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 for ease of viewing. 

This is the second year trying this approach of a journal . I think last year had great participation. 

Now it's up to you to post your success or skunks.   Either way let us know. It all helps us to be informed.  

There is some bait starting to stage in pockets along the ocean front. Some mackerel keeping boaters happy. More signs of bluefish mixed with mac plus much more bonito.  

Keep those reports coming, good or bad. We'd like to hear.

Lots of blues around in the upper bay. Endless blitz all day but sporadic and spotty due to movement of bait. Constantly making circles around the same general area but fun if you just want some light tackle fun

The blues were at the mouth of the bay too...non-stop catching from my kayak until the boats showed up and the wind picked up.

Since I started to focus on bonito in the past two weeks, my fish numbers have taken a big nose dive - in 5 trips to the spot I fish, I've caught two bonito, two schoolie striped bass, two small (as in 2 lbs or less) bluefish, plus one fluke, one seabass, one scup and one sea robin (all taken on various jigs bounced off the bottom)...but despite the poor numbers, still worth it to me

Every once in a while I do a party boat for **** and giggles. I barely lost the pot, which I call BS on due to the seesaw scale on a rocking boat but no hard feelings. Mine’s on the left. I had 2 other decent fish that night and a few good fish later last week from shore as well.

Walked into a blitz at sunset all bass up to 26/27” . Double headers were common they were everywhere. Bite slowed after dark but was still a constant pick of fish. Fall Run is underway, mid August so right on schedule for those who follow the yearly patterns closely.  Now I need albies to show up so everyone focuses on them.

I thought they already did. Someone caught one in the canal this morning.
