DEEP seems a little slow getting these reports posted.
Striped Bass: Fishing remains good especially from dusk to dawn. Live lining bunker on three-way rigs have been very effective. Just remember to use circle hooks to reduce “gut hooking”. Striper spots include the Watch Hill reefs, lower Thames River, the Race, Plum Gut, Pigeon Rip, Little Gull Island, 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, Falkner Island area, New Haven Harbor (including Sandy Point), and the Charles Island area.
Also Housatonic River, buoys 18 and 20 off Stratford Point, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Bridgeport Harbor, Penfield Reef, around the Norwalk Islands, and Cable and Anchor Reef. Also, don’t forget about our coastal state parks for shore fishing access.
