A HOLDING PATTERN?

A HOLDING PATTERN?
Some better stripers are filling in across the state lately like this one landed recently by Eddie Aledia.

While the fishing has remained very good this week across most of the state, things haven’t changed much. It just seems like we have to wait just a little bit longer for things to really catch fire. The Housy remains the top spot for stripers, especially if you want to bust 20 pounds. The western Sound big fish run has not yet begun; again, we just have to wait. Weakfish have started to show at several bars west of the Connecticut River. I think when fluke opens we’ll see a lot more boats out on the Sound and, in turn, we’ll hear a lot more about all of the fisheries we hold near and dear. It’s just a week of slow transition, and with some much warmer weather on the near horizon, I think the coast is due to bust wide open.

With fluke season opening on Wednesday, I am a big advocate of being out there first. Early returns on accidental catches of fluke have been very encouraging; I’d head for Peconic Bay or west to the area between Milford and Norwalk and drop a jig. Another tip I’ve picked up is looking for schools of squid; the fluke always seem to be set up below.
We just have to wait a little bit longer.

Lunch Break Fisherman - 127 days ago

With a few hot days in a row, large mouth bass fishing has heated up, target small lakes and ponds in your local area. Fishing shallow weeds and lily pads with rubber worms is a no fail. Remember to have strong line though, you'll need it if your going to pull a hog out of that vegetation. Tandem chartreuse spinner baits are also great this time of year too, just buzz them along the weed line and be ready for heavy hitters to crash your lure. Tight Lines, The Lunch Break Fisherman
