    Watch Hill Outfitters said that the last cold front took some of the consistency out of the bite but there are still good numbers of schoolies from 12 to 26 inches being caught from the daytime surf between Quonny and Watch Hill. There have been rumors and whispers about bigger fish—up to 20 pounds—coming after dark on eels from the breachways and Watch Hill. Albies seem to be gone at this point.

    Mike over at Watch Hill Outfitters said there was still plenty of action between Weekapaug and Watch Hill. The bulk of the action has been small bass but there are a lot of them. The schoolies are hitting day and night and seem to be taking any small, single-hook offering readily. There have been some bigger bass taken at night on chunks and eels, but these have been few and far between and topping out at about 36 inches. The other big surprise is the continued albie bite. They have been gorging on anchovies and being caught, quite often, from several shore locations. This is the albie year that just won't quit!

    Watch Hill Outfitters said there are lots and lots of small bass running between Weekapaug and Watch Hill. It's been a daytime thing mostly, and the guys at the shop wanted to suggest that people fishing for these small bass should be using single hooks and crushing the barbs—shads and bucktails should be your weapons of choice. Many anglers have reported finding upwards of 20 schoolies dead on the beach, this is unacceptable. These fish are the future of a dwindling fishery and we need to protect them! Guys fishing after dark with eels are scrounging up a few better fish, the biggest of the week was a 30-pounder. Baitfish are everywhere and the albies seem not to care that it's November, neither should you.
