Bass bite out front around the island and up in the bay has been great this past week with some aggressive surface feeding going on at times. The bass are chasing sand eels, bunker, and squid. There has also been good action for bass back in the salt ponds and there has been a few small hatches this week. Bass in the salt ponds have been pretty finicky but customers are still able to get some by switching to smaller profile baits or throwing eels in the evening. There are still some big bluefish around, especially around Point Judith and the Breachways. As spring turns to summer we usually see their numbers drop but maybe they want to stick around a bit longer this year. Fluke fishing is a hit or miss definitely picking up but the action is spotty with some anglers doing very well and others still struggling to find the fish. The best reports for fluke seem to be coming from 40-plus feet of water. Scup are starting to show up in better numbers and there were reports of a few black sea bass caught last week.
