    Mike Wade at Watch Hill Outfitters in Westerly says it's about done for albies for the season even though a few have been rumored to be in the Watch Hill area. There is still a good amount of small bait in the surf, as has been the case since early summer, and it is holding small bass and blues tight to shore. Now word of any big bass this week as the catch has been mostly schoolies.

    Watch Hill Outfitters in Westerly reports much of the same this week as last with some fluke being caught on jigs inside the breachways and back ponds, and loads of c=scup being taken off the rockier shore spots like Watch Hill. Bassing has been so-so with some smaller fish caught in the breachways at night. Bonito are in the area and their mixing with schools of chub mackerel.

    Harrison passed along the report this week Watch Hill Outfitters in Westerly, and he reports that there are some keeper fluke to be had off East Beach if you're willing to work thought the shorts and sea robins. You can also get some jigging the breachway channels and inside the ponds. Porgy fishing remains very good at the Lighthouse as well as off the ends of the breachways. Striper fishing is in a summer pattern of small fish but lots of them at places like Watch Hill and in the breachways. Doug had a bunch of bass to about 25 inches on Wednesday and Harrison added another 15 or so on Thursday evening. Last up, reports of bonito have begun to circulate—some even coming in with photo support—as a few have been landed at Charlestown from shore and around Watch Hill by boat.

    According to Watch Hill Outfitters in Westerly, scupporgy fishing along South County remains very good. Anglers are doing well from the breachways as well as down at the Lighthouse with lots of keepers being reported. You can expect some small sea bass and fluke as well, with keepers on those two somewhat rare out front. Bass-wise it remains the same as it has been the last few weeks with schoolies on up to 30–inch fish at night.
