Rhoddy report...at last!

You know what they say. When you can`t fish....post. When your catchin`...shut up! Figured it`s about time to let the cat out of the bag! The mid bay is where to be, screw south county!
Fished at Quonny last evening 3hrs for 1 dink, no worms that I saw, cold and blowin 25.
Now for up inside the bay. The place to be from shore is in Goddard, lots of fish spread along the shore from the ramp all the way round to Sally Rock. Tiderunners too!
From a few days before the big blow last weekend the boat guys hammered them. then the wind knocked us out of the game for 4 days. But they`re back!!! I`m not gonna give away pet spots, mid bay is a huge piece of water. Sean and I were out in his new ride at dawn and picked a bunch, Capt. Ray and his charter were completely across the bay and did the same. And they`re not dinks! Sean earns high marks in the good deed dept. for towing in a quahoager with a blown motor!!

Thanks for the report. The softball, tee ball, this that and the other thing have kept me off the water and it's great to at least read about it. The pic doesn't hurt either.

Nice fish Slinger, and what a su-weet ride Sean! Your deed will go rewarded some day.

Sounds like Capt.Ray's too busy catching to post too

Bean counters delight!

We pulled the boat around one o'clock Sunday at East Greenwich RI.

My guess is my clients caught over 100 stripers Sunday and maybe 60 Saturday. Sunday was the best. Except for a half hour Sunday, they caught relentlessly. Most in the three to five range. We had a dozen fish at nine pounds. We later caught a slug of new fish coming up the bay near Poppaquash Point. Those turned out to be the largest of the day. Today and tomorrow should see more bass in the teens entering the upper Narragansett Bay . Wish I didn't have work. This great fishing should last for the next five days. The massive amounts of silverside schools will start to break up into smaller pods and disperse the fish. With the absents of river herring, we probably may not see as many twenty pound fish this spring. Most fish were taking the fly three feet below the surface.
Most anything worked as long as you had the right size profile.

Sean, Have a few pics of your boat and some video tape. Sweet ride my friend. Nothing like having a new boat and navigating by instuments in the fog. Trial by fire. Flat conditions and so few boats kept the fish up all morning.

Well, since the proverbial cat is out of the bag on this one...

Slinger wrapped up Saturday.

Sunday I introduced my best friend and another buddy to Narragansett Bay. I guess the good deed performed on Saturday was rewarded earlier than expected. We hit fish non-stop from about 5:30 a.m. till 2 p.m. when we had to quit due to sore arms. To say my buddies will never be the same is an understatement. Of course now the expectations are set way too high but that is certainly better than the other way around. Ray's #s and sizes were probably conservative based on our experience. Our biggest fish came in about 15lbs on a six inch Tsunami bait. I threw everything from 1 inch silverside imitations to a 9 inch herring fly and everything got hammered. Wish I had brought a floating line and popper because I had one friend throwing one on the spin rod and the strikes were vicious. Needless to say it was a great day. Maybe I can arrange a day off this week.

Ray, I would love to see those pics and video. Navigating in the fog was actually kind of fun. Just listen for the terns squawking and tails slapping.

Sean

Sean,

Boat looks great, glad to hear it's working out for you! I'm definitely in for the spring clave so I'll see you and Jimmy up there.

Tight lines,

Alright Dave - but one condition, no alumni are allowed to speak the name of a certain island or I might just go loco wishing I was back on Binnacle or Pestell or Graveyard or Delectable Bay or...

Fish porn...

Since everyone enjoys a little fish porn here are a couple keepers (released alive and well) for the boys.

Ramp

Hey guys,

What's a good ramp to use to fish that area?

Craig,

It depends on which side of the bay you are coming from.

East side... Haines Park or Colt State Park

West side.. East Greenwich Harbor or Oakland Beach
