• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 12 May 2014

There was a lot of activity on the lower Housatonic River on Monday...many work-boats and birds, for example.

The new marsh grasses are arising from the banks of the River.

This was amazing to see: A mute swan, for unknown reasons, had gotten extremely angry with a Canada goose and chased it for maybe a hundred yards down the Stratford side of the River.

Not a lot to tell about fishing. During the short time we were out there, before the weather encouraged us to get off the water, we found a few striped bass but they seemed to be scattered about...not at all schooled up.

Didn't see any fish being caught by the other boats out there, however, we saw one keeper taken at Milford Point by a wading spin-fisherman.

Quiet day fish-wise, but still lots to see.

• Bluefish Showing Up in New Jersey

“I didn't have any high hopes early this morning as it was low tide, and not a good time to fish my favorite beaches.

"I went to Point Pleasant for deeper waters, and found a fairly large swell that was breaking inshore. It was easy to cast a plug over those waves, and there was good water right to the drop-off.

”To my surprise, there was also some action as I released three bluefish from 20 to 23 inches plus two small stripers on the Daiwa SP Minnow.”
