Rivers End Bait & Tackle

October 15, 2018:
Joe at Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook said it was another week of the same for local surfcasters: lots of time put in with little to show for it. There are some small bass in the surf around the river, but pulling anything over 30 inches is a chore. Bait seems to be the main issue as there just isn't much of anything to hold the fish in tight; no adult bunker, no peanuts, some silverside and that's about it.



Previous Reports

    Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook reports that some bass moved into the lower river this week with fish to about 20 pounds landed from shore. There have been schools of bunker popping in and out of the river mouth, fueling the bite. Over in Rhode Island, it's all about albies by day and bass at night with the breachways being your best bet for both species, although Watch Hill has been good for albies, too.
