Here on Long Island? we have a power plant too and it also holds some impressive bass! Just wondering, what are you using to catch those bass?
I have already cleaned and stripped the reels,fixed the rods,organized the tackle box. Now making leaders,sharpening knives,practicing GPS skills,and I'm still bored!, waiting for SPRING,especially with this spring weather in Jan.
I'm on pause mode. I was thinking about going to Conny, but someone came over and Blammmmo- half of my flyfishing gear was gone?! Hopefully, I'll get back a couple of flies. Crazy - keep your paws out of the black box that this X-person has, OK.
Alberto, there are a few aquariums in CT that always have nice striper tanks. I go when it's cold out and stare at the tanks all day, then go to the skate petting zoo (yes there is such a thing). Norwalk aquarium. It's a long drive from Lindenhurst, but worth it. Nice shark specimens too.
Huskers, on the Housy...
White bucktail, 1/4-1/2 oz (anything heavier gets caught in the rocks), with small yellow porkrind worked slowly @ Devon works the best IMO, especially on warm days like we've been having.
Also, knowing and watching the locals VERY intimately, there are times when soft plastics work well too, particularly those that imitate baby rainbow trout (pink speckle sides with dark green back).
That's brackish water...don't forget you might bump into some big and stupid gizzard shad. They are attracted to small jigs with lots of glitter.
