Reader Gallery: A Solid Assortment

We’ve got a little of everything in this one, some pics from November and even October, mixed together with some very recent catches. The more recent pics show some pollock taken in the Gulf of Maine last month and some nice stripers caught in various locations, mostly in Connecticut. The older photos are some of the last submissions from 2023’s amazing fall blackfish season and even a first-ever striper that could make anyone smile. If you would like to have your photos featured here, please send them to, provide the details of the catch and use the word ‘gallery’ in the subject line.

Zach Mendes made an early-January trip aboard Eastman’s Fishing Fleet running out of Seabrook, NH; they put a serious hurting on the pollock and had a ball doing it!

Shayleigh Fay, and her grandpa Jeffery Allen, with Shayleigh’s first-ever ‘self-caught’ striper. She didn’t want to hold it, but the smile says it all!

Here’s another great shot from Fernando Lage, this over-slot striper was caught and released in the Housatonic River in late-December.
