Long Island Sound Report

With the cooler weather the fishing is about to get red hot in the coming weeks. The sound is still quiet however there is bait stacked as far as the eye can see. It is only a matter of time before the bones and albies find their way west. The little tunny has been popping up around the Watch Hill Reefs. As long as we do not have an IRENE repeat then these stiff tailed devils should funnel through. Remember it is still early in the season. September is a time of transition! 

On a different note mature menhaden are locked in the western sound. A rare sight for this time of year. Bluefish in the upper teens are there for the taking. Focus on the smaller bait balls and work the edges or down below with a sinking line. Long story short this fall is shaping up to be a hell of a lot better then last years bust. 
On the freshwater scene the rivers in the area are incredible warm. Farmington River would be the best bet for trout. In the mean time carp fishing is going off. Nothing like feeding a finicky carp. A far from easy feat.

A secret night time spot. Yes these are schoolie stripers!
