• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 15 September 2012

A bit foggy in Hometown, CT at 0500 on Friday morning.

Arriving at the dock, we could see just a sliver of moon above the mastheads...and reflected in the water.


Probably off to the nearest golf course.

Sun finally boiled up out of Long Island Sound at 0630.

Rich N. was on board Shoo-Fly with me today.

Egret seeking breakfast.

About a half-hour after wake-zone-lunkhead number one, pictured here, buzzed trough the no-wake zone, the Stratford Marine Police boat came out of the mouth of the Housatonic River.

Police also missed lunkhead number two pictured below.

Wake-zone-lunkhead number two.

Rich and I caught a bunch of fish...about three times as many bluefish as striped bass, but they were mostly small.

A couple of the fish we landed would have made for a decent photo, but I figured, "naw, toss that one back; we'll get a bigger one." And then the bigger one never showed up.

Still, these fish are a blast on light tackle.

The marsh grasses have already started to take on their nice fall golden colors.

Another great day on the water.
