MAY MADNESS

MAY MADNESS
Hunter and his dad, Joe, took a little road trip and got in on the excellent spring tog bite in Connecticut before the season closed on the last day of April.
While the past few weeks have been ‘pretty good’ on the fishing front, this week’s reports showed dramatic improvement. In Connecticut - where the spring tog season closed out on April 30 - it was expectedly good as it always is as the door shuts closed. This was one of the best spring seasons in quite a few years even with the limited pressure seen based on COVID-19 concerns. As the season closes in one state, and the fishing is on the upswing, Rhode Island toggers started doing much better this week; that bite should only get better by the day. The shallow rockpiles off South County as well as up inside the bay are already giving up some decent fish. Striper action, too, stepped up its game this week with bass to almost 40 pounds logged in the Western Sound and schoolies seen in the surf all the way to the MA/NH border! Looking ahead, fluke season starts opening up as we hit the 5th month with Rhode Island on May 1, and in Connecticut and New York on May 4. Massachusetts will join in on the flatfish fun later in the month on May 23.
