A slow weekend

I managed to fish twice this weekend:

Friday morning for a few hours before work, I hit the CT coast for some kayak action. I took about seven small stripers and watched a pod of albies fly by me at high speed. There were no signs of bait or birds, so I was pleased with the fish that I did catch.

Sunday in South County RI, Bert and I fished from Watch Hill to Quonny. The breachways and beachfronts were deader than dead. No birds, no bait, and only some micro bass caught by a few spinfishers. There were birds working some active fish at the back of a salt pond, but the kayak was at home.....

Thanks to a school of hickory shad during the last twenty minutes of daylight, we avoided the skunk. The water still seems a bit warm, so I really don't think that things are over. And based on reports coming from Massachusetts, there seems to still be a number of fish that should be coming this way. We'll see.

Same here as far as the beaches go. BIG school Albies this AM outside of the Mystic River. Out of range but exciting to watch their progression as I left for work. Oh, it was too late to call out sick!

This is a good sign! Must be lots of forage fish still inside waiting to bust out with the lower temps coming. Hold on tight! It's going to be a fast ride!!!!!

O.K. - so, who's up for this coming week-end?

Not sure what the weather holds but it would be fun to steal a few more casts in November and it sounds like it 'aint over yet ......

We couldn't tell what the bait was that the fish were on. The only bait we saw around the edges of the pond were mummies and killies.

Mental note: always bring the kayak, even if my fishing partner has to stand without one and watch me catch fish.

Hi Guys,

Mark - Glad to see your still gettin out to fish this fall season, wish you could got into them. I know what it's like to spend all day looking only to find them out of reach. I expect you may be up for going fishing again. Wanna go Kayak fishing Sunday?

I was thinking kayak fishing down in Phil's neighborhood Sunday, wasn't sure if you and/or Adrian, Phil or other forum member would be interested in going. Do the ferry to montauk with the yaks could be a gas. We can work out details on a spot if you like if it's not too far west.

Greg.

Ok, Mark let us know your availability, if not this weekend perhaps another time
weather permitting

Adrian - Sounds good, we'll see how the weather and fishing info looks when we
get closer to the weekend.

Phil - Another time perhaps.

Greg.

You might want to launch somewhere near my house in Mystic. Birds working pretty thick the last two days. Weather is not a factor anymore. The game now is finding bunker! Rhoddy is toast inshore as far as I'm concerned. I'm going to the beaches there this morning to do some scouting. I have the next four days off.

Gentlemen-

I have clearance from ground control. Let's monitor the fishing reports and weather, and see where we'll start on Sunday.

Looking forward to it.

Hey Fellas. Just got back from Weekapaug. A blitz and plenty of bass and blues in the mix. It was a spectacle casting into a 30 knot easterly but the fish & birds were in close at Fire District. Not a classic showing of birds but satisfying none the less. Some eel throwers took several large fish last night from the jetty. Good luck on Sunday. If you head for Sandy Point in Stonington, Ct., let me know. Yaks best launched from the Stonington Point beach for a shorter run across in colder water.

Phil
