New London Area Fishing Report...Connecticut State Record Blackfish Caught


”… weighed in the monster, a 23.55 pound giant tautog caught by 83-year-old Ken Owen of Fairfield in 23 feet of water on the south side of Two Tree Channel. They also weighed in a 14.6 pound black, this on top of the recent 18-pounder caught from shore at Jordan Cove.

”School stripers are along the beaches on some days, best early or late in the day from the mouth of the Thames to Hatchett's Point, hitting small swimmers and poppers. After dark there is always a chance at a larger bass this time of year for people that bundle up and keep at the long hours, possibly getting only a hit or so per trip but that might be the biggest surf fish of the season.”
