  1. This fish report blog was created as a communal gathering place to share and report weekly fishing activity that could benefit those you use the RI forum. The purpose is to blend together all reports in a portal so they are easy to access into one file. There's been so much good input shared here. Thanks for your contributions.
  2. You're not going to find many at all. Maybe New Harbor Channel on an outgoing. If you're vacationing fine, that's your best bet or only option. If you intent is to fish, I'd try the mainland shore instead.
  3. Just to show how bad these albies are this season, I know of three fly rods snapped already. And these are seasoned fly rodders with a ton of experience catching hardtails.
  4. All aboard the Albie Train! Thursday was the day the hardtails finally hit Rhode Island in all the tradition spots. Newport all ready had a slug of them, now they are all along the coast in numbers. Point Jude, Charlestown, Watch Hill, Fishers, it's all going off now. Finally they have appeared and are jumbos. Like always, if you're there the first day, it's easy. They haven't been educated by boaters. Doubles all over the place. Now's the time to pick up that fly rod. Also some nice 5-10 lbs. stripers mixed in too.
  5. Mix of albies and stripers today. Flies did the trick. Lot's of ambient noise and waves from moving water really turns them on. Only one place in RI with consistent sightings. Solve the riddle. You have to bridge the gap and pay the toll and you will find them.
  6. Spent yesterday morning chasing albies off Newport with clients. It's been the only reported place where they have shown up this season. It's a small slug of fish, move often, up and down real quick. You know the drill? Maybe a half dozen caught/boated all morning. Spin casters have had the advantage with metal. Not a striper of bluefish to be found.
  7. I've seen many leatherbacks over the years, especially this time of year migrating. Haven't seen any recently though. I seen a few dead ones caught in fish traps all tangled up.
  8. Boat trip Saturday morning produced lots of harbor bluefish, no stripers, no albie/bonito sightings. We motored from Wickford around Jamestown, shot up the east side. We did see some action of keep stripers south of house on the rocks, but got there too late. That was the only sign of birds and baitfish on the ocean front all morning. Water color was an emerald green, deep in color, a long texture from sea green. Didn't see a game fish caught all morning. Ventured back into the bay, all the cocktail bluefish you wanted south of Wickford.

  10. Watched a few hardy surf fishermen nailing some schoolies today in the high surf. Locations into the wind seemed best. Rocky areas seem to be clean of weed.
  11. The slam! Awesome time.
  12. Are you willing to get wet, brave the elements to get your hands on some stripers? Low pressure weather systems will do that. Nothing stimulates the sea like a good water mix. Storm_Stripers.wmv

  14. Lights! When I'd fish in Wickford, Quonset Point, I'd radioed incoming planes to shut their head lights off.
