BETTER BOTTOM BOUNCING

From fluke to sea bass, and haddock to porgies, bottom fishing remains the best and most consistent game in town right now. The big Fluke Til Ya Puke tournament was this past weekend, and top honors went to Bill Robinson for his 10.2-pounder. Runner-up was Nino Aversa with a 9.-74-pounder, and a close third was secured by Eric Alleyne's 9.38-pound fluke. There have been some double-digit fluke landed off Nantucket with several 12’s, 13’s and even a 14-plus landed up that way in the last week. Black sea bass season is closed in Rhode Island until June 24, but with the season open in Massachusetts and Connecticut, some hefty humpheads are being landed in Buzzards Bay as well as Long Island Sound. Mixed-in with those big biscuits in the Sound have been some downright massive porgies including a new pending State Record for Connecticut as the guys from J&B Tackle/Dot-E-Dee Sportfishing put one of their clients onto a massive 5.3-pound fish this weekend! Up north both the winter flounder bite around Boston and the haddock bite on Stellwagen remain very good, too.
