Fluke, Dog Days, and a Bluefish Massacre

Fluke, Fluke, Fluke

“A fluke's chances of winning a fish beauty contest are less than slim. Just having both eyes on one side of its head puts this bottom-dwelling species at a severe disadvantage in the looks department. And those dark blotches, great for matching the bottom, but ugh!”

Dog Days’re Here

“With August approaching, you may find the striper fishing becoming a little tougher under the summer sun. Every fisherman loves a good excuse, and that’s evidenced by the fact that New England anglers often refer to this time as the summer doldrums or the dog days of summer, when hot, hazy weather seems to make everything move a little slower, including the fish.”

Don’t forget, a saltwater fishing license is now required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. You can purchase one for $10.00 from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
