Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 26 June 2016...Housatonic River To Be Dredged...Reports: Cape Cod, Boston Harbor, Long Island

Still catching up on photos from recent trips. Click on any photo to enlarge...see a slide show:

Grandson James joined Andrew and me for a chance to land James's first striped bass.

We first started out with James using sandworms on a bobber...didn't get a nibble.

Meanwhile, Andrew was using a jig and plastic combination and hooking up...so we switched James...

...to a similar rig. He could cast it quite well and soon landed his first striper.

He hooked another...

...and got that in the boat as well.

Unfortnately, we lost this fish at the side of the boat...hook pulled out...and, of course, it was the biggest fish of the trip.

Still, it was a successful outing.

• Cape Cod, Boston Harbor…

“We’re in the sweetest spot of the striper season. Water temperatures from Cape Cod Bay to the North Shore have warmed enough to set the food chain in motion and draw in migrating stripers, but the water is not yet hot enough to drive bass into deep, offshore waters.

“Conditions are just right for stripers, and that has them feeding in areas where shore, kayak and small-boat fishermen can connect....”

• Long Island…

“Stripers, too, remain on the bite. Linesiders are hitting bunker chunks on the South Shore beaches, plugs cast after dark between Northport and Port Jefferson, and diamond jigs off Orient Point.

“The latter spot has been especially good for the local charter and head boats....”
