Cod Crush

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
Mother Nature finally took it easy on the cod boats and the fishing was downright fantastic off Block Island! Pretty much everyone got out Saturday and Sunday with quite a few looking to extend the action into the week. Lots of limit catches were reported and both fresh-shucked clams and ...

Fresh Is Best

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
I hate to keep saying it, but most of the eastern part of Massachusetts remains stuck in-between fishable ice and open water. There are some highlights nonetheless as Red Top weighed-in a pair of state-pin crappie early in the week by a pair of anglers who found some hard water ...

Open-Water Options

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
"Head west" they're saying if you need to scratch the ice fishing itch! Locally there is little to no fishable ice to speak of s the roller coaster of weather and air temperatures is melting the ice just as fast as it's being built. This is keeping open-water option in ...

Panfish & Pike Pleasing

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Connecticut
Despite no real widespread safe ice across the state, anglers willing to travel north are finding both hard water and cooperative fish. Panfishing has been lights-out for anglers fishing with ultra-tiny jigs, and fishers hanging the largest of live and dead baits below tip-ups are reporting steady flags on a ...

Cod Keepin' On

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
Prior to losing most of the weekend to winter weather, when boats got out on the cod grounds the reports came in pretty good with fish to the 20-pound class being caught. All accounts are of large schools of bait still being found there as well so if we could ...

Pike Producing

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Connecticut
Connecticut pike anglers have been doing well lately on fish fast-approaching the 40-inch mark at a few local hardwater hotspots. There is more widespread ice in the northwest corner of the state, as expected, and those heading out have been reporting solid action. Holdover striper action along the cost is ...

Trying for Trout

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
The irony of too much ice but not enough ice plagues the area as safe, fishable ice is scarcer than a winter cod from shore but finding open water to wet a line is proving just as difficult. There have been scattered reports of holdover schoolie bass as well as ...

Waiting on Ice

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: South Shore Mass. to Maine
Locally it's much of the same as recent weeks with the majority of anglers either hunkering down to wait out the winter or chomping at the bit for safe ice to form. You can try your luck for trout in the Plymouth area if you can find an open lake ...

Christmas Cod

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
The excellent cod fishing around Block Island continued this past week, but weather remained a limiting factor as to when the boats could hit the grounds. Some boats only got out once with a few making two and even three trips last week, but overall they found very good results ...

Pre-Holiday Bassing

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Connecticut
The erratic New England weather pattern is making jigging up some fresh sea herring in the western Sound an inconsistent proposition of late. Steady, cold weather usually helps the bite, but that isn't what we're seeing and the bite has suffered. They're doing quite well on the herring on the ...
