I haven't been able to get much info, but I heard of a 50+ pounder caught in the Branford River, CT this week. Still working on more of a firm report.

We are getting an awful lot of 50-pounders that I can't write down. Imagine: 50 pounder in Branard; 53 pounder in Long Island Sound section of Connecticut. Nobody knows if it is the same fish. Could be.

Even though I can't use these. Continue to do the best you can. Its what I pay yuz for

There have been reports of multiple fifties in Cape Cod Bay and the Block but I can't get any facts. I need identifiability or some get counted twice. I think, without knowing, that we are having a better fifties year than last. I think.

I listed Kelley's fifty. I assume it was boat caught because most are but do watch for any surf fish because I mention that in my report. Around 5 percent, maybe less, of fifties are surf fish.

Not much info but I counted it with the idea of being careful that it doesn't get counted twice. We are up to 29 fifties. We are getting a lot of vague reports with no information. The count may end up a joke. Thanks anyway.

Actually looking through the pictures it seems there were (at least ) 3 50s in the past few days...

They have to be weighed and the angler has to be identified. "Looks like" could weigh anything. I have weighed a lot of big bass and no one can look at a bass and say whether it is a 49 or 50.
