Hot on the heels of the first stripers of the century for the CSA the first blue of the century was caught.(Unless a member caught one between Wed. and today)

While fishing the outflow of Millstone with a 5" Fin-S and a 1/2oz head I caught a 2-3lb blue that put a nice bend in the rod and even took a bit of drag. (Using light tackle)

Rich thats great news. Is the millstone accessable to the public or empoyees only . I fish around montville some, always looking for some action to get me through the winter (if you can call it that this year)how did your fin-s survive the chompers?

Outstanding Rich.
I guess over here we'd qualify for some of the first Blacks, as water temps are holding and we still have a steady bite of 6-9 pounders on Brenton reef. Also a stray Cod here and there.

JCD,
I'm not sure what the definitive answer is. I have seen many non-company people there this year but I have also heard of a few people getting tossed out. I have a feeling it may be who the security guard on duty is.

In talking with the locals, it seems that both Montville and Norwich have been pretty slow this year. It also appears there is no shore access to the river behind Thermos anymore. Another fishing spot bites the dust. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

By the way, the Fin-S didn't survive!
