Best dates for fishing RI surf

Rate this topic

I usually surf fish the DE shore or travel to Hatteras, but I have relatives who now live in the Watch Hill/Westerly area. What would be the best time to visit them for good fishing from the beach? Ideal would be a time when plenty of fish, good chance for stripers of size, and weather that's a pleasure to fish in. I know none of you has a crystal ball but what months/times of those months gives me the best shot at this?

And what are the regs about driving on the beach? Where is that doable near where I am going, and would I need a special license to take my Jeep on the beach?

Any local bait and tackles you would recommend? A few years ago, I fished there in the summer and used Covedge, but I understand they went out of business.

Thanks much.

You'll be able to find fish anytime from mid-April through early Dec.For beach driving,and quantity fishing,try mid Sept.I think it'll cost you $150 to put your vehicle on the beach,plus the must have items.Let us know when you're coming,someone will hook you up.wink.gif
