Snug Harbor Marina

October 14, 2019:
Matt at Snug Harbor Marina said that a few folks fished the beaches for bass and albies through the storm, but most people just stayed in. There were folks heading offshore after the big storm, but no reports just yet. Matt is keeping his fingers crossed for another shot or two at canyon tuna before the curtain drops. Matt said that while most locals water have cooled significantly, a nice shot of 70-degree water has pushed into the Dump and may provide that local late-season tuna action that we've been waiting for.

    I caught up with Matt at Snug Harbor Marina nice and early on Sunday morning and he said there was an awesome yellowfin bite a few days earlier out at Hydrographer. The Frances worked that area for a pile pf yellows on jigs as well as a big sword and one lost boatside. Another boat ran out there for 20 yellows, a wahoo bite-off and a good-sized sword, too. Mid-range had some decent makos at the Mud Hole, and a few cod were caught around the southeast corner, but not much reported closer to home. Matt wasn't too optimistic about the coming week's forecast for anyone getting offshore, but if a window pops up the bite has been good so jump on it!

    Matt at Snug Harbor Marina said that sharking picked up again this week. Matt had a keeper mako of 185 pounds hanging from the scale this weekend, that fish taken from the Mud Hole. Matt also mentioned threshers making a showing locally in the general vicinity of the Acid Barge. The only tuna action this week was in the form of 20- to 30-pound bluefin crashing small bait, sometimes mixing-in with the albies and bonito.

    Matt at Snug Harbor Marina told me that when the scallop boats started to filter out of the CIA area, so did the bluefin. Matt still believes that there are a few fish hanging around locally, they just seem to be spread out over a larger area then they were last week. They did have some confirmed bluefin landings south of Block Island around the Shark's Ledge area.

    Matt at Snug Harbor Marina was excited about a very good bluefin bite down around the CIA grounds. Matt said that school bluefin are shadowing the scallop boats working the area, and they are taking chunks readily during daylight hours. Matt said that the canyons haven't had much pressure with the foul weather, but head boats steamed far to the east early in week for some yellowfin to 100 pounds in Hydrographer. Matt added that there are still plenty of sharks around if that is your forte.
