COLD SNAP

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Things are about to get decidedly fall-like here in New England. I’m sure you’ve already felt it, maybe you’ve put the comforter back on the bed or lit the woodstove for the first time since May, but it’s coming. We’ve had a very summerlike fall so far and this has ...

SLOW DRIP & TOG

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Well, we didn’t see a major invasion of big bass, but we did see many more big ones than last week, so I’m calling that a modest victory, plus we still have the downside of the dark moon, which has been better to me historically, especially in the Fall. I ...

DON’T SLEEP

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
This is a funny time of year, and that’s not a play on the ‘funny fish’ fever that’s overtaken the land. It’s funny because it often still feels like summer and can lull you to sleep in a sense. Some people don’t get ‘up’ for the fall run until it ...

AND… IT’S FALL

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
It feels like fall, the weather is unpredictable like fall, I made pot roast the other night, the fish are eating like it’s fall so… it’s fall. Albies are in full swing in the eastern Sound and have made their presence known as far west as Norwalk. I don’t think ...

COOL RUNNINGS

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
It’s been a bit of wild week with at least one day of cool weather, hot weather, windy weather, big seas… we’ve had it all. As the general feeling in the air has become more and more ‘fall-like’, the fishing has mirrored it. Schoolie bass have come to life all ...

GET’CHER MOTOR RUNNIN’

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
I’m declaring this the end of the lull. The reports don’t really show it, but I know from experience that things tend to kick into gear after that first taste of fall weather, and as I write this, we’ve gone through a 20-degree temperature swing and a second system is ...

THE LULL?

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
I think I have been writing this report for a decade. Scary. But one of the patterns that has stood out over that decade is that there always seems to be a lull at the very end of the summer. It’s almost like the fish take a collective deep breath ...

BEGGING FOR BONES

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
It’s shaping up to be a good season for bonito, but it seems like they are staying over the line in Rhode Island so far. The table seems to be well set with lots of small bait in place between Niantic and Weekapaug, it’s really just a matter of time. ...

BIGGER BLUES ARRIVE

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
After a serious bluefish drought we are finally starting to hear about a few good fish coming from places like Six Mile, Valiant, The Gut and the mouth of the CT River. The numbers are nowhere near what we have seen in years past, but they are at least showing ...

AUGUSTUS FLUKE

Posted By Dave Anderson
Location: Connecticut
Fluking has really picked up speed this week with the best action centered around Niantic Bay. The numbers of 8- to 12-pound fluke reported this week outnumber the sum total from the reports of the whole rest of the summer! Snapper blues seem to be playing a role in the ...
