We haven't seen the salt since getting skunked at a reliable June spot about 6 weeks ago. (Edit: I lied. We got fish in RI at the end of June).


We haven't been fishing at all really, chasing snakes and turtles mostly, going off to camp etc, plus weather hasn't been nice. 


We been doing a small amount of sight fishing for cruising carp. The first day I forgot my net.:rolleyes:


My son hasn't been targeting bass much this season but when he does, he finds pigs.


Who's catching in the sweet water?

Haven’t gone bassin much since mid April. 3 trips lol. Been trying the salt. But I’ve legit caught 3 schoolies since June 1st.  
 I went once in early June, got a handful of bass biggest going 3.11lbs. 
Went a few weeks ago early July. Only one dink bass. 

went last week to a spot I haven’t fished in about 5 or 6 years. Got a dozen bass. Mostly dink bass on the whopper plopper. Got smoked on a 15 inch slammer snake. Missed that fish.  I got a 5.13lb fish on my new Real Prey weedless paddle tail. Fish hit after I ripped it through weeds.  My first time usin this new bait.  Pretty stoked.

I've been fishing freshwater this summer more than I have in decades . With the stripers spotty from shore at best I've had a lot of fun drifting around several ponds in my float tube catching fly rod personal best small and largemouth bass , pickerel , and a black crappie that qualified for a state catch and release pin . I'm afraid with the decline of the striper fishery this is something I'll be doing more instead of less .

Has anyone fished the Swift River lately, curious how the crowds have been.  I went a few times during the height of the pandemic and it was insanely crowded
