BLUEFISH TAKING HOLD

Posted By Bob Danielson, September 11, 2017
BLUEFISH TAKING HOLD
Porgies remain a sure bet all over the Sound, but bluefish are making a strong bid for attention.
Let’s start out by all taking a quick second to say a prayer for all those folks in Houston and Florida who have gotten hammered by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. I am sure they could use every good thought that they can get at this point.
The fishing seems to be in high gear this week. The porgy fishing is off the hook according to everyone. There are more and more porgies coming over the rails than ever before. There has been a large amount of fish over two pounds as well as some larger specimens that have been landed this past week. The weather has been the only thing slowing the action down. The hard winds we saw last week kept some folks to the inshore grounds but they managed to land quite a few fish regardless. The sea bass have been more than cooperative this week too. I have heard about plenty of fish over three pounds getting landed to make quite a few excellent dinners. They are definitely my favorite fish for the table. Bluefish have been making more regular appearances this week with some really big fish getting landed. We have heard at least one report of a bluefish over 20 pounds although that was unsubstantiated. We have had reports of other blues up to 19 pounds landed that were confirmed. Stripers are coming back into the reports this week with quite a few fish into the 20 pound range. Snappers are still around and getting bigger every day. It seems to me that the fall run is kicking off in the right direction. All we need now is to avoid any tropical storms and we’ll be good to go.
