Elvis has left the building!

It had to happen.  After the entire month of October up through last weekend slammin' stripers every trip out, today we drew a blank.  A launch temp of 48 degrees at the mouth of the CT River foreshadowed things to come, but the abundance of bunker game us hope of one more day to play in the salt. This was it for me either way, as the next few weeks will be steelhead and pike trips.  Rich from Madkey Lures (http://madkeylures.com) filled the baitwell with one cast of the net and we were off to fish. We hit up spots that had been producing like clockwork without a whiff of a fish.  The temps have really been plummeting, and the fish that have been hanging around look to have finally packed it in. There may be some sporadic stuff here and there, but after fishing the incoming tide, we called it EARLY.The RI coast will likely provide some late season action, as the last of the cows follow the sea herring south. The early week looks favorable with mild SW winds forecasted, so if you're lucky enough to have the time and the means, head south to Montauk.
