There has been a good number of striped bass being caught from the breachway and back in the salt pond. Live eels have been producing really well and they are also be caught on soft plastics and spooks.
There are a few nice fluke around and those putting in their time have been finding fish up to around 8 pounds off of the local beaches. That’s no fluke. Sometimes we can have a really good fluke bite at the end of the season.
Plenty of time to catch tautog so enjoy the fishery while they are still here. There seems to be a slight pickup in fluke bite out at block as well. Black sea bass fishing continues to produce quick limits and there are plenty of nice sized scup around.
There have been reports of a few green bonito caught locally but no one has reported catching false albacore yet. Bait is starting to school up in the salts ponds. A few snapper blues have been caught, but low numbers of them around this year.
Tuna fishing has been very good south of Block Island for both bluefin and yellowfin. Over the past couple weeks I’ve heard a lot of reports on sharks being caught and taxing their target fish.
