Bad weather, so-so fishing for the past ten days....

Norwalk Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report
We've been dealing with high winds and rough waters for the past several trips, so we've had to stay close to shore. Our passengers have caught keeper sea bass, some fluke and porgies and the occasional bluefish (sometimes on the surface.) We've seen schools of false albacore, but no hook-ups.
The dearth of porgies, bluefish, and striped bass has been quite a disappointment thus far this season, but we're hoping to see more blues and stripers as the migration begins later this fall.
What we do have is plenty of SEA ROBINS! These spiny prehistoric critters are getting bigger than ever before, and they're everywhere, stealing bait--but providing lots of entertainment for the youngsters who've been aboard My Bonnie.
News has been spreading of some humpback whales in our area; boaters have been warned to give them a wide berth.
