BLUEFISH fishing remains good to excellent in the Race, Sluiceway, and Plum Gut. Other spots include
the reefs off Watch Hill, Ram Island Reef in Fishers Island Sound, humps south of Wilderness Point off
Fishers Island, Millstone outflow, Bartlett Reef, Black Point, Pigeon Rip (area north of Plum Island),
Hatchett Reef, Long Sand Shoal, Southwest Reef, Sixmile Reef, Falkner Island area, the reefs off Guilford
and Branford, New Haven Harbor (Sandy Point), Charles Island area to Milford Point, Buoy 20 off
Stratford, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Penfield Reef, around the Norwalk Islands, and the reefs off
STRIPED BASS fishing has picked up and can be found at the same areas mentioned for bluefish. The only problem is trying to get a hook bait or lure past those toothy critters.
SCUP fishing is prime time for trophy “hub caps”. Clam baits have been working well for those “panfish of the sea”.
Also, BLACK SEA BASS have been an added bonus on the scup grounds. Bucket mouths to about 4 lbs have been reported.
LITTLE TUNNY have been crashing the rips in eastern LIS from the Race (between Race Lighthouse and western Fishers Island) over to Little Gull Island and of course Montauk Point, NY for anglers willing to travel. Other inshore tuna spots include Bartlett Reef over to Black Point.
