New York – Long Island. Jennifer Sanchez caught her first ever weakfish this week while fishing out of New Rochelle on the Sound Bound. Once again, the weather did not play to the favor of anglers across Long Island this week. However, a couple calm, sunny days did manage to squeak through and lead to decent production in most waters. False albacore and striped bass are slowly returning to action since the last storm but bluefish have recovered the quickest and seem to be dominating the bait so far. The always present and plump porgies refused to be slowed down and weakfish have made another push for attention as some boats managed to fill their limits. Poppers and bait have been doing the trick and just about anything in between is worth a shot as well. The surprising action has been with the weakfish this week. Some of these weaks have been reaching up to 8 pounds. Scup continue to carpet the bottoms of any muscle beds or rocky bottoms and bass have been spotty but John managed to hook into a inch fish with a pencil popper in the early hours of morning.

The line should be replace the parentheses with angle brackets: Seems the HTML has loaded the code when copied with formatting stuff and breaks the compile. But as near as I can tell the only line that got broken is the include statement. However, I also posted it at http: Seems to run beautifully using the bit-banging code from a previous post, but I am wondering about the reed-switch setup.
A severe dust storm has hit NSW which has caused a public health warning has been put in place for Sydney and Canberra, as concerns a repeat of the famous dust storm could be on the cards.
And I nearly missed it As night fell the whiting were on the baits in seconds, not many sizeable ones but definitely kept me entertained, busy and warm feeling in. I packed up around 1 and headed home but all in all a good day, thanks for the great lug and see you soon. Colin” Ragworm back on the menu Don’t be left in the dark Using the fresh rag and frozen lug and squid you provided we had plenty of fish which were all Whiting and Dogfish with no bass showing.
After it went dark the Whiting went crazy and were taking the bait as soon as hit the water but it was nice to catch lots of fish. I had a few hours on the lures today down samphire hoe. I was the only one there in a cold easterly wind. Caught wrasse and pouting then on the way home decided to stop in at dungy and have a chuck for a bass. Didn’t catch any but was worth a cast and was a nice end to the day as the sun was going down.
We hope all Nick’s friends who can will take part Steve Harvey has kindly agreed to run the match, if you need more info just give me a shout
Fishing report for week of March 28-April 3: Bass Lake bite picking up the pace | The Fresno Bee
The striped bass took about an hour to get biting as the tide flow gathered velocity, but once they started it was game on! We had multiple drifts of 3 and 4 rod hookups as we drifted our sand eels across the sand bars of the rips. Unfortunately we had no one else to share this amazing fishing with as there wasn’t another boat anywhere near us! We caught a limit of 12 stripers and one bass for myself within 2. The average size of the fish we landed was 36 or 37 inches.
Nice bass for the end of August, no?

Posted by RichZ on: We got low thirties with no wind to speak of and snow in the morning. And ice in the guides as long as we were out there. Steve and I launched his boat around daybreak and headed down river. The water, which had been dirty and flowing hard the previous day was reasonably clear and flowing moderately. We caught fish, but never had a fast and furious bite.
Every now and then, one of us would catch three or four in a row, but for the most part it was a one here, two there kind of day. Steve put a couple keeper in the boat, starting out with a 30 incher and banging a beautiful 41 inch fish a short time later. A little skim ice, plenty of mud, a whole lot of oil, and oh yeah, a bunch of fat girls. Regardless of having to wipe it down to get the mud and oil off when I pulled it from the water today, it was great to finally get out in my own boat again, and Alex and I had some great fishing.
We started out hoping to get a few keepers early, and when the bigger fish seemed to be in a chewing mood, we adjusted our plan of attack to hopefully maximize our keeper catch. Part of our strategy was to sacrifice steady action from the little guys by staying off the thick schools of fish.

Fishing Basics. Trolling is one of the most productive and my favorite method of catching dolphin. My tackle choice is a 20# – 30# lever drag reel, a matched /2’ – 6’ stand-up rod and 20# – 30# mono line.
Lures such as jerkbaits, flukes, and tubes are also effective. The popularity of the California Aqueduct has led to increased numbers of anglers, and in order to maintain the right to continue to fish along these public areas, fishermen are encouraged to take out all trash and debris when departing. Fishing will run until Guests with their own poles are encouraged to bring them; the park staff will hand out loaner poles, but supplies are limited.
Individuals 16 or older must have a valid fishing license. Eastman has risen to 76 percent capacity. The lake rose from 28 percent capacity to 40 percent and the water is dirty.

We are having a good time drinking a few beers throughout the day and the later it gets, the more crazy it gets. Eventually I’m near blackout and all I can really remember is being behind the pool with this girl I was friends with, eating her out. In my drunken state I could have sworn that it was dark enough behind there but when I awoke the next day, my father assured me it wasn’t.
Not only could he assure that but so could everyone who was there
Effective May 1, new rules will govern the manner and times of recreational fishing for Gulf of Maine (GOM) cod and haddock in state and in federal waters (Table 1 and Table 2) for the fishing year (FY16) of May 1, – April 30,
Use fresh rather then frozen Bunker if you can get it. When chumming be sure not to be too generous or skimpy with the chum. It’s a good idea to release chum at 2 to 3 minute intervals to keep a consistent chum slick and hold fish. Too much chum and the fish will hang back for the easy meal and not bother to move up into the slick for your baits. Too little chum and your not going to hold or attract fish.
Trolling speed is not too critical for bluefish. When trolling bunker spoons slow it down until you see your pole pulsing in an erratic side to side and bobbing motion. When trolling other lures like tubes,jigs, and umbrella rigs try and stay close to the bottom without hanging up.

Recent fishing trips have produced redfish, trout, sheepshead, snook, snapper and more. Anglers Cliff and Ed scored on trout, jacks and snappers before chasing rolling tarpon to no avail. The pesky tarpon were feeding on small baits on the surface but refused everything Cliff and Ed offered them. The next day Jim and Tommy fished the Banana river and added a golden memory to their fishing chronicles.
Here’s a brief description of the great inshore fishing that’s available around Sandy Hook, NJ, Striped Bass Season: March 1 to Dec 31 (Rivers, Bays and miles offshore).
My first failing was realizing that trout have occupied a place of great prominence because of their surroundings and the stunning mountainous areas they can be found. As a foe, they are largely predictable —and are are weakened due to a steady influx of federally funded variations that are less wary, climatic conditions that are less conducive to their survival, and the crush of forces present in the wildland-urban interface. The science is the same, the reasoning and deduction, the mechanics of casting, the understanding of flora and fauna and their lifecycles are unchanged, but the physics of tackle, water, and how the quarry makes use of terrain and cover all have to be rethought.
Most importantly, how to overcome the adversity of large bodies of deep water and their ever-present wind. How to get flies within visual range of an ambush predator …versus throwing exacting imitations at fish that move from safety into the open to feed on the same set of insects at the same time each evening. Our tackle and its physical limitations, our unspoken preferences, and the genteelness of our pastime are ill suited to this environment.
Fly Tackle and its limitations The weaknesses of fly tackle are well known.

The severe coastal storm early this week kept most fishermen at the dock and made a mess of the water. However, the water has begun to settle down and clean up, and early reports indicate that albies are still around, stripers are feeding heavily, and the fishing will bounce back this weekend. Connecticut Fishing Report The water was absolutely filthy after the storm, reported Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook, with coffee-colored waves breaking on the beaches.
The good news is that the water has already cleaned up a great deal and as of Thursday morning schoolie stripers were chasing peanut bunker along the local beaches. Conditions should only improve heading into this weekend. Andrew of Fishin Factory 3 in Middletown reported that with water temperatures warmer than usual, blackfishing has been good in shallower water and should remain good this weekend as the water settles.
The shop has switched to fall hours and is open Fri-Sat-Sun from now until March. Fishermans World in Norwalk reported that post-storm, the fishing has been on fire in the Western Sound. Loads of bait, mostly peanut bunker, are in the shallow water off beaches and harbors and striped bass have been blitzing away. Albies are still around as well, and there are some big blues mixed in.
