Snug Harbor Marina

April 23, 2018:
Elisa at Snug Harbor Marina said that one of her regular customers had stopped in for green crabs on Sunday and was planning on trying for tautog on some of the rock piles off of Charlestown Beach. With water temperatures still in the low 40s it might be a slow trip but you don't know for sure unless you try. Schoolie fishing was pretty good along the wall earlier in the week but seemed to slow down for the weekend. With some warmer days in the forecast this week there is a good chance the bite will pick up this week. Trout fishing is still reported to be very good and is keeping anglers busy until the saltwater fishing heats up. Snug Harbor Marina will be hosting their annual used tackle sale this coming weekend opening at 9am on both Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to stop down for some great deals on new and used tackle.

    Elisa at Snug Harbor Marina said that one of her customers made the run out to Coxes Ledge on Saturday in search of cod but unfortunately they only caught a single sculpin. Not much for inshore reports and with water temperatures just over 40 degrees it may take a few weeks for things to get started. Hopefully we get some warmer weather before fluke season opens up. Some reports of bass being caught in the rivers and there are probably some fish at the west wall. Trout fishing got off to a good start on Saturday with plenty of limits of big fish reported.

    Matt at Snug Harbor Marina said that he hadn't heard of anyone landing a striper from the West Wall yet, but he added that it could happen any day now. There have been reports of holdover striped bass being caught in the Narrow River and in the salt ponds. One customer stopped in to pick up some bait on his way to Charlestown to try for flounder, but he never reported back. The flounder should be starting to get active in the ponds. Not much to report for cod as most of the boats have stopped trying. There is a chance the bite could still happen but it's starting to look like the spring cod fishing season may be a bust. They will be holding their annual used tackle sale the weekend of April 28th and will also start opening daily at 6am that same weekend.

    Elisa at Snug Harbor Marina didn't have much to add to last week's report but said that things should really start to pick up in the next couple of weeks. Schoolie striped bass typically arrive in local waters during the first couple of weeks in April. Some warmer days and a light southwest wind will make for ideal conditions to get out and catch some of the first striped bass of the season. No reports from the cod grounds this past week, but that will hopefully pick up soon as well. They aren't keeping set hours at the shop yet so it's best to call in advance if you are planning on stopping in. They will be holding their annual used tackle sale the weekend of April 28th and will also start opening daily at 6am that same weekend.

    Elisa at Snug Harbor Marina said that it was a low month for the cod boats with the weather presenting few opportunities to get out and generally poor fishing when they were able to sail. There have been gulls working on small bait just off of the beaches which is a good sign as the first migratory striped bass should be hitting the Rhode Island coast in the next couple of weeks. A few customers have reported having some luck targeting holdover striped bass in the rivers and salt ponds, and these fish should start getting more active as the water starts to warm up. They aren't keeping set hours at the shop yet so it's best to call in advance if you are planning on stopping in to pick up some gear. They will be holding their annual used tackle sale the weekend of April 28th and will also start opening daily at 6am that same weekend.
