CANAL MELEE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
I knew this past week was going to be good for local surf fishing. Not because I have some 6th sense of fishing, and not so much because I poured over past reports and logbooks, but because I was down in Florida all week for work attending ICAST 2018. In ...

WHERE ARE THE BLUES?

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
I’ve written about it before, but bluefish simply do not get the respect which they deserve. They’ve saved more than a few trips for me when the striped bass forgot to come out to play, and pound-for-pound they fight harder than any striped bass I have ever caught. It has ...

SHORE-THING FLUKE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
A few weeks ago I spoke of the mighty porgy, this week I will touch upon the fluke or summer flounder. After spending a day with the family over the weekend casting small Spro and Mustad jigs from the Rhode Island beaches to hungry fluke feeding below swarms of sand ...

THE FULL MOON

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
I love/hate the full moon in the surf. While on the one hand I have landed some of my biggest surf-caught bass under a full moon, every single one of those big bass nights also coincided with some weather and heavy cloud cover; give me some rain and all the ...

PORGIES FOR SHORE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
Since I’ve been striking out on my weekly predictions and advice on stripers of late, today I’m going with the simple-yet-fun summertime tactic of targeting scup/porgies from shore. There are a thousand spots from the Canal to the New York border where one can put together a solid catch of ...

JUNE NEW MOON

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
This Wednesday is the new moon of June, a fabled phase of the moon that traditionally produces large striped bass in the surf up and down the striper coast. For me it also marks the beginning of the transition from spring fish on the move to summer resident fish. But, ...

THE BAIT QUANDRY

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
 There were some glimmers of hope in this week’s report including a 47-pound bass from the Connecticut shore and the first shot of “easy fishing” in the Canal, but anywhere I got word of good action on striped bass there was a common theme: bait. Now this is not some ...

1-HIT FISHING

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
In the spring you can fish two ways: target a schoolie spot for loads of small bites or hit a cow spot and hope for that one, lone hit of the night (or week.) I’ve been doing the latter all spring, and while my results are way of from many ...

GET OUT NOW

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
I don’t know how many times I can say it, but if you’re still waiting for an excuse to get out and hit the surf then you’ve already missed some fish. This past week saw a big shot of bass and bluefish throughout the region with the first super cow ...

MAY MOON MADNESS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
If you didn’t have the new moon coming up this week marked on your calendar some time ago, then you might not be following along very closely. While many keep saying the bite is behind schedule, I have found that regardless of the naysayers, the first moon that falls around ...
