Rhodey? The End? No. Shore report

Well Grego and I spent Sunday reeling in about 40 twinkies a piece from the Danvers R. , and then up to Manchester. Looks like the last outing.
What's with Rhodey guys? Horrible late October reports. One more day would be nice but what gives?

Lefty,

I still think it has yet to happen in Rhody. Water temps are still around 60 and as of Sunday night Greenwich Bay still had wall to wall peanuts. I think you could see action into November. Last year we had albies in eastern LI sound as late as November 5th. I wouldn't count us out just yet.

Still summer time fishing here. Still finding lots of fish up in the providence area in the salt ponds. The blitzing folks equate to fall fishing really just is not happening yet. Hopefully once all this bait falls out of the bay things will get going. I experienced blitzes as late as Nov 30th last year so there is still some fishing to come.

Tons of fish where leaving the big salt pond on Sunday. A few friends can testify to it. They'd never seen anything quite like it. Shores to the west should start lighting up like mad. The Thames is also going bonkers on the outgoing.

Hmm . . . . Take a look at some of the late October and November posts from prior years . Strange things happen and every year is different, but there's no reason for me to believe that things would end early this year. I think we still have a month of fishing when you will find lots of small fish but still have a chance to hook a big blue or striper, or maybe even a hardtail during the next week or so. Some very (very, very) large stripers have been caught in November in MA, RI and CT. You never know if you don't go. Hasn't happened for me yet, but that's what I keep telling myself

Quentin...if this weather ever quiets down...look for someone with a white plastic thumb brace on the RI shores...I really would like to get down to Watch hill area and points east before the fat lady sings. Was hoping to hit Sandwich earlier this week...but with the blow going on, it would have been ridiculous.

Sandwich?

Hmm...I fished sandwich this past Sun at dawn on foot for 4-5 hrs. Low tide is obviously not ideal there. I found it to be kinda slow compared to previous weeks. Please PM me if I'm missing something!

Plymouth had fish last night. These next few days could push the temp below tolorable levels though. Latest I've ever seen 'em blitzing on top in my area. Sunday morning was my first skunking in a long time but they seem to be hitting in the afternoon/evening - all small.
Seals are in the harbor and they are doing a good job on adult pogies. Maybe the pogy comeback is keeping the seals off the stripers.

This weekend is looking tuff weather wise. Unfortunately that may spell the end of the NE boating season for me as I am off to NC the following week. Halfway tempted to burn my last vacation day I was saving for the holidays on Friday though. NW 5-10 is looking good for a final cruise. Hope someone will get out to enjoy it.

Jim: Yes sir, very memorable, the sashimi man, whoa!

Sean thanks for the update. I have a hard time thinking it hasn't started yet down there. I guess I need a skunking to put the season to bed with!

That would be a YES,there are a couple of jettys(beach breaks)that seem to attract and hold fish this time of year not far from the canal.

I'll be fishing on Friday at Watch Hill. Low tide at 6am so we'll have the entire AM in coming tide to play with. NW to west afternoon and no howling wind! Ron. We didn't fish together this year and in one month it'll be over. Come on down Ron, Paul, Craig, Bill, JimW, Quentin, Adrian and whoever else can make it. We'll have our own little Rhoddy III!
