Ocean State this week - 6-22

Saturday's fog and bay activities produced a dismal day for recreational fisherman. In the upper bay, the brown algae continued with the rise in water temperature and rain runoff. Bass fishing has been superb at dusk and
into the night with action curtailing by early morning. The Rumstick Point and Bristol shoreline to the Colt Park boat ramp have been consistant. Silverside and sand eel's have been gathering off of Bristol Town Beach at night. The fog continued to hover over most of the coastal ocean waters. The bass bite off Benton's Reef benefited from an extenuated day of camouflaged conditions.
Troller's jigging chutes and dragging frames with sassy shads/tubes were busy. Swimming plugs and surface ones produced for caster's along the reef and inner shores of Newport's rocky shore.

Mid-bay islands to upper bay locations were busy with boat traffic from sailing regattas, Quonset Air Show, and day-trippers. Sunday's fishing was a wash with all the pouring rains and thunders.

As of Monday, the blue and bass bites have steadily improved. Action along the southern shore of Prudence Island Monday evening produced a score of bass to 10 pounds along with some bluefish mixed in. Action continued steadily for several hours. With the new moon
this week, fish have been aggressively feeding toward evenings. The stronger tide pull has positioned slugs of bass to take up residence near structure that produces small rip lines. Effective lures have been swimming plugs and flies that contain blue in them. Casting and working your lures effectively while others are hooked up will increase your catch ratio. Drifting
through structure or anchoring in rip lines is the mode of choice.

Christo Mihalos, an eighth grade student from East Providence had the time of his life this week. Took five bass to 10 lbs with his school fishing club advisor, Mr. John Gendron. He was the lucky winner of a free trip give away from a fishing seminar that was held this winter. Over 200 middle school and high school students attended the event. Christo, with a wide grin said,"I'm hooked for life now." I dreamed about this trip
for so long. Didn't think we could be so lucky.

Juro- Life's great! It's a beautiful Day- U2

This weekend is shaping up with some of the best tides and conditions to catch larger bass.
