New England - South Shore Massachusetts to Maine Fishing Reports

The Fisherman Magazine Weekend Video Forecast 5/6/2021 - New England

In this week’s Web Fishing Forecast, New England editor Dave Anderson has news about bluefish arriving in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Their arrival seems to have coincided with an influx of squid that will, almost certainly, fire up the striper action in all three states this week. The best striper fishing is still in western Connecticut if you’re looking for size—but great catches can be made in Narragansett Bay and the estuaries of Cape Cod. Fluking has been tough this week, weather has been a factor, the best action for flatties is over on the NY side of Long Island Sound. Blackfish action is on the rise in Rhody and Massachusetts, look for some really nice togs to show up this week in both states, don’t forget that CT’s tog season is closed right now.
