The Fisherman Magazine Weekend Video Forecast 6/17/2021 – New England
New England Editor, Dave Anderson brings you all the breaking news on what’s happening around the Northeast fishing scene. The Canal saw its first big push of heavyweight stripers this week with several reports of 40-, and even, 50-pound linesiders landed from the banks of the Big Ditch. Narragansett Bay is still pumping out big stripers as well, even with water temps eclipsing 70 degrees, the abundant bunker schools are keeping them happy and healthy in the bay. Fluke fishing has come alive in a big way on Nantucket Shoals, where double-digit fluke are coming over the rails at an alarming rate and doormats to 15 pounds have been reported! Block Island is poised to break open, huge schools of sand eels showed up over the last couple days bringing bluefish, bass and fluke with them. It’s June, is there a better time to be fisherman in New England?
