There is a storm brewing where we should see little to no major effects besides some erosion and high water. Fishing this week from shore has been slower, with most of the decent fishing occurring at night. A new bait has arrived in town this week, being mullet. This is exciting because bass will start eating larger plugs and even top water baits. False Albacore and green bonito are being caught along the local beaches. They have even been coming in close enough for many of the shore guys to get in on the action. They are mostly feeding on peanut bunker, rain bait, and silversides. When the mass of these baits try to leave the ponds is when you may see bass crashing inside of the breachways. There have been quite a few blitzes popping up along the beaches especially on fire district beach this week. Peanut bunker are being chased by striped bass, bluefish, mackerel, false albacore and bonito. Tautog fishing seems to be getting even better with some nice catches reported from areas in 20 to 35 feet of water. There are also still some nice sized black sea bass around along with plenty of big scup. Tuna Reports continue to be great out past block plenty of bluefin, yellowfin, and Mahi. Giants are still in tight to Point Judith lots of fish landed this week.
