Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
 If you read last week’s report you may remember that I was thinking about getting out for opening day or trout season. The opening day tradition is something that I had ignored in recent years due to crowds and a lack of time, but I’m happy to report that I ...

NOVEMBER, REALLY?

Posted By John Hanecak
Location: Rhode Island
 Following another October weekend of shorts and tee-shirt weather, it’s hard to believe that we actually already creeping up on the month of November. We still have tons of false albacore around, and the tautog bite, which should be in full swing, is just starting to get going. I was ...

TRYING FOR TOG
