Fisherman's World

November 13, 2017:
Max at Fisherman's World in Norwalk said that the surf bite has been picking up locally. Places like Sherwood Island and Compo Beach have been very good, especially at dawn—blitzes have been common. Most of the fish are 8- to 12-pound cookie cutters, but there are some keepers in there and a few bigger fish even as heavy as 20 pounds. The mouth of the Housy has been good for eelers after dark as well. Even Norwalk Harbor has been very good for those throwing small plugs, shads and bucktails. Action has been good.

    Max from Fisherman's World in Norwalk said that the Fall Run is on in the western Sound. Anywhere between Bridgeport and Stamford seems to be a good bet for shore anglers to score albies, bass and blues. The most consistent shore albie spot has been the Southport Jetties, but they are also inside Greenwich Harbor so that's worth looking at as well. Bass blitzes have been common off Westport, the fish are on peanuts and the frenzies can erupt at any time of day. Most of the fish are in the 18- to 28-inch class but a few fish up to 40 inches have been reported; blues may mix in as well. If you can find a pod of adult bunker you might find blues to 16 pounds on them with a few big bass into the 30-pound class down below. Things are looking good.

    Jeremy from Fisherman's World in Norwalk said that a major push of peanut bunker showed up at the mouths of the local rivers and harbors. This has put a lot of bass up to about 20 pounds in these same areas. Topwater fishing from shore by day has been productive this week. Eelers have been scoring some decent fish after dark as well. A decent charge of albies has taken up residence in Norwalk Harbor and several shore guys have hooked-up there this week.

    Jeremy over at Fisherman's World told me they were hearing some better shore reports this week from guys chunking and eeling the mouths of the local rivers and harbors. These guys have been catching some nice bass up into the low 40-inch class. The best times have been dusk and throughout the night. Bluefish have been pretty scarce inshore, and the ones that have been caught in tight have been small. Shore guys might get a shot at albies locally right now as well.

    As per usual, we start things off with Jeremy from Fisherman's World in Norwalk he told me that shore action has been kind of slow again this week. There have been shots of school bass popping up around Sherwood Island and inside the harbor. Porgy action remains strong. The few shore blackfish reports he had heard told of a decent bite dominated by shorts.
