BLACKFISH BEST BET

Posted By Bob Danielson, October 23, 2017
BLACKFISH BEST BET
Blackfish numbers remain good and there was a noticeable improvement in the number of keeper tog caught this week.
 The blackfishing has been heating up with the cooler water temps this past week. The keeper to short ratio has been getting better all along the North Shore. There have been plenty of fish weighed in to about 6 pounds but some bigger fish have been rumored to have come from the Connecticut side of the Sound. I have been hearing that the deeper water has been holding more keepers than the shallow water is. It looks like the keepers that were on the shallow spots were cleaned off quickly. There are still plenty of porgies around if you’re still interested in them. They have been so thick that they’ve been hitting crab baits meant for tog. Sea bass have also been showing up pretty well in the reports this week. Fish over 4 pounds have been weighed in and plenty of smaller keepers have been finding their way into the local tackle shops. Bass fishing seems to be warming up although there hasn’t been any really big fish taken. Most of the fish are schoolies with some fish going up to 15 pounds or so. The blues have been very localized with the waters around Huntington holding most of the bigger blues.
