    Capt. Bruce on The Otter said, "There have been lots of schoolie bass around this week which was great for the light tackle and fly rod guys on the Otter this week. Also in the mix were good numbers of 2-pound bluefish. They limited out on bass on two trips this week with fish to 45 inches. An 18-inch flounder was landed on a 13-inch Otter Eel intended for bass Saturday night, a surprising catch! The moon tides really seemed to kick the bite into gear, call now to get in on the action!"

    Capt. Bruce on The Otter said, "Numbers of larger bass have finally showed up in local waters. Most trips this week had limits of fish between 30 and 46 inches; only two trips were slow. Still no bluefish—but they should arrive soon, to the dismay of some and the pleasure of others. Come join the fun on the Otter, call 860-235-6095."

    Capt. Bruce on The Otter said, "Most of our bass trips this week were slow. We didn't catch a single bass over 42 inches; in fact we even had one trip with a 24-inch skunk, a very rare catch on the Otter. Small bait is seemingly everywhere, but large baits are very hard to find on the reefs. Fly-rodders can do well around Gull Island right now where bass are gorging on small bait. We're just waiting for the big fish to move in and they should move in soon. Give us a call to book your trip on the Otter; 860-235-6095."

    Capt. Bruce on The Otter said, "Bass fishing is still a bit of a challenge on the eastern Sound reefs, at least for the larger ones. So far we haven't caught any larger than 45 inches, but there have been good numbers of 42-inchers this year, which is still a solid fish. The big schools of sand eels we usually see at this time are a little behind schedule, but they will show soon, so keep your chins up bass guys! It's only just starting and Long Island Sound really starts to come to life in the coming weeks, take that as your cue to book a trip or plan one on your own boat. The time is near." Give Capt. Bruce a call if you want to get out with one of Long Island Sound's best big bass hunters.
