• Connecticut DEEP Fishing Report – 05 JUL 2012

Striped Bass fishing remains good during the "thunder" full moon. Early morning (before sunrise) or night fishing has been the most productive. The usual areas include the Watch Hill reefs, lower Thames River, the Race, Plum Gut, Pigeon Rip, Little Gull, outer Bartlett Reef, Black Point, Hatchett Reef, lower Connecticut River, Long Sand Shoal, Cornfield Point, Southwest Reef (outer), Six Mile Reef, the reefs off Branford, Faulkner's Island, New Haven Harbor (including Sandy Point).

Also, Charles Island area, Housatonic River, buoys 18 and 20 off Stratford Point, east of Milford, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Bridgeport Harbor, Penfield Reef, around the Norwalk Islands, and Cable and Anchor Reef.

Bluefish continues to improve with an influx of good size choppers and "alligator-sized" blues invading Long Island Sound. Bluefish weighing in the low to high teens are being reported.

Fluke fishing is fair to good overall.

Porgy fishing is good to excellent on the major reefs/rock piles. Porgies measuring 12 to 15 inches in length are the norm. Excellent fishing has been reported at these shore fishing locations: Rocky Neck State Park, Meigs Point Hammonassett State Park and Fort Trumbull State Park.

Black Sea Bass fishing is good on the reefs/wrecks and also on the fluking grounds.

Blue Crabbing is pretty hot in the tidal creeks of Stonington to Mystic and Westbrook to Guilford.”
