Rhode Island

This solid 11-pound blackfish was landed on a recent trip with the Frances Fleet.

Fishing reports for the past few weeks have had an abundance of schoolie striped bass chasing bait all along Rhode Island’s beaches. So far there has been no sign of the steady stream of bait and striped bass slowing down so we could see the bite continue through much of November. There were even reports of gannets off of the beaches this past week which could mean that we will see herring moving along the beaches with some bigger bass on them in the coming weeks.

The wind hasn’t given boat fishermen many opportunities to get out recently, but when conditions have allowed the tautog fishing has been very good. With more wind in store for this week the best bet is to keep an eye on the forecast and get out for some tautog fishing whenever conditions allow for it. Protected waters up in the Bay or behind Fishers Island might be worth a look if conditions out front are too rough.
