• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 16 October 2013
Once again the bluefish wore us out.
And, once again, it was the birds who told us where the fish were.
Was a bit rough out on Long Island Sound despite the promise by NOAA that winds would drop...so we fought some of the fish from a seated position.
Roy landed enough blues to feed family, friends, and neighbors.
I gripe quite often about lunkhead boaters who mess up the fishing for everyone else...so it seems right that when a boater uses common sense and courtesy, I should mention that. These boaters were trolling and went around the outside of the school...not right through it. Then they were casting at the fish and stayed a respectable distance from our boat...didn't cut off any of our drifts, or otherwise carry on in a lunkhead fashion. Some other boaters could learn from these fishermen.
