Epic Fall Blitzes

There was an early Fall epic striper blitzes late Thursday morning and afternoon along a popular Rhode Island South County Beach. There were tremendous amounts of striper’s acres on end, loads of tiny bay anchovy bait balls, and the fish were cooperative. You had to believe it to see it. If you were lucky to be there on the water, it was a most memorable day.  It lasted for hours, moving up and down the shore. They stayed up driving bait for some ten minutes each time. Nothing but stripers with some American shad mixed in. Not one bluefish caught today.

I remember huge bass blitzes in SOCO years ago. First light to sun up. I was easy to get 20-30 # bass a couple of those years during the mullet run. It's good to hear that those blitzes are making a comeback. 

I didn't view the video, but were there any decent bass being landed? :howdy:

Same deal yesterday on a boat running the RI shore.  I've literally not seen that many fish in one place since I used to fish Montauk years ago.  Some a few albies, but up and gone.  But bass everywhere on tiny, tiny bait.  Plus we had a good mix of blues also.

I hope the heck they find their way to Block. It’s been dead for me lately with just a pick. Dreaming of a blitz on fly. Need practice strip setting, even though strip setting on a five pounder is not the same. I’ll take it.
