COD & TOG

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
With blackfish season closing December 6 in Connecticut and December 15 in Rhode Island, the bite is finally making up for a rather slow start as a load of fish from 8 to 16-plus pounds were caught over the weekend. That big fish—16.75 pounds to be exact—was landed in Connecticut ...

LOTS OF OPTIONS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England
We are in a somewhat odd time of the saltwater season where there are still plenty of fish to be caught, but the excuses to forego that next outing keep piling up. The best trick that I can come up when debating heading out for another trip is to think ...

GRINDING ON GROUNDFISH

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
 With mostly small schoolie bass still hanging around, and some tuna to be found at Stellwagen, the best shot going into the Holiday week would be for some ground fishing in the Gulf of Maine as the action for pollock, redfish and haddock has been very good when Mother Nature ...

TACKLING TOG

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
 From the west end of the Canal and on out through Buzzards Bay past the islands, blackfish/tautog remain king. The bite is still pretty good in shallow, but it is moving deeper and some nice market-sized cod have begun to filter into the catch. Keep in mind that the 2017 ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
 With haddock season reopening in the Gulf of Maine, another fall favorite is back on the table for anglers north of the Cape. Early reports have been quite good for the boats that were able to sail this week as Mother Nature didn’t always play nice. There are still small ...

OPTIONS A PLENTY

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
 Whether you prefer freshwater or salt, the surf of offshore, there is a lot to do this week around the Cape. Freshwater fishing is excellent right now for trout as they prefer the cooling waters. Some big browns are being landed on the Cape to go along with the rainbows ...

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 ...

MACKEREL MYSTERY SOLVED

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 ...

CRUSHING COD

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 ...
