COOL RUNNINGS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
It’s been a bit of wild week with at least one day of cool weather, hot weather, windy weather, big seas… we’ve had it all. As the general feeling in the air has become more and more ‘fall-like’, the fishing has mirrored it. Schoolie bass have come to life all ...

Things have been stirred up with hurricane Florence making land fall to our south this week. For Northeast anglers there is a possibility that this storm may improve offshore fishing.

Location: Rhode Island
Fall may not officially start until later this week, but based on the fishing reports the “fall run” has begun. It’s often the bait that makes or breaks fall fishing in Rhode Island, and while making calls for this past week’s reports everyone was impressed with just how much bait ...

FINAL FLUKING

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: Northern NJ & Hudson River
Needless to say it was not a good week of fishing along the northern coast thanks to the effects of a hurricane that was so big it hit the coast in the Carolinas and still affected us all the way up the coast. As one person I spoke to put ...

FOCUS ON BASS

Posted By Tom Melton
Location: Long Island Freshwater
For this week, I would hit the lakes in search of bass. The cooler weather will certainly have them in the biting mood. Spinnerbaits, crankbaits and swimbaits will all come back into play. For heavier cover, try a larger jig in perch or bluegill colors. For trout, the Conny and ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
As reported by all of our contacts this week, striped bass and blue fish have been solid in the breachways and outflows of South County. While many surfcasters make a B-Line for the tip of the rocks to drift plugs towards the horizon on a dropping tide, time and time ...

MIXED BAG TIME

Posted By Geoffrey Lawrence
Location: West End South Long Island
As of Sunday, the offshore storms that hit the Carolinas didn’t have the devastating effect on our waters that many had expected. Party boats and even some private boaters were able to take a shot at fluke, bass, sea bass, porgies and blues. The storm push didn’t push out the ...

MIXED OFFSHORE ACTION

Posted By Greg Metcalf
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
From groundfish to pelagics, the offshore bite in the Gulf of Main has been very good. Haddock fishing is now closed, but there are plenty of pollock, baseball-bat-sized whiting, cusk and redfish for bottom fishermen. There are some big bluefin in Cape Cod Bay and Western Jeffrey's Ledge with live ...

MONTAUK CLASSIC

Posted By Fred Golofaro
Location: Long Island Surf
Another dose of east winds this past week, and the heave from Hurricane Florence limited beach access some days and shut down fishing along the oceanfront for a time as well. By Sunday, some reports blues and small bass made their way back to South shore and East End tackle ...
