Addicted to Striped Bass

“…anything that causes a man to abandon his wife, ignore his children, miss work and spend all of his free time chasing stripers should at least be in the same league as the aforementioned deadly sins. The arrival of braggin’ sized stripers is still almost two months away but with the recent spate of warm temperatures (at least for a winter crazed New Englander) and bright sunshine fishermen are beginning to display abnormal behavior. “

Sight Fishing for Stripers

“I picked out one fish and after seeing it several times surface on the count, I cast just ahead of where I thought it would be. It was almost like fishing for tarpon. Once the striper broke the surface about 12 feet from the fly, I began stripping the line in erratic way and that’s all it took. The striper broke its cadence and crashed on the fly. I caught three more that evening with the biggest topping 38 inches.”

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.
