Thumbs up September RI Clave, Kayak & Shore Fishing

How many are interested in a RI Clave either weekend of Sept.21 or Sept.28?
My proposal is: with kayaks put in at the parking lot on Bay St. in downtown Watch Hill. Launch in Little Narragansett Bay, paddle and fish out around the end of NapatreePoint, fish back to the short jetty behind the beach club in Watch Hill. Those exhausted from catching fish can take out, and several guys can carry their yaks over the dunes by the trail, back to their cars in the parking lot. Those wishing to continue can proceed to Watch Hill Point, stay out of range of the surfcasters on the point, proceed on to Watch Hill Beach. There you can take out , and the kayaks transported to the right of way access, which is off Atlantic Ave. It is only a couple of hundred yards from the beach. Those who really are inshape can reverse their route.
In the latter part of September this route will put you into some of the best fishing to be had on the entire Northeast Coast. Fish to be had are Bass, Blues, and False Albacore, with a spattering of Bonita. The area between Napatree and Watch Hill usually has many schools of bass and false albacore rooming around.
For those shore bound Napatree offers the best shot at bass with the occasional foray in the surf of false albacore. Please believe me when I say October for false albacore is too late. Bass fishing, in my opinion, also peaks at this time. I firmly believe that large bass come through the Cape Cod Canal, then go out around Block Island,over to Montaup, and down the eastern shore of Long Island NY. For some reason there is usally fish to be seen between Napatree and Wastch Hill. Of course those of you shorebound there is always Weekapaug, Quonochotaug, East Beach, Charlestown. This is my second attempt to post, the first I tried to have a poll, made a mistake, it went into cyber space. ArtB
