"The Fisherman Magazine's" weekly Fishing Report


October 28, 2019:

Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 said if you're looking for schoolies go to the mouth of any river, inlet or harbor and you're likely to find them in good numbers. Light tackle guys are crushing on Jumpin' Minnows and small soft plastics. The flats at the mouth of the CT River have been holding lots of school bass with a slightly higher percentage of fish in the low 30-inch class; these fish are taking some larger topwater plugs and Slug-Go's as well. The fish are biting all day, so there's no need to wake up early to cash in. Albies are still popping up now and then, Harkness, Duck Island and the Thames have all had albies as well as bonito at one point this week. The more consistent fishing for albies has been at Plum Island, Orient Point and Montauk. Blackfish action has been very good with lots of shorts but also plenty of smaller keepers in the 18- to 20-inch range. A few korkers have come in too, though, including a 14-9 weighed in by an unnamed angler this week, who brought the fish to the scale in a live well and released it after weigh-in. The best results are coming from depths of 20 to 50 feet.
