Two Spots New England Fishing Report

A short two spots New England fishing report before returning home to Florida.

Tuesday Susan and I visited her sister Jacalyn and niece Dezi, taking them to Duxbury for some shell hunting. The tide was low and outgoing. Because it’s what I do I looked for fish. Look, there’s one! There’s another!

I put the eight weight together, tied on a chartreuse Clouser Minnow, and started flinging. Forty minutes later I had released four schoolie stripers and missed several strikes. Never got my toes wet.

Saturday I got a boat from Freedom Boat Club in Stratford, on the Housatonic River. Mike Briola, father of daughter-in-law to be, joined me. Tide was low outgoing.

Basically we floated with the current down to the river’s mouth, casting jigs as we went. Fish were breaking sporadically. We got a mixed bag of American shad, schoolie stripers, and bluefish. At the jetty there were birds working over bluefish. It was Saturday and several boats were working them. Tiring of possible combat fishing, we opted out.

The bite stopped once the tide turned. Our fishing day ended shortly after.

We are travelling back to Florida on Tuesday. See you next week!
