Sunday 11/14 report?

Man it's cold out this morning. Overslept and did not make it out to the beaches before work. Anyone brave the cold today? Let's hear some reports!

Ok, so it's now 9pm! The diehards must still be out there knee deep in fish, as no reports have come in as of yet. Did anyone fish today???? Looks like the 50's this weekend! Do not hang up those rods just yet!!!! Last outing was one of the best this fall. Juro. Come on down! Maybe we can get a "final bow to the season" crew together. Had three mornings when I sure wish I'd had a longer stick! Just out of reach.

I hit RI at about 10:30 am this morning. Stopped at the overlook east of Weekapaug to look for bird activity. Lots of birds way out, a few in close around the point. Saw a flyfisher making his way out onto the rocks but didn't see him hook up. Made a quick stop at Weekapaug and saw a flock of birds working towards Watch Hill so I headed to Napatree, hoping that the fish would run along the beach there. I started walking the beach and about halfway to the point I ran into a nice blitz but the fish were all small. Chased the birds and fish up and down the beach for a while and hooked up a few times but never even landed one. The fish stayed near shore until about an hour before low tide, then moved out. For a while there was also a massive blitz going on way out from the point. Wish they came in to shore! I stayed until the sun went down but I got cold before any fish showed up so I headed home. Hope others fared better than I did!

I got to the beach about 12:30. Walked over the dunes to find a large flock of gulls hammering the wash. Ran back to the truck got in the waders and grabbed the rod. For the next two hours the fish ran up and down the beach. Some in the wash, some futher out. No big fish for me and didn't see any keepers landed but I ended the day at 6 p.m. with 50+ fish brought to hand. Key was to keep moving and find the fish. Many fish were caught with no birds in sight. I think there were so many fish off shore that many inshore went unnoticed by the birds. Hopefully they stick around for at least one more week and maybe even grow a little! One thing I didn't understand was that the few boats in the area were coming in close to shore. There must have been hundreds of Gannets dive bombing a few hundred yards offshore with some huge splashes underneath visible from shore going unmolested by the boats.

Great reports fellas! As you can see there are still catchable fish out there mostly small but still loads of fun! Bait is so thick under those gannets, the boat guys probably gave up in seach of smaller schools. I will go scouting in the AM before work to add to these ongoing reports. We're in for another warm week! Good luck!

Anyone try throwing foot long flies out there? During the migration there are fish of all sizes in attendance and the brats often make up in excitability what the cows have in size.

Big Sedotti Slammers during the day and an oversize black deceiver after dark. Nothing but short strikes. I didn't see any big bait in close but I can't imagine those gannets were diving on peanuts. I was hoping the herring would move in at dusk but after an hour of short strikes and cold hands I gave in. I know there were big fish farther out but never saw anything to indicate they came within a few hundred yards of shore.
