Good reports coming in. As we are getting hit with the outer ring of Hurricane Jose, the previous week leading up to the storm has had excellent fishing. Albies are in, generally east of Fairfield, with a few sporadic reports of Alberts in the islands. Adult Bunker are hanging far upriver from our local rivers, where they become brackish. As temps continue to drop, we’ll see the annual feeding frenzy that occurs when these baitfish hit the open water. Add to that we have juvenile “peanut” bunker in our estuaries, that are heading out/are already out in open water. As always, the bigger bass will be on the bigger baits. All signs are pointing to a good fall run. Once the storm clears out, and the muddied water starts cleaning up, I’m hoping the storm will kick start migrations. We will have sustained north/northeast winds for awhile pushing some c
With the good fishing, we also unfortunately see a lot of wahoos and jamokes out on the water. So here’s my pitch for courtesy on the sound:
-Never run through, or within 20 yards of a surface blitz. You WILL Spook the fish, and you WILL Piss off any other anglers fishing the biltz. Lose Lose.
-DO keep your distance from the blitz. The fish are actively feeding, they will be moving. There’s a lot more you can’t see below the surface, you don’t need to be on top of them to catch fish.
