10/18 Afternoon -- RI Bad, CT Good

Took a ride to the coast yesterday and arrived at Watch Hill at around noon. Fished Napatree for a while but didn't hike out to the point. Saw some bait but nothing else and no bird action. Ran into Sean in the parking lot -- hope he did better than I did. Drove around for a quick look at Weekapaug, Quonny and Charlestown and they were dead too, at least while I was there.

Headed over to Ocean Beach in CT for sundown and had some fast action with schoolies for about an hour and a half. They were hammering bait on top and I was getting multiple hits and hookups on a white popper before sundown and a black slider when it started getting dark. There were a few larger fish mixed in, and some guys in a kayak said there were blues further out, but all I got were schoolies up to 24" or so. They stopped hitting shortly after dark so I headed home.

Timming is everything

Q, There is plenty of fish around, you just have to be in the right place at the right time. Daybreak, and nightfall. I have had one of the best years I have had in a long time. Except for albies which I have not seen that I could positively identify. At times blues to 13 lbs, and bass to about 20 lbs right in the trench close to to beach.

Yep, bad timing for me yesterday. I had my chances at some fish in the suds last week, I just didn't hook up as often as I would have liked and didn't get any big ones even though I saw plenty of them! Maybe next time!

From Art's reply it seems that the tide isn't as big a factor in the Fall.

During migration, I made a little rhyme to remind myself... "early and late, moving water and bait".

That being said, the south side Dennis beaches on the cape were a massive moving blitz scene with thousands of schoolies and a few submarines moving in cadence with the masses, occasionally creating a sinkhole the size of my kitchen table in the FAC surface yesterday for my last charter of the year.

They're heading your way still, and there are more to come - Nantasket exploded Sunday morning in an epic blitz.

Harry Koons (nauset angler) and I were chatting and we are convinced the migration will last well into November on the outer beaches. We're thinking of having an Outer Limits clave and bbq on November 8th if anyone's interested.

Hey Q...the causeway was pretty decent yesterday. Same kind of situation that you've described at Ocean Beach, but with more shad thrown into the mix.
