View Full Version : Castle Island Report - 08/11/01

Went to castle island Saturday from 6:45 to 9:00pm. Not much fishermen around. Got a nice fat 25-26 incher on a Chartreuse and White clouser at 7:10. I was dead drifting at the first culvert and already had quite a lot of line out. The fellow took me to the backing and gave me a nice fight using the strong current to try to escape. I then got a tiny striper at 7:40 and that was it for the day.
Also there was a big feeding going on 3 to 400 yards in front of me. Birds were diving big time in the water for 45 minutes. As soon as the sun disapeared the feeding stopped. I can't understand why no boats rushed to the area to take a few fish. I saw a fish crashing on the bay side so I gave it a shot at dark but without success. The bay was like a mirror. A Gurgler may have been a good pick. Can't wait to fight the blues everybody is talking about.
