Anybody fishing?

Not me yet, but seeing pics of fish from the beach all over NE it seems.

Working in RI lately, so I should probably pack some gear into the R Wagon this week.

FWIW, there is usually a run of them off the West Haven beaches around the middle of this month.

That still happens?

I grew up in West Haven, and many years ago there was a stretch of 4-5 years where you could reliably target them and catch a couple every tide. It was the only place in the state I knew of where you could target them. Then I moved away, haven't been there in a LONG time, I wondered if that fizzled out.

but like an idiot I let her use the new stella, and now she claimed it as hers whenever we fish together...

Fished 3 hours last night in the sleet and pouring rain, it brought back memories of bye gone days when I fished into November, only difference.,back then the fish were bigger and there were more of them, I caught 9 "giants "last night that if laid nose to tail (all 9) I might have made a comercial keeper..the boats staying on the dock until the air temperature reaches 65...enough of this foolishness.
