Location: Rhode Island
This week’s full moon should see more worm “hatches” in the South Shore ponds. They’re not really hatches, but instead spawning activity by the cinder worm. These small, 2- to 5- inch worms can be seen at times by the hundreds of thousands frolicking in the calm pond waters, and ...

Posted By Toby Lapinski
Location: Cape Cod & The Islands
Reports began filtering in this week of squid being caught throughout Buzzards Bay. The squid boats were the first to find them, as expected, but it wasn’t long after that the rest of us caught up. Spring squidding is a great way to kick-off the season both from shore and ...
