Posted By Dave Anderson

 It’s that time of year when the seasons start fighting with each other. We’ve been enjoying an extended period of ‘shorts and flip-flops’ weather here and now things are starting to look a little more uncertain.

ALBIES SHOW OFF DELAWARE

Location: DE, MD & Chesapeake Bay

 Finally a week with some fine weather and as an added bonus, some red hot striper fishing once again. Fortunately the bite is close to home of all the charter and open boats sailing to and from Montauk Harbor. Great Eastern at Porgy Hump, Pollock Rip, the Slot and the ...

FALL IS LATE

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
 Water temps are higher than normal for late-October, I figure Mother Nature felt like she owed us one after the twin hurricanes. Blackfishing seems to be at the top of most lists right now and the bite has been getting better and better. Stripers are also biting well as the ...

 Sweetwater fishing has been a mix of hot and cold fishing. Some lakes and ponds have started to turn over and are taking on a more fall mode. Water temps in the rivers and streams have dropped down into the low 60s which is putting the smallmouth on the feed ...
