Good luck, have fun and be safe.

BTW, for those who care about eating the best tasting stripers of the year... the striped bass bonus program opened up. You do need to submit an application online (or by visiting the Division's Nacote Creek office a couple of miles up the road from me )


September 1, 2018, the SBBP regulations are as follows:
  • One fish per permit 24" to less than 28"
  • September 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018

I'm usually focused on tog when I get out in the fall, and have released any bycatch (stripers) when out for them, BUT if I can't get a tog, small stripers are a very tasty second (ok third, I do like flounder better as well).

Out today for round two, the beating on the beach I guess there mouths healed from the other day 43 short fluke and one keep. The problem is, when I made the mark on my rod, I made it 181/4 just to be safe. Unfortunately I forgot what I marked it at and the fluke that I released was 18 inches. Paul, thank you for the heavier sinker, that tide was ripping and I needed more lead to hold bottom. 132 shorts in 4 outings, they gotta start getting bigger

Yes and yes, I ran out of 4 inch swimming mullet, squido and had 3 grubs left when I walked off the beach. Color didn?t matter, white, chartruse, new penny squido The snappers and crabs were having a field day with the tails. I usually keep a few pieces of pork or otter tail with me. Because it?s all about the flutter, but of course I left them home. With the snapper zapper. When the tail gets chomped and you only have the body, put on the pork or otter tail and let them start teathing. I had one other that was about 17 inches, the rest were 15 and under.

too bad you couldn't snag a snapper and put one of them on, to cull out the <15"-ers

Moco Afternoon 3p-7p. In the back with a dropping tide and a south wind. Water was stained and warm. Occasional adult bunker flopping nearby I was live lining some large kills, that I had caught earlier. I caught one short and one at 22 inches.

Did some kayak fishing on Sunday in western Long Island Sound...my first trip after returning from the vacation. Nice conditions but very humid and warm at times. Did some fluking first and then porgy fishing. Caught nice 25" 6.1 lbs fluke ( my personal best)with 8 shorts, 3 dozen porgies between 12-15" with multiple small blues and sea robins..

Maybe I don't understand, but aren't laces just laces? I know there are some nasty cheap ones and better quality ones and shorter and longer, but are "wader laces" actually a thing?
