FALL BASSIN’

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: Long Island Freshwater
For this week, the cooling temperatures and cold rains we had should see bass get a lot more active during the day. If you want trout, the Conny, Caleb Smith and Connecticut/Massachusetts areas have all been rock solid. Carp are prowling almost any of the local ponds, and make for ...

The fall run is an exciting time of the fishing season. It can mean lights-out action and phenomenal opportunities to make some great memories. September is a great month on both the inshore and offshore grounds, so try to find some time and cash in on the great saltwater resources ...

GET’CHER MOTOR RUNNIN’

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
I’m declaring this the end of the lull. The reports don’t really show it, but I know from experience that things tend to kick into gear after that first taste of fall weather, and as I write this, we’ve gone through a 20-degree temperature swing and a second system is ...

Location: New England Freshwater

PRE-STORM SUCCESS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
Fall storms are a blessing and a curse to surfcasters in New England. They have the potential to produce some of the best action of the season, but at the same time if they hit just right then they can shut things down faster than you can say, “The blitz ...

SEPTEMBER DOORMATS

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: West End South Long Island
Fluking was fair to good depending on the area and it remains to be seen what affects the heavy weather will have on the flatties. Ambrose Channel is in the beginning stages of the fall run and fish to 10-pounds were taken. The Cholera, Hempstead Reef and the McAllister Grounds ...
