    Over at Rivers End the recent deep-freeze has local anglers thinking ice fishing. They got a good shipment of shiners and spikes and there is a lot of nearby fishable ice. Holdover striper action took a heavy hit as most of the tidals are locked-up with ice.

    Over at Rivers End the Housy was the main focus for most of their diehard customers. Nighttime is the best bet if you want a chance at a better fish. It's been a cold winter so far so the bite may not last like it has during some of the warmer winters. Best advice is to go early in the month and stay with the bite until it tapers off (if it does.) The tributaries on the CT River can also be a good bet for a variety of species from pike to pickerel to panfish to stripers. If it stays cold, the coves will see a lot of ice fishermen.

    Over at Rivers End the guys have been selling gift cards like crazy as local shoppers gear up for the holiday. If you can't get to the shop in person, feel free to give them a call, pay over the phone and they can mail a card out for you. There are schoolies still feeding locally both our front as well as up all the tidal rivers big and small. The Housy is getting the lion's share of attention, but it is not the only game in town! The ice fishing gear is hitting the shelves this week, and they plan on having shiners available all winter long to meet your hard-water fishing needs. The shop remains open 7-days per week and will have the winter seminar schedule out soon so stay tuned.

    Joe at Rivers End said that there are still plenty of small to medium striped bass locally. A boat customer landed 21 bass out on Long Sand Shoal over the weekend into the 30-inch class. There are also large numbers of small schoolies along the shoreline and up most all the local tidal rivers for the surf guys. Blackfishing remains open until December 6, and the bite has been best in 50 to 60 feet of water with some impressive fish still being caught. Lastly, the shop is now on winter hours as follows: Mon - Fri: 9:00 to 6:00, Saturday: 9:00 to 5:00, Sunday: 9:00 to 4:00.
