If you squint your eyes and tilt your head to the side just enough while looking to the eastern horizon, then you might be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel; that is to say, we’re in the home stretch of the 2017-2018 winter season. But, as you likely already know full well, we have yet another nor’easter barreling down on New England this week. This is the third such storm in less than 2 weeks and is hopefully not a sign of the season ahead. As much as I am a fan of the occasional big storm shaking things up here and there, a constant barrage of weather isn’t good for anyone.

For perhaps the third week in a row, there isn’t much “new” to report. Holdover stripers are still a solid bet in all of the tidal rivers. I spoke to a good number of fishermen in Rhode Island this past weekend who report getting both quality and quantity in rivers other than the Housy, so breaking away from the crowds right now might be a good idea. To our south they’re already getting some bass in the salt so things should only improve up our way in the coming weeks. I also got word over the weekend of a few white perch being landed locally, but that is still a little early in my book to really go all in.

My very first fish. Not a monster, but It's a start. Caught and released this guy at Highland Lake while fishing with my buddy Ryan.
