With the fall blackfish season opening this Wednesday, October 10 in Connecticut, all eyes are on rocky structure and our crabby friends. (Photo courtesy of Fishin Factory 3)
Well, we didn’t see a major invasion of big bass, but we did see many more big ones than last week, so I’m calling that a modest victory, plus we still have the downside of the dark moon, which has been better to me historically, especially in the Fall. I need to speak frankly with you all for a second here; deep breath… the next new moon happens IN NOVEMBER… need I say more? Don’t dilly dally! Albies are still in full swing from Norwalk to Watch Hill and clear to Martha’s Vineyard, so if you’re a sufferer of the disease, stay on it, barring a huge cold spell or (gulp) hurricane, this might be another year where we see November albies. Wednesday is the day to start blackfishing, gear up and go hard. Good luck.

I agree. Non stop action in Groton area. No slobs but some descent fish at the bottom of the tide. Double keepers more than once.

Awesome black fishing opening day!! I think most anglers will agree this was the BEST opening day in several years. Plenty of shorties to keep you on your toes , Some nice 17-18 inchers and a nice splattering of Fat Slobs to keep your blood pressure up. No time for sandwiches or breaks, the fish bit non stop the whole opening day
