THE HOURGLASS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 When we reach this point in the season, I start to look at the migration—both literally and metaphorically—as an hourglass. In the literal sense, there is the urgency brought on by the sand running low on the top side of the funnel. Metaphorically speaking the fishery heavily favors the southern ...

MAN UP!

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 Surfcasters up and down the coast have been showing a growing concern about the health of the striper stocks, and I am right there with all of you. I have been surf fishing for more than 20 years, and in the time between 2002 and this year, I have seen ...

DON’T BE FOOLED

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 I’ve been battling a nasty cold all week, complete with a 103 fever and rampant insomnia so I haven’t gotten out at all since last Saturday night. With that said there are still plenty of fish on the move no matter where you live. There are still teen bass up ...

OWENSTRONG UPDATE

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 The OwenStrong Surfcasting Tournament concluded on Saturday morning and the event that followed was a rousing success. Surfcasters from New Jersey to Massachusetts came together at the Clinton Town Hall in Clinton, CT for a day of food, seminars and raffles. I haven’t heard the final tally yet, but I ...

A “C” STUDENT

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 I talk to a lot of guys about the bass bite and bass in general, and the consensus seems to be—with few exceptions—that this fall is not performing up to it’s potential—ranking a solid C-minus. Honestly, I’d give it a D. I think a lot of people are trying to ...

OWENSTRONG UPDATE

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
We saw some really nice fish come in from the general vicinity of South County and Eastern Long Island Sound. Brian DiMento was at it again logging two more impressive fish and dethroning Toby Lapinski by one inch! At virtually the same time, Justin Corso swooped in and tied Toby ...

BYE, BYE SEPTEMBER

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
 We got the short end of the stick with regard to September. Twin hurricanes stole pretty much the entire new moon period away from surfcasters along the entire East Coast. South County and eastern Connecticut won the lottery and had a body of fish that stayed in tight on abundant ...

LOVE THAT DIRTY WATER

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
It’s funny how the effects of dirty water are felt differently in different locations even though we’re all fishing for the same fish! The Canal shut right down after a quick flare-up before Jose blew angrily past. My local haunts were rendered fishless after the storm. But then you move ...

ALBIE FEVAH, KID…

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
“Wow,” is all can say. I have never cared enough to even keep a tin in the bag when albies were around—mostly because I fish almost exclusively after dark. This year, I decided to give it a try and I caught one and busted another one off—I think my drag ...

GOODNIGHT MOON

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: New England Surf
This week the moon is getting smaller every night and rising later. This is a week to fish hard. That dark period after sunset is a godsend for surfcasters that can’t stay out into the wee hours. This is a week that we can’t waste. Sure this week happens every ...
