July 15 Fishing Report

 
 
This past week has been what we've been waiting for! The Big Bass have finally showed up and we have gotten fish daily up to 50 pounds! Monster Black Sea Bass have arrived as well with fish up to 5.5 pounds, all slammers! The Fluke bite has been decent with plenty of fish but only a handful of keeper fish. day and Night bass trips are getting boat limits and catch and releasing fish throughout the rest of the tide. Sea Bass have been taken on Diamond Jigs and squid baits.
Offshore: Early week, Captains Brian, Chris and Rich all had shark trips and caught over 40 Blue sharks combined and released 3 Makos up to 70 inches. The Bluefin are here and their 500-600 pound giants! We've been on them every day since Wednesday. Pete and Shamus were on a Fish for 2.5 hours and lost it just short of the boat. Captain Chris had 5 hookups with no joy. These fish are no joke and have been staying on the same structure for a week. 2 boats back on them today with hopefully a couple of these fish will be taking a ride back to Point Judith!

July 9 Fishing Report

The Past week has seen the bass bite on the SW Corner of Block Island finally started to turn on with bigger fish arriving on the reef and starting to feed on eels during the day as well as the night bite. Huge schools of mackerel were balled up at the North Rip of the Island all week which kept our customers busy loading up and then live lining the mackerel for bass. Sea Bass continues to get better each day with larger fish starting to show around 5 pounds. The Fluke bite remains consistent as long as the tide is moving. Early in the week, east grounds was the spot until the dogfish moved in.
On the offshore scene, The shark fishing has been very consistent this week with a couple makos released as well as a ton of Blue sharks.
The tuna bite is going to bust open any day now with signs of bait, whales and dolphin, it won't be long before the Bluefin are here. Big summer squid were taken on each of the offshore trips this week and live lined for sharks. The amount of bait and life offshore is amazing right now. Any day now for tuna!

June 25 Fishing Repport

This past week the Fluke Bite exploded with trips getting boat limits and Monster fish! Fish between 9 and 13.76 pounds! 13.76 Captain Shamus is holding in the top pick, boated by Nick Jeffreys. Trips south of Block are producing nice Fluke and even on the beaches the bite turned on and kept anglers busy with an ample amount of keeper sized Fluke with Jumbo Sea Bass mixed in! Schoolie Stripers were taken on top water with RonZ lures and diamond jigs at the Center wall. The Striper Bite at Block Island was hot the past few days out by the wind farm with 26-36 inch fish mixed in the quarry taken on the troll and jigging. North end of Block is loaded with sand eels which the schoolie bass are feeding on. Keeper sized bass were taken on the troll and the Jig yesterday. The June full moon is June 28, which means we should see the first push of Trophy Bass arriving on the reef.
