a Tsunami Glass Minnow teaser above it are the best delivery methods right now. Tipped with Gulp! and a spearing its the best combination to secure a keeper this early season. The weakfish are mixed in among the birds and the fluke and keepers are being caught on the same tackle.Scup have showed up in droves especially to the west. You can make quick work with a sabiki rig or a 3 hook hi/lo rig this time of the year. Bigger striped bass are filtering into the sound [...]

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 [...]

BHO Featured in Yankee Magazine!

All Aboard the Hues Cruise | Connecticut’s Lower Connecticut River Valley When fall arrives in the Lower Connecticut River Valley, water and sky are as alive with wildlife as ever. Right through October, the river-veined core of Connecticut clings to a fall stage that can only be called … denial. Virginia creeper vines slithering up tree trunks are caramelized red; the river banks shine gold, signaling upland maples it is time they, too, relinquished their green. Yet water and sky are as frenzied and alive as ever. The Connecticut—New England’s mightiest river—gets a shot of saltwater from Long Island Sound as it nears the end of its 410-mile run, creating an estuarine environment that sees a flurry of wildlife activity in the fall. Book a [...]
