Stripers continue to dominate the fishing scene along the Island's South Shore.

Very little has changed this week as sea bass, porgies and cod continue please anglers making the run to Block Island, while tog anglers continue to hang their hats on Fishers Island or the Rhody Coast.

The striped bass run along the Island’s South Shore and West End shows no sign of letting up, except for small fish dominating the action now on most days. This weekend also saw several cod up to 20 pounds reported by anglers jigging for stripers out of Fire Island Inlet, a possible sign that there could be some open bottom cod action in the weeks ahead, something that has been missing from the scene for a long time. Offshore wreck trips continue to produce jumbo sea bass, along with porgies and some cod, while inshore pieces and reefs are surrendering a mix of quality tog and shorts.

There is no shortage of small stripers in the Sound, while the best blackfish scores are now coming from deeper water haunts. Squid are still hanging in the harbors also several sources thought their numbers may have slipped this past week.
Caption. The South Shore striper run continues unabated.
