Wish You Were Here: Fishing on Blues Dory, Long Island Sound
by Owen James Burke
Summer’s end on Long Island Sound is idyllic; the fishing turns on again after the midsummer heat sends fish out into the cooler Atlantic and water temperatures are still hovering around 75 degrees fahrenheit. A lull in the bite while testing rods and reels for The Wirecutter allowed for a late afternoon swim when the wind died and the sun began to set.
Later along in the evening, the bite turned back on and fish were caught.
This lucky bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix) lived to swim another day.
