BOTTOM FISH BONANZA!

BOTTOM FISH BONANZA!
Bottom fishing for the likes of black sea bass, scup and fluke is about as good as it gets across Long Island Sound right now! Image courtesy of Lucky Hook Charters.
This week the bottom fishing really seems to be coming to life. Sea bass action has been really good pretty much everywhere, with some emphasis on Misquamicut, Black Point and Montauk. Flukers are finding good bites all over the map, the tough part is waiting out the shorts, but there was a boatload of 7- to 9-pounders in the reports this week, so clearly it’s a good idea to wait them out. And porgies? Forget about it! They are on fire just about everywhere, from the Thames River to Fishers, from Six Mile Reef to Charles Island and everywhere in between. I don’t remember a year where more big porgies were reported from shore—it just seems like a great year for the lowly scup. For the striper guys, the Race and Sluice are finally starting to show some consistent results, still mostly smaller fish but a few good ones up into the 40-pound class have been reported. It really feels like the summer kickoff this week, get out there!
