Details:Headed out this morning just before 1st light. After checking a favorite rockpile outside Niantic Bay, motored due south to Little Gull. Af few birds were working in the rip. Started casting gray/white flatwing Deceiver on sinking line around the rocks out front of the Island. Quickly hooked up with a 29 inch striper full of sealice. For the next 30 minutes or so, action was consistent with fish ranging from 24 to 32 inches. Switched up occasionally to an intermediate rod when the bird activity increased with zero success. All fish hooked were down in the rocks between 5 and 10 feet of water. Two top flies were the previously mentioned flat wing and a platinum blonde. Both flies were 2/0.

On the way back found some surface activity southeast of the Bartlett Tower. Lost two flies to bluefish that were doing their thing on the surface. The mini blitz lasted only a few minutes as the Orient Point ferry was steaming our way.

Sea conditions were flat with no wind. Water temperature at Little Gull was 57 degrees.
