THE FALL RUN IS ON

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
From sharks to cod to stripers, pretty much everything was on the feed this past week off the Rhode Island coast. Once the inshore waters cleaned up after the passing of the recent storms, the porgies put on a major feed with a load of 2- and 3-plus-pound fish being ...

BEST BASSING

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
Stripers and sea bass dominated this week’s reports, and while sea bass are not technically a bass, we like them just the same! As expected with the new moon this Monday (the same day as the eclipse) striper fishing got better as each day passed. Block is the epicenter of ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
As I made my report calls last week, I started to get word of a couple “odd mackerel” popping up off Watch Hill. At first it was one here or there, but as the week progressed on into this weekend’s report calls it turned into blitz conditions at times from ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
I had to decline an invite to head to Coxes this past week for cod, and I was regretting it from the moment I had to call the captain as I knew full-well that they would load up—and boy was I right! There has been an excellent bite out there ...

Location: New England Surf
Here we are squarely in the 8th month, and that’s just fine by me. Many anglers hate this time of the year, crying the woes of the “Summer Doldrums,” but not me! I love, love, love this time of the surf season. By now in a normal season the fish ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
Block Island “went off” this past week with a pile of large striped bass boated around Southwest Ledge. Both day and night anglers loaded up on fish from 10 to the mid 50-pound class with lots of 20s and 30s reported. Word spread pretty quick as to the hot action ...

FLUKE SLAM

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
As I made my calls this week, most reporters started of by talking of the awesome fluke fishing. Capt. Tony of Booked Off Charters for example, began with, “We already have three fish over 9 pounds in the cooler!” This was before 10 AM so his charter still had a ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
Yeah, yeah, we’ve been saying it for a while now; the bass have to show up at some point. Well, it looks like the fish finally got the memo as a large body of 30-, 40 and even 50-pound class stripers settled into the waters of Southwest Ledge sometime around ...

Location: Rhode Island
If you haven’t done so yet, now is the time to land your first striped bass of the season. Grab some small bucktails and teasers, bend the barbs and fish anywhere from the Pawcatuck River to the West Wall.

The annual South County, RI ritual of targeting small to medium bass ...
