Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
I took a very rare (for me) vacation last week with the family. We spent a few days up in Catskill, NY with some friends where we visited Howe Caverns, swam at a large mountain lake and spent some time cleaning up the overgrown cat tails which have been doing ...

Here we are (somehow) already entering the final week of July. This means that for those of you who consider the open-water season as running from May through November as I do, we’re nearly half-way through the 2020 fishing season! If you’re looking to improve on your success as seen ...

THIS & THAT

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
Here is a look at what the Field Editors had to say this week about the local bite.

CONNECTICUT – Dave Anderson

SEA BASS & MORE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
I didn’t fish the surf a single time this week, a combination of the extremely poor state of the fishing and some different opportunities that popped up. Early in the week I took my first night time trout hunt and got into some hefty browns to 20 inches on mouse ...

BIG OL’ BASS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
This week saw a good variety of action across Southern New England. Overall there is no single best bet with each area having its shining light. Sea bass season opens this Wednesday, June 24 in Rhode Island and New York opens the day prior, both of which are much-welcomed dates ...

BASS TO BLUEFIN HOT!

Location: New England
CONNECTICUT – DAVE ANDERSON
I’ve been writing this report for over a decade now and one of the things that always fascinates me is the movement of cow stripers exiting the Hudson. I can remember years when the bulk of the action was over by June 1, but this year ...

RECORD RHODY CARP!

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
This week’s log is a bit different than normal in that it covers a single catch, but it’s one that is well-deserving of a spot on its own. In recent years, interest in carp fishing has exploded in Southern New England. Back when I was in high school and still ...

JUNE ALREADY?!?!

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
I’ll be the first to admit it: it simply doesn’t feel like June yet. After a very mild winter, and predictions/hopes of an early spring season, thigs went to hell in a handbasket between a cold spring and COVID-19 bologna. That said, we are now in the 6th month and ...
