Well, we just had the first northeaster of the fall, but it wasn’t as bad as it was supposed to be, only lasting through Saturday with no rain but a bunch of wind.
Star Island will hold its MAKO MANIA PLUS THRESHER AND TUNA tournament this weekend and the local offshore fishing is doing just fine with a lot of makos around. Tuna on the other hand might be a problem. We have had fair bluefin action on the west Bank for the last couple of months with 50 or so pound fish. But true to my luck when I went out there Friday all I could find were dwarfs around 24-25 inches. Of course the little blow could have changed all of that.
Inshore it seems like the fluke are getting a little trickier with Cartwright and Rocky Hill dropping off, although there are plenty of seabass out there.
There are still plenty of big stripers around and will likely remain that way for at least the next month, and live porgies are catching better lately.
