    There are still small bass and blues along the local beaches according to Fisherman's World in Norwalk. If you want a bigger bass you can head to the Housy, but the fish have been topping off around 20 pounds or so in there. We saw a little bit of a push of bigger fish not too long ago into the river, but the "big push" either hasn't happened yet or snuck in without notice.

    Despite the weather this week, Max at Fisherman's World in Norwalk still had some positive news to pass along. Bluefish in the 2- to maybe 4-pound class can still be had along the shoreline as the peanut bunker weathered the storm. You can also find good numbers of small bass in pretty much any outflow, creek, river, harbor, etc. as they too are feeding on that small bait. Just before the storm there were some bigger bass landed at the mouth of the Housy after dark which is good news as we have been waiting for that push to come into the river for a few weeks. Bottom fishing is mixed with porgies finally starting to slow down after one of the best seasons in recent memory, but in their place shore anglers have been getting keeper blackfish at spots like Sherwood Island and the big jetty at Compo Beach. Basically you just need a good rockpile and some crabs and you're likely to find some tog, but don't wait too long as they're not going to stay shallow for long.

    Max at Fisherman's World in Norwalk reports that it was much of the same this week, but that's a good thing as local fishing has been good from shore. Sure the winds this week made for difficult conditions at times, but those with knowledge of secluded, protected spots scored well on bass to about 30 inches. There have been blues around in the surf as well with fish from 2 to maybe 6 or 7 pounds being caught.

    The great porgy bite is still going strong, and the shore striper bite picked up more steam this week according to Rich over at Fisherman's World in Norwalk. Striper action is still more about numbers than size, but with as many fish as they have locally there are enough "keepers" to keep people happy. The primary bait remains peanut bunker, so matching that size profile has been key with 4- to 5-inch swimmers, poppers and jigs getting the most bites. The larger Rat-L-Trap has been really good with all the peanuts in the surf. Anglers fishing chunks around the schools of peanuts have been doing ok, but it seems like plugging is producing better. Bluefish have been loaded up just a bit offshore around the islands, and this is translating to an ok surf bite but not as good as the boaters. Chunks of mackerel have been a best bet, however. Albies remain present by boat, but shore-bound anglers are struggling to connect.
