The Fisherman Magazine Weekend Video Forecast 4/29/2021 – New England
New England Editor Dave Anderson details the fishing taking place right now all over New England. Striper fishing is really starting to come alive all across southern New England, schoolie bass have made it as far as the ‘elbow’ of the Cape, but they have not turned the corner yet. There are bass all around the Vineyard, throughout Buzzards Bay and along the shores of Rhode Island too—most of these fish are schoolies, but some larger holdovers can be found at the herring runs. In Connecticut things get more interesting, there are keeper bass in the CT River and Housatonic and bass pushing close to 30 pounds are entering the western Sound from the Hudson River. Blackfishing is set to bust open in Rhode Island—Block is already hot—and those fishing inside Narragansett Bay are doing well too. Unfortunately, the Connecticut tog season closes April 30th, but with calm winds through the end of the week, you still have a shot. We’re also seeing a surprise crop of weakfish in Rhode Island, awesome American shad fishing in CT and MA, trout fishing remains strong throughout the region—things are happening!
