• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 14 OCT 2013
We caught so many bluefish today that they wore us out and we had to quit.
The birds told us where the bluefish were.
We got at least a hit, if not a hookup, on practically every cast.
These were mean, nasty, jumping, fighting bluefish that gave us a tussle on our light tackle.
Mostly in the 4-5 pound range.
This one hit Charlie's fly rod popper and ended up going home for dinner.
The fly I caught this chopper on is laying on the side of the fish's head and was rendered unusable by the bluefish's teeth. You can see the remnants of the fly if you click on the photo which will enlarge it.
They also hit underwater plugs and surface plugs.
Suffolk County police boat was cruising around. Didn't seem much interested in us.
