Eastern Long Island Sound Albies, Blues and Bass

Captain Mike - 10/14/2011

10/11/11- Great 4 hour trip with the Johnston Family.  We were into great surface action for the entire trip.  Lots of albies and bluefish and a few bass blitzing on the reefs. The fish were moving fast and being boat shy.  Proper boat placement and a quick, accurate cast was essential for a hook up.  11 year old Liam landed a 10 plus pound albie that took a soft plastic.  We landed lots of 2 to 6 pound bluefish.  Also, dropping a jig down worked well and accounted for a few blues, one bass and a big porgy.  There are a lot of fish and lots of bait out their. Now is the time to fish before its too late.
