• Connecticut DEEP Saltwater Fishing Report – 06 SEP 2012



Blackfish recreational fishing season is now closed and will reopen again on October 10th.

Bluefish fishing is about as good as it gets throughout LIS!

Snapper Bluefish fishing is near peak fishing in the tidal rivers.

The Striped Bass night time fishery has picked for those anglers slinging eels. Fishing spot include the usual locations: the reefs off Watch Hill, Ram Island Reef, Thames River, Plum Gut, Pigeon Rip, Little Gull Island, outer Bartlett Reef, Black Point including Niantic Bay, the “humps” south of Hatchett Reef, lower Connecticut River, Long Sand Shoal, Cornfield Point, Southwest Reef including outer SW Reef, Six Mile Reef, the reefs off Madison, Guilford, and Branford, Falkner Island area, and upper New Haven Harbor.

Also, Charles Island area, lower Housatonic River, buoys 18 and 20 off Stratford Point, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Penfield Reef, the reefs around the Norwalk Islands, and Cable and Anchor Reef.

Fluke fishing is slow at best.

Porgy fishing is fantastic on any rock pile or structure in LIS!

Black Sea Bass fishing is good to excellent but there are a lot of throwbacks (sublegal fish).

Little Tunny and Atlantic Bonito are on the move off the Watch Hill area, south shore of Fishers Island, the Race, Sluiceway, Jordan Cove to Millstone Point, Bartlett Reef, and off Black Point.

Blue Claw Crabbing is at peak along the coast!
