    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 said a hot fluke bite has fired up locally. Guys fishing Hatchetts, Black Point and the mouth of the Thames have been doing well in deep water—75 to 125 feet. These fish have likely been brought in by the snapper blues that have been showing up in good numbers this week. Limits have been common in these areas with fish to 8 pounds reported. Sea bass action has been picking up in these same areas as well. Bluefish are still a mystery, unless you fish the Millstone discharge. One kayaker caught a small blue there and paddled it out to deeper water where he deployed it wearing a larger hook and promptly landed a 48-inch striper! Bunker have been showing up in increased numbers around the mouth of the CT River this week and guys are starting to catching some bigger bass on the adjacent beaches, reefs and rock piles. Albie fever is already starting too, people are stocking up in anticipation of that first report.

    Over at Fishin' Factory 3 weather had kept a lot of guys tied to the dock but those that braved the waves were rewarded with some excellent porgy action. Striper reports are about the best they've been all year with the eel guys scoring well at Block, Montauk and in local waters. Sea bass action seems to still be very good for the guys heading east of the river. Blues are scarce unless you head up into Millstone where a few harbor blues can usually be caught.

    Over at Fishin' Factory 3 the sea bass bite was still going strong east and west of the river. Anyone looking for porgies should be able to find them just about anywhere there's a rock in more than 4 feet of water. The striper bite keeps getting a little bit better every day; Bartletts has been seeing more fish lately, so have a few of the other local reefs. Guys coming back from Montauk have also been doing well. Blue crabbing in the river is finally coming to life, it's not 'lights out' right now, but guys are finding enough keepers to put a meal together.

    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 said bass fishing is looking good around the mouth of the river. The flats have been good for topwater bass, mostly in the 28- to 35-inch range. Some better fish are hanging just outside as well. Block Island is on fire for stripers, Andrew weighed-in three 50-pounders from the ledge this week. Fluking is decent, the fish are shallow and finding bait is the key to finding a limit. Sarahs Ledge, Two Tree and the humps outside the Thames have been pretty good. The sea bass action southwest of Southwest Reef is still red hot; limits have been easy to come by—bait has been working great but butterfly jigs have been slaying. Scup fishing is red hot on every rock pile in the Sound.
