  1. If you're in Newport, go to Benjamins, order the steamers or mussels, drink the Broth & pretend you're in a trendy hipster noodle bar...
  2. ...or make it yourself.
  3. Went to Yagi Sat night. Thought the broth was bery good but pricey. Boru is a little cheaper. My thoughts on broth for dinner is to get Pho & pay 1/3 the price.
  4. Saw Albies in the East Passage Mon b4 the winds really kicked
  5. If you go on the Rhody Fish Report right now you can see the new Nautica Korkers that were just released
  6. I take this quote as a negative comment towards what transpired in the Graves Point photo. I my mind I see it as a "Cancel Culture" comment. Someone looking @ something that happened well over a hundred years ago in a 2021 mindset. A "Gentleman's" Fishing Club to you means segregated & whites only, I guess. Thats the way it was back then. Rich, powerful white males who were the Titans of Industry fishing along a stretch of coast that not many had access to. Not saying it was right but thats the way it was. Back then, you and I , whether we were black or white, would've been bait men, chummers. I'm OK with that. My blood doesn't run blue. Lets be thankful we have the opportunity to fish these stretches of water.
  7. This guy just canceled the famous Graves Point photo. Incredible!!! The guy who doesn't even know enough to wear korkers when he goes out fishing. Let me ask you a question. If we are going to cancel the history of surf fishing in America when can we cancel the fisherman from parts unknown & their blatant disregard of the law?
  8. I thought you were going to ask if those guys were wearing korkers!!!
  9. Glad I've been concentrating on Toggin' from shore. Haven't seen much surface action while soaking crabs. There was some bait/birds around Tues.
  10. I guess my point is stick to that Ledge they have up there @ the Boat Ramp
  11. Maybe you're a Geologist, who knows, but Hazard Rock & the Avenues are totally different from Brenton Point. Hazard Rock is more like certain sections of Cliff Walk. Brenton Point is adjacent to a shallow water reef system. Cliff Walk & the Avenues have deep drop-offs relatively close to the rocks. There are some sections of the Drive that are closer to deeper water but that is not Brenton Point. Brenton Point proper, if you will, is a shallow water spot. But I'm sure you know that because you're a Geologist.
  12. You need to stick to the Boat Ramp. Ledge @ Brenton Point?
  13. Been Blackfishing from shore since Wed Oct 6. Lots of 14-16" fish with an occasional 5#er. There has been more pods of Chubs than Albies. The Albies show up in small pods every now and again but out in the distance. The Chubs are the only ones coming in close. Lets just say, I havent even brought my Albie rob the last 2 times I've gone. Thats how infrequent the sightings are. Haven't seen any Bass/Blues either. The Pogie boat was out there for a couple of days. I remember last Oct running into massive schools of Pogies with no fish on them @ the mouth of the Sakonnet, so maybe they're around again.
  14. I knew that you were a clown once you asked, "Do I need Korkers?" Thats like asking should I bring my fishing rod?
  15. Is this a serious question?
