From old field to fishers island I haven't scored either fish this season....the bite seems great in RI, but non existent on LI. Wish more would chime in to see if its just me

Montauk, Block, most of RI, MV...hasn't been a consistent bite yet. Might be some Bonito about but IMO too early still for LIS , especially on the Albie front. Another two weeks IMO.

this past weekend saltwater guide Blaine Anderson was nailing Bones on the Connecticut side. I believe he posted a you tube video too.

The only thing that I've credibly heard so far is bonito around Block Island. Nothing on the albie front.

I would expect Blaine Anderson's haul was off Block as well as most of his videos/ reports have him running there for bonito bite. But I do hope it was closer to home.....

Word at the Islands still has them hanging a few miles off the beach with a cold water eddy keeping them from coming in off the beaches.

been scanning the typical westport/ norwalk haunts for the past 3 weekends now and havn't seen anything. Barely any bluefish around yet. Anyone like or have the Quantam Smoke or Cabo - was thinking of purchasing one for a lite tackle outfit?

my buddy fishes the smokes freshwater and that new blue one i think is the offshore or whatever they call it. I gave them a try and they are pretty nice. but me personally like shimano stradic better for the money

thanks for the input - i have the stradic on most my spin outfits already but it seems like the new cabo may be better fit for getting dunked in the salt? not sure if anyone can confirm

sorry he asked the question so figured I would be nice and answer...

But no albie love anywhere for me this year yet. Sad really, one of my personal fav fish to get on light tackle.

Was out yesterday looked from the Nissy to port jefferson. That east wind doesn't help things. There is a lot of bait off the points but I could only Id spearing. I haven't found any rain bait this year. The water is gin clear again. I hate to admitit but I have this feeling the north shore maybe done for the season.

Was out surfcasting Shinny yesterday. Didn't catch any myself, but it looked like albies blitzing outside the mouth at the bottom of LT. The blitzes onlly lasted a min or 2 before breaking up and moving 20-50yrds. Went on of a 1/2hr or so. They had the typical fan sprays of water from fast moving fish. Plus with plenty of gulls, terns, and commerants around, there were surprisingly few birds on the blitzes. Plus on the incomming tide, schools of rainbait (? Small 1" white bait) flushed into the jetties. As I said, I didn't hookup, but all the signs of albies were there.
