Can Fall Be Far Away?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September 1st: It was 47°F here in Woodbury this morning...certainly a portent of autumn.

Temps such as that mean that water temperatures on Long Island Sound, now hanging in at about 71°, will begin to drop. This will encourage larger stripers to venture out of the depths and into the shallows. And, as long as the Sound stays above 55°, the bluefish will still be with us.

Should be some of the best fishing of the year ahead.

We'll be on the water on Wednesday and Friday this week and will post reports of our findings.

“To restore a lobster population decimated in the die-off, the Bertolfs said more aggressive intervention is needed to eliminate what they believe is the illegal harvesting of egg-bearing female lobsters and curb damage caused by commercial clam dredges disturbing the sea floor.”

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.
