Digging Out

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Connecticut
The beginning of last week started off pretty good for local anglers as ice was forming across much of the state and a lot of the smaller, inland lakes saw safe ice form. However, with the unseasonably warm temperatures that hit us Wednesday, coupled with a foot or more of ...

Join Us In Boston

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
With the weather pattern of late there isn't much fishing going on locally. Most anglers looking to wet a line and bend a rod or pop a flag have to travel a bit to do so. The Cape has open water and the western part of the state and places ...

Snow Holding Us Back

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
The thought of seeing any sort of ice fishing on the Cape or over the Canal to the mainland is a laughable prospect right now, but as we've been telling you there are still fish to be caught. Stripers are being found in the creeks and small harbors of the ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
After what was described as one of the best weeks of cod fishing in recent memory, Mother Nature reversed directions and hit us with a combination of weather that included 50-plus mph winds, over a foot of snow, big seas and otherwise unfishable conditions for a good part of the ...

Boat Show Weekend

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Connecticut
It was more of the same this past week across Connecticut as ice anglers still had to travel well north to find any fishable hard water. Those making a drive to the Litchfield area or even on up into Massachusetts did well on perch, bass, panfish and pike. There was ...

Cod Crush

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
I keep telling you that you need to take advantage of any weather windows as they pop up, and last week was no exception as the cod fishing was - as some described it - historically good. After the better part of a week-plus without being able to sail, Mother ...

Try For Trout

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
All reports from the Cape and either side of the Canal indicate that open-water fishing for the likes of panfish, bass and especially trout is keeping local anglers busy these days. There was even word of some of the smaller tidal creeks of the Cape producing some small holdover stripers ...

Blown Out

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
The last week of cod fishing was lost to strong winds and at times heavy rains thanks to the strong nor'easter that pummeled the fishing grounds. The short-term forecast for the coming week doesn't look too much like Mother Nature is going to cooperate, and likely the boats will stay ...

Cod & Haddock Update

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
Fishing remains about the same this week as we've been seeing for most of the winter: there isn't any fishable ice locally but open-water angling for trout remains a solid bet.

In regulation news, the New England Fishery Management Council submitted the following recommendation to the National Marine Fisheries Service last ...
