BOTTOM FISHING OPTIONS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
From haddock to flounder, the bottom fishing bite is still very good across the Gulf of Maine and State waters. Moat all of the local harbors have flounder in them with good catches being made. Few full limits were reported this week, but action was steady across the fleet. Heading ...

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 ...

FINE FLUKING, FINALLY

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
With this coming weekend’s Fluke Til Ya Puke tournament set to take over the South Shore of Rhode Island, it is fitting that this week’s fishing reports are dominated by big fluke! After starting off hot, and then going slow, the fishing has more than made up for the slow-down ...

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, ...

SEASON’S FIRST HALIBUT

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
That’s right, the first halibut of the season was decked this week aboard the Yankee Fleet when a 41-pound doormat was caught on the first 2-night trip of the season. While halibut are not quite as common of a catch as they were years ago, each season sees a few ...

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 ...

FLOUNDERIN’S IMPROVIN’

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
Winter flounder action continues to improve in pretty much all of the harbors of the north and south shore. Clear, sunny days have produced the most consistent action as the fish are here and just need an excuse to feed. When the weather goes cloudy or windy, the bite has ...

WORM WAYS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
This week’s full moon should see more worm “hatches” in the South Shore ponds. They’re not really hatches, but instead spawning activity by the cinder worm. These small, 2- to 5- inch worms can be seen at times by the hundreds of thousands frolicking in the calm pond waters, and ...

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 ...
