Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
Tautog fishing has been excellent so far this season and with water temperatures just getting down to around 55 degrees the bite should remain strong for at least a few more weeks. If there has been an upside to be had from the poor weather we’ve been seeing lately, it ...

Location: Rhode Island
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 ...

BIGGER BASS COMING?

Location: Rhode Island
One of the reoccurring themes present in the reports in recent weeks is the lack of large striped bass along Rhode Island’s coast. While the reports for numbers of small fish have been very good this season, just finding a keeper has been a challenge for many anglers. While there ...

It was a tough week of blackfishing across much of Rhode Island thanks in no small part to the almost constant near-gale-force winds seen throughout the week. Those who were able to find protected water and hide from the wind and surf were rewarded with some very good action, however. ...

OCTOBER ALREADY

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
The tenth month of the year is one of my favorites as it offers a wide variety of options for anglers. Shore fishing should be productive throughout the month as striped bass, bluefish and false albacore feed heavily on their migration. Boaters will have even more options as tautog fishing ...

Albie fever is in full swing right now with fish being caught both from shore and by boat from one end of the Ocean State to the other. There is an absolute smorgasbord of small bait including peanuts, silversides and bay anchovies for them to feast on, and the bigger ...

Location: Rhode Island
Fall may not officially start until later this week, but based on the fishing reports the “fall run” has begun. It’s often the bait that makes or breaks fall fishing in Rhode Island, and while making calls for this past week’s reports everyone was impressed with just how much bait ...

BAIT’S BUILDING UP

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
There is a LOT of bait holding up in the ponds of South County right now. An afternoon jaunt to take a look will likely result in finding schools of peanut bunker, silversides, bay anchovies, mullet and other mixed small striper and bluefish feed. By day you can find a ...
