Fluke reports from this week have been great. Local and Block Island waters have been producing solid catches. More squid and sand eels have entered our area as well. Chartreuse jigs and teasers seem to be working the best for customers. Some customers are still struggling to find a good bite however we all have those days. Just keep at it and try new spots to locate the fish.
Black Sea bass reports are only getting better with some nice blue headers being jigged up.
We’re seeing some really warm water out front up to 74 and temperatures of up to 84 in the Salt ponds. Keep this in mind while targeting striped bass. The bite is better during mornings and evenings as they can get finicky during the day when the sun is high. Live eels and chunked fresh bait continue to produce, as well as large soft plastics (Joe Baggs, Gravity Tackle). The first two hours of incoming tide in the pond seems to have the most action.
Offshore fishing south of the island continues to produce well for yellowfin and bluefin. Most of the fish are still being caught on the troll but there seems to be more of a jig bite developing. Bring proper gear and watch out for the giants as there seems to be more than a few around this year.
