• Connecticut DEEP Fishing Report - 21 JUN 2012

Striped Bass and Bluefish fishing remains good. The Race, Plum Gut, and Pigeon Rip are again consistent striper and bluefish fishing locations. Other fishing spots include the Watch Hill area, Thames River, outer Bartlett Reef, Black Point, Hatchett Reef, lower Connecticut River, Long Sand Shoal, Cornfield Point, Southwest Reef, Six Mile Reef, the reefs off Branford, and New Haven Harbor (including Sandy Point.

Also Charles Island area, Housatonic River, buoys 18 and 20 off Stratford Point, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Bridgeport Harbor, Penfield Reef, around the Norwalk Islands and rocky reefs, and Cable and Anchor Reef. Schools of Atlantic menhaden (bunker) are in many of the tidal rivers and harbors which means stripers and choppers are not far away!

Fluke fishing is fair to good with a lot of sub-legal throwbacks being reported. Fishing locations include south side of Fishers Island (Isabella Beach, Wilderness Point), off the Stonington breakwater, mouth of the Mystic River to Groton Long Point, Thames River channel, Black Point/Niantic Bay, Long Sand Shoal, Westbrook-Clinton area, Falkner Island area, New Haven Harbor to West Haven, and off the mouth off the Housatonic River.

Porgy fishing is fair to good on the major reefs.

Black Sea Bass fishing is excellent in Block Island Sound.

Hickory Shad fishing is good in the lower Connecticut River by the DEEP Marine Headquarters fishing pier.

Monster Skates have been caught at Long Sand Shoal if anyone is interested.
