Salty first, then fresh

A pair of target and toothy critter trips After being busy all week with non-fishing related commitments, a wind free forecast for Friday had me headed out early for a half-day striper excursion out of the Housatonic River. Another favorable forecast gave me the opportunity to get a fresh water fishing fix on Saturday, with ... Read more The post Salty first, then fresh first appeared on RichZ's Bass Blog ..read more

A ‘???-???’ from the weekend.

I tend to stay away from waters that get crowded with other anglers and pleasure boaters on weekends. But the weather forecast sucked me in. The opportunity to get out on a calm day for once, drew me to the mouth of the Housatonic and nearby waters of Long Island Sound on Saturday morning. Solo ...

Not my best weekend ever

Didn’t get to fish as much as I should have. And when I did get to go, it kind of sucked. Friday, 9/2 On Friday, Jimfish and I took a ride up to Mudge. I guess I’ve reached the point where in my mind, “Mudge ain’t Mudge no more.” I’ve been fishing this place since ...

Topwater action on the sound

It was awfully crowded out there. When we got to the Baldwin Bridge boat ramp on the Connecticut River at 5:30 this morning, except for the fact that it was still pretty dark, the lot looked more like we expect it to look at 2 in the afternoon on a weekend. Filled to close to ... Read more The post Topwater action on the sound first appeared on RichZ's Bass Blog ..read more

Weather — it’s out to get me

The forecast for the area I wanted to fish on Tuesday was for a chance of light rain, and light winds starting from the NE, but switching to NW by 8 AM. That was the forecast. It sounded perfect. It wasn’t. Accurate. The actual weather was neither as perfect or as pleasant as the forecast ... Read more The post Weather — it’s out to get me first appeared on RichZ's Bass Blog ..read more

Hit Long Island Sound east of the Connecticut River on Saturday, fishing with Steve Durkee and his buddy Lee, out of Steve’s boat. We were about 90 minutes into the outgoing tide when we launched just after 6. I believe we were at our 4th spot of the morning when we finally started catching fish, ...

Fresh water with Jimfish

After three days of exceptional topwater action with stripers last week, I thought I could feel myself slipping farther from my freshwater bass fishing base. I knew I needed a freshwater trip to one of my favorite places to fish for bass. The destination decision Champlain would be my #1 choice. But it’s way too ...

Things got a little dicey on day 3

I was enjoying the afterglow of Thursday’s great striper fishing trip on the Sound, when I discovered that the forecast for the next day had changed. Instead of raining all morning, it was now predicted to be breezy and partly cloudy. The 8 to 10mh N/NW breeze seemed doable to me. I guess I chose ...

Had so much fun fishing on Tuesday, I had to go back and take advantage of the early morning incoming tide bite again today. The last fish in the gallery below is the first striper I’ve caught on something other than topwater since summer began. It hit a 5¾” Ice Shad Fin-S Fish rigged on ...

Can lightning strike twice, a year apart?

Last week, Carl and I took a saltwater trip, and while we caught some fish and had some fun, it wasn’t really the kind of action we were hoping for. Since then, I’ve spent some time checking my logs and older blog entries and discovered that the good striper fishing closer to home that I ...
