• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 28 May 2015

Sorry that we haven't made many reports recently.

[Flashes in the water in this photo are bunker up around the power lines on the Housatonic River.]

We were off the water for two weeks with an electrical malfunction on the boat.

[Ospreys were undoubtedly happy about the arrival of the bunker.]

I actually managed to correct the problem myself. Nothing quite like salt water and electronics. [Brant geese]

If I had a gazillion dollars I'd have a copter up there finding fish schools.

The story for us has been mostly schoolie stripers.

Charlie W. and I were out on Thursday and caught [and released] a bunch of them.

The oyster-dragger fleet was also out in full force...from the looks of the full sacks on their sterns, dragging was going well.

Egrets are back in the marshes.

Charlie suggested since the party boat was in the mouth of the Housatonic, there mustn't have been much going on at Middleground. I suggested that in the fog the boat looked like the Maid of the Mist.

Elegant swans keeping a close eye on us.

At least two coast guard boats were active in the area...we behaved ourselves and didn't get rousted. And I finally remembered to put the 2016 registration stickers on the boat.

Unusually, we were seeing the bottom in as much as eight feet of water. Nice to have it that clear for a change. May have something to do with the fact that the water temperature is only 55° on Long Island Sound.

Schoolie stripers were scattered all over the mouth of the River...we caught them in every spot we fished.

Lots of fun on light tackle.
