June 17, 2019:
Karen over at AW Marina said striper action improved this week; schoolies have been very active in the river, and some better fish have been taken off the local reefs out front. Brian Flanagan had the best weigh-in of the week with his 34-pounder taken from undisclosed, but definitely local, waters. Fluking has been better closer to home this week; Block was dogged out, but Vixens and Saras have been putting out some fish. Alexa Pesarik (age 9) bagged a nice 5.15-pounder on Saturday and was very proud to weigh it in at the shop. Porgies have finally moved into the Thames; it's still just a trickle, but they should fill in quickly now.

    Karen over at AW Marina said the fishing overall is heating up with the weather. Bass action has been good with lots of schoolies and small keepers mixing together, but every once in a while, a big one shows up on the scene. Don Coher's 42-pounder caught this week is a good example of that. Fluking is still best at Block Island, locally the bite is picking up but it's still mostly shorts. Montauk has slowed down a tick; Casey Mrachel was there jigging for fluke and was surprised with a 16-pound bluefish! Porgy action is picking up on the local reefs now with sea bass just starting to crash the party. If you want to catch blues, try Millstone.

    Karen over at AW Marina said there have been some fluke filtering in along the backside of Fishers this week. Keeper ratios are tilting steeply in the wrong direction but a few guys said that the tail ends of the tide have been producing some bigger fish. Jeff Pollard said he battled shorts all day until the tide slowed way down then he took three keepers including a really nice 9.15-pounder. The boats returning from Montauk have told a similar tale. Keeper stripers have been reported from Fort Trumbull, Inner Bartletts has also been producing some decent bass. There are lots of schoolie bass around too. Schools of bunker have been spotted around the mouth of the Thames with bluefish in pursuit. More blues are being taken at Millstone and inside Niantic Bay. Porgies are just starting to show locally. The deep waters off Black Point have given up some sea bass. Squid are in at Sarahs Ledge and a few other local spots. We've also seen the first signs of blue crabs for the year. GO BRUINS!

    Karen over at AW Marina said the schoolie action continues to light up the Thames, keepers have been hard to come by locally though. Porgies have moved up into the river now too and catches have been good from Mystic and throughout the lower river. Fluking has been decent, but you have to weed through lots of shorts to find a keeper. There are some big ones out there though, like the 10.8-pounder than Kathy Lewis weighed-in this week! Bunker have been reported in good numbers throughout the Thames and the shop has freshies for anyone looking to chunk.

    Karen over at AW Marina said there were lots of boats going in this week and it was starting to look more like fishing season as the slips filled with boats and the shop was buzzing with anticipation. She said the 'mini stripers' were biting well in the Thames. Porgies have not yet gotten into the river but there were reports from the Mystic area. Fluking continues to improve, New York is still the place to be with Montauk producing the best results right now. Jeff headed across one day this week and took home three nice ones; a 19-incher, a 22-incher and a 24, he had to battle through lots of shorts, doggies and sea robins to get them. Speaking of sea robins, Casey Mrachek weighed in a 2.65-pounder for the Dreamboat competition this week! David Eng may have busted the CT state record for brown bullhead with his 7.45-pounder—the shop has a certified scale so all weigh-ins there are official. And don't forget to sign up of their Rootin' Tootin' Flukin' Shootout, it's $10 to enter with the winner netting $500 in cash, there will be weekly prizes all season long, don't miss out!
