The Critters We Have to Deal With

“…swimming about 10 feet off the beach staring at us with those doggy eyes. The second the seals saw the fishing rod bend they would take off like lightning…and steal the fish right off the hook. Brazen was the only word for it.”

Connecticut: $3 Million in Conservation Grants for Long Island Sound

“Last week, top federal and state environmental officials announced 33 grants to state and local government and community groups under the Long Island Sound Futures Fund (Sound Futures Fund). The $1,011,878 will be leveraged by $1.92 million contributed by the recipients, providing a total of nearly $2.94 million for on-the-ground conservation in Connecticut and New York.

“Connecticut did well in the latest round of funding. A total of 19 Connecticut projects will receive funds totaling more than a half million dollars.”

Fishing in the Winds of November

“…even when the wind blows icy, November can present some terrific angling opportunities on Long Island Sound. True, there are days when only a fool or a glutton for punishment would venture out on the water, but when the sun shines and the wind eases just a bit, November can be a terrific time to fish before the really icy weather sets in.”

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