• CT Lobstermen Not Happy with Proposed Fishing Ban
“About 200 Connecticut lobstermen spoke out Monday night against proposed measures that would affect the state's lobster industry, including a five-year ban on setting traps in Long Island Sound.”
• Flying Stripers?
“A fresh striped bass fell from the sky in Milton….
Yes, I know that's an eagle.
• First Half of Year Connecticut’s Warmest
“This is shaping up to be one of the warmest years on record, according to a recent analysis of average global temperatures for the first half of 2010 by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.”
Don’t forget, a 2010 saltwater fishing license is required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. Also, if you intend to fish above the Merritt Parkway bridge on the Housatonic River, you also need a Connecticut freshwater license. You can purchase these from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
