Default 2017 Western Long Island Sound Fishing Reports

I figured it would be a great idea to get this thread started. My hope is a lot of good information will shared this year. Lets keep the reports west of Westport -- Eaton's Neck to the Throggs Neck Bridge.

I want to wish every a safe and productive year. Fingers crossed the striped bass find their way to our waters this year.

My boat gets splashed Friday, April 29th. How about you?

Just curious. Did stripers not show up much in western LIS last year? Is that typical or just an off year?

Great idea for our area Scott, thanks! I'm still hoping to get in the water next week and at least start casting for holdover schoolies but the weather may not cooperate with my plan, I've still got a little prep to do on the boat and this rain hasn't been helpful!

Looking forward to following and hopefully will be able to contribute. I'm fishing out of Mamaroneck harbor. Few more weeks before boat gets to the water. Good luck out there guys.

Last year we had a short spurt of hot striper fishing down at Fort Totten in mid to late April. The rest of the Spring run was pretty poor. The late Fall run was spectacular -- the best in over a decade. This year looks like it will be off to a slow start.

Thanks Scott - I hope to be in the water around the same time as you. I'm getting some electronics done (new GPS and Radar), so I'll be a little delayed. Was hoping for 4/15 but it's not going to happen

Went out for a quick trip Saturday morning. Water is still in the upper 40's so no real luck. Saw lots of bunker though in Huntington Harbor so I think we could be in for a good run here in a few weeks!

Fueled up in Mamaroneck Harbor and then slow trolled around the Caps and out in the shallows towards Playland. Didn't mark much and didn't catch either! :-) Water seemed to be hovering at 50 -51 and I actually saw quite a few good sized Jelly fish, not sure what that was about, it seems early for them...

Yes, I've been getting a few in the harbors - nothing of size. On The Water is reporting bigger fish moving up through the bridges, and the Fisherman is reporting big Blues on the South shore and Jaimaca Bay - so I was hoping for some signs of bigger Stripers or Blues.

I saw more of those Big Jelly fish today out towards the end around Hen island....really strange.....
