Braved the cold and wind to scratch that winter fishing "itch." I hopped a ferry across the Sound and met a friend for some winter holdover bass. They behave much differently than the rest of the year and a soft touch is required, but I'm getting the hang of it. Past experiences there have taught that,in addition to a variety of soft white plastics, electric socks (get extra batteries) can make a big difference.The water temps might be in the 30s, but the air temps were in the teens. We found the fish and had a great day on the water. Get your CT inland fishing license ($55 for out-of-staters like me) and catch 'em up year round!

Does your depth sounder say 96 feet of water? If so pretty deep in the Housatonic river

The fees

To access my own Long Island beaches (county, state, and town 4x4 permits) costs me about $175 every year. If I wasn't a NYS resident, it would be well over $300. This is a fishing report. I'll save "outrage" for editorials.

Actually, it's deeper than I was expecting before I went there, with a lot of the best spots over 40 feet deep. But no, that was my faulty temp gauge telling me that the water was 96 degrees. I wish.
