Hi I'm fairly new to this sight but I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips or spots on porgy fishing from the Westbrook area or within 15 miles or so I have a kayak and have gone a couple times with lil success since there seem to be no bass or blues around thought I'd try fishing these thanks to any who reply Steve

i would suggest using sandworms and squid pieces on a porgy rig. Thats pretty much all you catch them on.
Bad fish! Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycod. This shark, swallow ya whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', down you go.

I have used Gulp clams cut into 1/4" X 1" strips on #6 hooks, with great success. Garden worms/ night crawlers, strips of mackerel, squid, all work really good too.

As for where to fish 'em; just about anywhere there are rocks in 10 to 40 feet of water.
You can also hang a chum bag full of clam chum (or just about anything crushed muscles work great!) from your yak.

Good luck.
Fish today; tomorrow is not guaranteed.
