The scale at Brewski's in Pawcatuck had three 50-pound stripers on it since last week. All were caught on the Watch Hill Reefs either with live eels or chunking mackerel with lead core line to keep the bait down in the current.

Surfcasters can get in on the action from Napatree Beach. No 50#ers, but some nice fish.

From the West Wall in RI to Old Saybrook, CT there are daily blitzes of bass. I've mostly been into schoolies, but the bigger fish are soon to show.

Now is the time to put in your time.

Striper fishing on the Connecticut has slowed down north of Middletown. Action is good in the lower River.
Saltwater fishing for striped bass is rated as good at the Race, Hatchetts Reef, Plum Gut, Millstone, Long Sand Shoal, Bartlett Reef and on the Watch Hill reefs. Bluefish have moved into the Eastern Sound with the best fishing in the Race.

Default Connecticut striper report

Striped bass hunters are finding loads of small sub-legal schoolie bass in all the tidal rivers and harbors. The beauty of these fish is they can be caught on almost anything. Small mackerel or bunker chunks work well for the bank sitters. Lures and flies are scoring with the beach waders. Dawn and evening hours are the best times to go looking for the schoolie bass. Since most of these fish are below the legal limit, crush the barbs on your hooks flat to facilitate quick releases.

Larger "cow" striped bass in the 35- to 45-inch range are on the offshore reefs and in the strong tidal rips. Free lining eels or hickory shad is a hot live bait tactic for the giants. Also, mackerel chunks, white or red tube-and-worms, and small 7-inch wide umbrella rigs are taking the reef fish. Some of the typical striper haunts include the reefs off Watch Hill, Fishers Island, Ram Island Reef, the Race, Plum Gut, Bartlett Reef, Hatchett Reef, Long Sand Shoal, Southwest Reef, Sixmile Reef, Browns Reef, the mouth of the Quinnipiac River in New Haven Harbor, Smith Point, Sunken Island, and the outer perimeter of the Norwalk Islands.

Striped bass and bluefish are whacking bait chunks, trolling rigs, swimming plugs, casting spoons and drift rigs, such as the tube-n-worm. Locally, anglers are enjoying these fish off Calf Pasture Beach, Sherwood Island Beach, Compo Beach, around
Sunken Island, in Southport Harbor, off Penfield Reef, deep inside Black Rock Harbor, Bridgeport Harbor, around Buoy 18, Buoy 20, in the lower Housatonic River between the Merritt Parkway Bridge and the river's mouth, south of Charles Island, in New Haven Harbor and throughout the Thimble Island chain.
