FEELING LIKE FALL

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
 Well we finally got a taste of some actual fall weather this past week as temperatures dipped down below 30 degrees at night a couple of times. While I can’t say I’m completely happy with the change, it was enough to drop the water temperatures a few degrees which was ...

HADDOCK’S BACK ON

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
 With haddock season reopening in the Gulf of Maine, another fall favorite is back on the table for anglers north of the Cape. Early reports have been quite good for the boats that were able to sail this week as Mother Nature didn’t always play nice. There are still small ...

HIRE A GUIDE

Posted By Rod Teehan
Location: New England Freshwater
 For issues 35 and 36 I wrote a story about my first-ever Salmon River steelhead. In that piece I mentioned a guide named Frank Heeland. That got me thinking about guides, specifically those like Frank who specialize in trout and salmon fishing in Lake Ontario tributaries such as the Salmon ...

OPTIONS A PLENTY

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
 Whether you prefer freshwater or salt, the surf of offshore, there is a lot to do this week around the Cape. Freshwater fishing is excellent right now for trout as they prefer the cooling waters. Some big browns are being landed on the Cape to go along with the rainbows ...

Posted By J. B. Kasper
Location: New Jersey Freshwater
 It was a tale of hot and cold, and I do mean cold, fishing for sweetwater fishermen this past week. Just about everyone I spoke with said the week started off with good bass and crappie action through out our reporting area. The 70-degree air temperatures and mid 60-degree water ...

THE HEAT IS ON!

Posted By Nick Honachefsky
Location: New Jersey Surf
 Here we go! Even though the northern part of the state has been on surf bass for a little while, the central and southern shores have now seen a pretty solid push of fish into their areas. From shorts to sows, bass have been hitting bunker chunks, snagged bunker, plugs, ...

THE HOURGLASS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 When we reach this point in the season, I start to look at the migration—both literally and metaphorically—as an hourglass. In the literal sense, there is the urgency brought on by the sand running low on the top side of the funnel. Metaphorically speaking the fishery heavily favors the southern ...

WAITIN’ ON STRIPERS

Posted By Bob Misak
Location: Southern New Jersey
 The past week in South Jersey we saw an increased bass bite as the recent cold snap got those stripers charged up a bit, and anglers chunking the beaches of Brigantine and drifting the back bays with live bait did quite well. Bass to 30 pounds and over are now ...

WINDING DOWN?

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
 This cold snap seems to have many anglers worrying about the end. But the blackfishing has been great, pretty much statewide. In fact, this was the best week for size for the entire fall with several 8- to 11-pounders taken this week. Striper action has been tough in the eastern ...
