Thats big mouth! :howdy: Nice work

Thanks! I fished the days around the moon very hard and was happy it paid off. Being a zombie at work is worth it!

Weak tide and no wind = tough fishing. Nothing out front, found some fish in the back but they were super picky. More short hits then hook ups.  With no wind the No See Ums were out in force, no amount of bug spray was keeping them at bay.  They will drive you insane after awhile. First time this year i have had to deal with them.

 

In comparison to previous years, i am seeing way less bait in spots then i would have expected.  Maybe things are still behind but a little concerning as there doesnt seem to be much to keep bass in place versus just moving on.

 

Also stopped at a few spots before dark just to observe and the Fish trap is back in a certain fishing area. I know this is legal, but it is really frustrating that it is allowed to be placed basically right in front of a designated fishing area.  It just doesnt seem right, there are miles of shoreline.  Birds were working the trap hard so something was in there.

I was there (jetty?) few weeks ago and it was there already. Caught nothing besides searobin....... then saw the boat hauled up a boat load of scups.

 

When do they take back the net? I don't see it often deployed there.

Nope this is off the gansett shore line and not by a wall. They usually haul them for the year in late sept/early Oct i think it depends on when they hit their quota.

If it's the same place I"m thinking of, it's anchored right to the jetty...very frustrating

I didn’t get out but my boys did. Same spot I been pounding. Good amount of 25-27” fish consistently and some slots mixed in. The 20lb+ fish seem to hit as the water slowed down.

We were averaging five bluefish to every striper. Biggest striper 27 inches.

The bite was pretty consistent without any long delay for an eight hour trip.

The bite at the North Rip wasn't bad, not as good as other mornings.

The trollers put a lot of fish down on the surface. More bluefish than stripers.

There was one seal playing around at the Southwest corner. 

Scattered sand eels, not much dense concentration, but the terns were in the air pointing them out.

Fished for a couple of hours Wednesday night in Narragansett hit two spots one with a jetty….typical night fishing for me lost a lure and caught about 25lbs of seaweed.  Heading back out tonight hoping to catch 50lbs of seaweed and lose 2 lures….lol….I just want a couple of fish I’m not greedy…a keeper would be nice.
