CHUNKIN’

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
Fishing chunks is not for everyone, but there is simply no denying that it can be extremely productive. With fish on the move as they are right now, fishing a stretch of shoreline with some fresh chunks of mackerel or bunker is most certain to yield some fish. And if ...

ALBIE ACTION

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Rhode Island
There are still false albacore being caught all across Southern New England, but Rhode Island remains quite consistent with fish being landed both from shore and by boat. This week saw some slightly picky fish at times, but that said once a school of cooperative fish was found the action ...

BREACHWAY ETIQUETTE

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
Leading into the weekend I took a run to one of the Rhode Island breachways for an evening tide. The winds lined up nicely, and with all the fish around I figured it was a good call. And while my score for the night of a pair of high-teen bass ...

FINALLY SOME BLUES

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
If you’ve been paying attention this year, then you likely noticed that bluefish have been almost as tough to come by as weakfish. There wasn’t much of a spring run along the South Cape beaches, the summer bite never really kicked in along the RI shore, and bassmen chunking in ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
In case you didn’t get the memo, the fall run is officially in full swing. From north to south across New England, striped bass, bluefish, false albacore and even bonito are being caught from the surf, and it’s not going to last forever. There is a ton of bait inshore, ...

Location: New England Surf
As reported by all of our contacts this week, striped bass and blue fish have been solid in the breachways and outflows of South County. While many surfcasters make a B-Line for the tip of the rocks to drift plugs towards the horizon on a dropping tide, time and time ...

PRE-STORM SUCCESS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
Fall storms are a blessing and a curse to surfcasters in New England. They have the potential to produce some of the best action of the season, but at the same time if they hit just right then they can shut things down faster than you can say, “The blitz ...

BE READY

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
There is no avoiding the fact that we are in the final leg of what has been another strange surf fishing season in Southern New England. Striped bass action has been ok at best (small, isolated hot bites are NOT a sign of a good season), and bluefish have been ...

WATCH FOR SPEEDSTERS

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: New England Surf
Fall speedsters like false albacore, bonito and even king mackerel have been popping up all over the place, and shore-bound anglers are slowly cashing-in on the action with some bones being landed along the Rhody shoreline and out on the Vineyard and Nantucket. While it’s nowhere near an all-out bite ...

BETTER BASSIN’

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Connecticut
It’s still not where things should be, but striped bass fishing was good the past week with decent catches being made off Norwalk, outside the Connecticut River, at The Race and over at Block Island (not CT I know, but plenty of CT-based boats made the run and one even ...
