  1. My favorite springtime popper is the Smack It Jr from Stillwater Lures. It is 3 3/4 " long, 3/4 Oz., and rattles. So far I cannot find any at any tackle shop or online. Anyone have an idea of a popper that is similar that they found very productive?

  3. Saw an Osprey today - twice at the same location. The cell phone tower by the Seekonk Home Depot parking lot. Saw him again circling by the new AAA building next to the Runnins River on Mink road.
  4. Every time it gets above 90 in the summer, every network has a story on Climate Change. And my great Senator Sheldon Whitehouse goes to the Senate floor and gives a one hour speech on Climate Change, and how we are all going to die in 10 years. So now that we have record cold, and predictions that it will hang around for two weeks. Where are the Climate Change stories ? I guess it just does not match the narrative. Don't worry Summer is around the corner so we can continue the fake news.
  5. Light blue Pogy Boat today off of Colt Park sucking up all the pogies. Same one as earlier in the week. I guess the idea is to set up a line in the middle of the bay so the schools can't make it up into the upper bay where they are not permitted to fish. Maybe next year they should just put a big net between Colt Park and Rocky Point and stop all of them from getting into the upper Bay.
  6. Pogy boat out off of Rocky Point today sucking up all the pogies. Light Blue "B"
  7. Just to let everyone know if last year you used Ch. 24 on Narraganset Bay to do the automated radio check with Sea Tow. This year it is not working that well. Their antenna was damaged during a winter storm and they put a new one up at a different location. The new antenna does not work as well as the old one. After buying and installing a new antenna on my boat, I discovered everyone else is having the same problems with their radio's also. Its not your radio, its Sea Tow's antenna.I use to get a good strong signal from Riverside, now it does not trigger the automated radio check, you get nothing repeated to you. I tried two of my friends radios with the same results. I contacted Sea Tow that is how I found out about the new antenna. They know about they are having receiving problems. DONT GO BUY A NEW RADIO OR ANTENNA. Try a test with a friend who has a boat.
  8. Four ospreys were circling the nest at Barrington High School nest on the light tower. There is not much left of the nest, they have alot of work to do.
  9. Question, Has anyone ever used minnows or killiefish for stripers? I know of a few bait guys that put 3 or 4 grass shrimp on a hook, and let them drift with some good success in the spring, for stripers. Would the same work with minnows or killifish ? Anyone heard of this ?

  11. Question : Getting a slip this year. Comes with 30 Amp service plug on dock. How do I use the dock service to run a buffer or other electric tool ? I do not have a power panel on the boat. Can I use a 30 Amp Male plug wired to a regular 3 prong Female extension cord ? Or will I blow up my tools ?
  12. Just to let you know: RI House Bill # 5584 was introduced by R I House Rep. Gallison (Bristol Rep.). To make the R.I Saltwater fishing license FREE. He is following New York and New Jersey. You still would have to get a license but it would be free. Please write a email to your local Rep and ask them to support his bill. The DEM director already said he does not have the manpower to do the surveys, so why are we paying for the License !!! If you want to read the bill its on the General Assembly web site : google it. New York's license was ruled illegal by the NY Superior Court in December 2010 so they are finally smartening up. The license fee in NY was suspended for Two years so far. So write your Rep. and lets do the same thing here !
  13. I have a 6 year old 90 HP Yami. They can have real issues with the carbs getting dirty. Mine started with ethenol. I now have a 10 Micron fuel filter , that I change twice a season. The parts in the carb are real small so they are suseptable to getting clogged up. I already had mine cleaned by the dealer twice. The last time I did some research online. The guys running the Yami Quads ATV's also have the same problems. They suggested, and it worked to run Gumout in the fuel. Use double the recommended rate. I called Gumout and they said doubling would not cause any problems, and had done testing. Just dont triple it. It worked for me. It does take time to do the cleaning. Keep fuel in the carb so it will work on it. Every day or so go out and squeeze the fuel bulb. After running it a couple of hours you will notice it will run smoother and smoother. After about three hours it was like new, without having the pull the carbs and physically clean them. I now run gumout all the time in my fuel at the regular rate to keep the carbs clean. I am sure you could use another brand of carb cleaner with the same effect. Try this first it worked for me !
  14. Anyone ever used night crawlers for striper's? I have heard that they can be used. I can see why, they do look like a blood worm. I have alot of them at my home. Always wondered if they would work ? Anyone can help me out.
  15. Last year I posted how the RI Attorney General should oppose and file suit against the Saltwater license. And that some New York towns already have. Well guess what they won!!!!! In the NY Supreme Court. See NY NEWSDAY story below: Towns win fishing license suit against state Originally published: December 15, 2010 10:12 PM By ZACHARY R. DOWDY zachary.dowdy@newsday.com Seven Long Island towns have won a lawsuit against the state Department of Conservation preventing the agency from requiring that recreational anglers obtain a saltwater fishing license to fish town waters. The decision by State Supreme Court Justice Patrick A. Sweeney follows a one-day trial last month, in which the towns contested a law that required any angler older than 16 to get the $10 license. The law, which took effect in October 2009, was designed in part to enable the collection of statistical data for the federal government. The towns of East Hampton, Southampton, Shelter Island, Brookhaven, Southold, Huntington and Oyster Bay opposed the law arguing it encroached on their pre-existing authority to regulate town waters - patent rights the towns have enjoyed since the colonial era. Sweeney's decision said those rights give the towns full control over their fisheries. "Concerning the issuance of a saltwater fishing license, the statute as applied to the respective plaintiffs is in violation of the rights of the people of the respective Towns and may not be enforced upon those who seek to fish in the waters regulated by the respective towns," read the decision. "This was a tax, nothing more than a tax," said Joseph Lombardo, assistant town attorney for Southampton, which led the effort. "We allow people to go shellfishing for free. We don't charge you if you're a resident. We've never made people get a fishing license to go saltwater fishing. These are rights that we have to protect." A spokesman for the DEC declined to comment. Lombardo said Sweeney's decision may apply only to the seven towns that mounted the lawsuit because the constitutionality of the law itself wasn't challenged. He said the towns in the lawsuit obtained an injunction from the fees for the duration of the dispute and that they will not be required to obey the law unless the decision is overturned on appeal.
