LOVE THAT DIRTY WATER

Posted By Dave Anderson, September 25, 2017

It’s funny how the effects of dirty water are felt differently in different locations even though we’re all fishing for the same fish! The Canal shut right down after a quick flare-up before Jose blew angrily past. My local haunts were rendered fishless after the storm. But then you move down to South County and it was a big surf and dirty water bonanza for bass into the mid 20-pound class. The albies seem to be holding on just fine too, many anglers reported seeing them inside Narragansett and Mt. Hope Bays—as much as 12 miles inland. I guess they followed the bait and weathered the storm up there. Let’s all take a moment to pray that Maria heads out into the deep Atlantic and doesn’t churn things up too much. It’s go time!

Owenstrong Update
After three days of competition, there were only a handful of fish entered into the event. Storm seas and coffee milk water made fishing tough, even for the Canal crews. The best catches seem to be trending toward South County and Long Island Sound. All fish entered this week were over the 40-inch mark and one, caught by Brian DiMento, stretched to the 50-inch mark!
