What are you going to fish for?The water is deep in gut and the current can move fast.You can leave the light tackle at home.Good striper and bluefish in the rip,blackfish in the rocks along Plum Island,the whole area is great.

slund,

I think fishing Plum Gut is similar to fishing The Race. You might have a look at the discussion boards on

http://www.ctfisherman.com/

for some clues, and there's more in the "Reader Articles" section.

Ebb tide is generally best but you can catch on either so long as the water is moving. You will observe two main drifts in the Gut, one close to each lighthouse. Watch the other boats in the area and fall into line. If you hook-up try to duplicate the drift on your plotter. It is such a small area, however, that if one drift seems dry it is easy to move over a bit.

I generally fish 1 1/4 oz bucktails with pork rind (light colors during the day, dark at night). Bucktail is attached to a three-way swivel with a 5' piece of 80 lb mono and then a weight between 12 and 16 ounces. A quarter spool of the 80 pound mono will last the whole season and is very economical when compared to commercially prepared leaders.

I will fish with eels at night, especially during slack water.

Good Luck
