DARKTOBER

DARKTOBER
Blackfish season kicked-off in high gear this week, here is a solid 9.80-pounder landed by Tom Fucini.
 Bass fishing seems to be waking up again in at least a few places along Long Island Sound. The area surrounding the Housatonic River has been picking up and even produced a 52-pounder for a surfcaster slinging a pencil popper on Columbus Day morning. The big slug of bass that was punishing the bunker in the mouth of the Connecticut River has moved out with the bait, but the area east of the River has come to life with decent bass. If you love hunting big bass on a dark night, this is your week. The local albie crop seems very content to stick around and gorge on the abundant baitfish. There wasn’t a single tackle shop I called that didn’t have some albie news to pass on. I’m no false albacore expert, but this seems to have been an exceptional year so far. Water temps are still pretty high so we have a wide array of fish to chase—if you’re a porgy person, the bite is still red hot and these fall fish are big. You have no excuse, fish now—you’ll be holiday shopping before you know it.
