If you live in Connecticut, Rhode Island or Massachusetts, this is a great time to be fishing the coast. The days grow short, the wind swings to the north, and stronger tides make themselves known. Together, these changes kick start the coastal migration. Striped bass, bluefish, bonito and false albacore roar through the rips. And the fishing is red hot.
Recently I got a report from my son in Connecticut. He’s fairly new to the salt chuck. But he’s loving bluefish. A couple days back he hooked a bunch on the Connecticut shore. Man those critters run, jump and pull with the best of them. Topping things off he found some schoolie stripers. Now that makes for a great day on the water.
