    Surf fishing is showing signs of the season right now as small bass can be had along the beaches and tidal rivers right now says Joe at Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook. Hickory shad are around in good numbers, and those who now how and where to get white perch have been getting some bruisers.

    I was in grabbing some eels for the coming new moon and spoke to Joe at Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook about the local surf scene. There are small bass to be had along the Rhody beaches, but keepers are tough to come by there. Locally you can still find a lot of small bait in the surf with mixed results being found. One day there are loads of schoolies on them, then they're gone the next and back the day after that. Juvenile herring have been seen by toggers outside the river which usually charges up some good bites as they mix with peanuts and silversides already in residence. A few isolated cows were landed in the deep of the night last week, so don't hang it up just yet.

    According to Joe at Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook, the ,lower Connecticut River and surrounding shoreline have been seeing blitzes of small bass with some harbor blues mixing-in at times. There are peanuts and what appear to be anchovies in tight, and this is holding the small bass close as it has been doing most of the latter part of the summer. A few isolated big bass were also caught in the surf, but the specifics kept quiet for now.

    I swung by Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook this week to grab a few things for the surf and spoke to both Joe and Q for a while about the local surf fishing. In general neither heard much in the line of larger striped bass, but schoolies are pretty common from the Rhode Island beaches to the Connecticut River. Small blues are prevalent in that stretch, too, but albies remain a ghost both from shore and by boat inside the Sound. Last up we talked blue crabs, and Q noted the Oyster River as your best bet with most other places only giving up a few here and there.
