Default NE Saltwater Withdrawel Symptoms

Ok it's late fall and something is missing! I realize Sandy devastated a whole bunch of our beaches and fishing spots but somebody must be getting something! Stripers? Blues ? Weakies? I'd be happy to see a pic of some Herring or Shad! Is anyone getting out? Swirl? Rip? You guys from RI and Maine?
Need something to get the juiced flowing! I'll settle for a White Perch or Porgy pic! Albies? Cod or Pollack?
I know somebody in the NE is catching please feed my addiction!
Thank you.

Sea Robin or Tommy Cod would suffice!

We got stripers here. There's a school that over winters in the Thames River about a 1/2 hour from my house.
Numbers are way down of course.
Normally they pack in thick and close from the harbor in Norwich down to around the Mohegan Sun Casino. About a mile distance.
One report that I read said that with the warm water after the storm there was fast fishing for dink schoolies 14"-18"
People get all bundled up and fish for them at night. Too cold for me.
In the spring when the water hits 52* (something like that) the school breaks up and all hell breaks loose on the sunny flats. That's more my style

The first place I ever caught a Striper was in the Thames. From the docks at the Submarine base in Groton. That was where I caught my first Bluefish also. It was fun fishing there.

First time I saw that submarine docked in Groton I was in awe! Never realized how big these vessels are and didn't think the LI Sound was deep enough for them to maneuver ! Must have been some experience for you!
