• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 30 May 2014


Have been somewhat remiss in posting updates on our fishing trips, so here are a variety of sights we've seen in recent days on the water.

Click on any photo to enlarge.



Maybe this is a new boat for Seatow...at any rate, it's definitely highly visible.


Osprey are nesting in several locations on the Housatonic River and Bridgeport harbor.


Housatonic railroad bridge being serviced.


Black-crowned night herons are back on the breakwaters.


Charlie W. caught this striper on a selfie [self-tied fly] Clouser minnow.


Downwind of one of these cormorant condos is truly odiferous.

Found out that you do not want to be eating a sandwich with that stench in your nostrils...makes you want to lift up the top piece of bread to be sure of what the sandwich is made of.



30 May Jim W. and I caught a handful of stripers...this is the first one of the day. It's always a good idea to photograph the first fish in the boat as it may also be the last one, and waiting for a bigger fish....

The best fish of the trip, a keeper got off just as I was latching onto his lower jaw with the boga grip...so no photo.
