August 9 Fishing Report

Inshore: This past weeks trips produced some world class Striped Bass on both the day and night bite. Fish just shy of 50 pounds on every trip! The day trips produced some monster sea bass and beautiful Fluke to round out the trips after the bass bite.

Offshore: The Bluefin bite has been pretty consistent with each trip producing 2-4 fish 34-45 inches without having to run too far to get into the action. We had our first canyon trip this past week which yielded a few yellows, some big bull mahi and some small Bluefin we grabbed inside on the way home. We were also treated to an amazing show put on by a humpback whale about 20 yards from the boat. Open Dates still available in August Call Captain Brian Bacon to book today 401-243-7046 www.BigGameFishingRI.com

July 29 Fishing Report

The Night bass bite was epic the beginning of the week with boat limits of fish up to 49 pounds on the boat scale and caught and released monster fish throughout the remainder of the trips! More giant Blues were mixed in to the catch. The day bite on bass this week has been ok, 3 trips fishing in between the tides produced limited numbers on eels so we had to get on the troll to get the bass to chew.
Light tackle sharkin was fun on Monday with 7 Blues and a small Mako.
Sea Bass action is red hot at the hooter with boat limits of all knot heads up to 4 pounds!
The Fluke seem the know that the size limit is 19" as most of the fish that were caught this week measured 18-18 1/2. Outside of the many shorts that were caught we still managed to grab a couple 7 pounders this week.
The Cod Fishing Has picked up, we got a lot of nice fish this week with a couple 15 pounders mixed in!
After this blow, we will be in full offshore mode as many of the trips are booked for tuna! We still have plenty of weekdays left in August and September for Prime Time Tuna Action and Striped Bass. Call Captain Brian Bacon to book today at 401-243-7046 www.BigGameFishingRI.com

July12 Fishing Report

Inshore: This week the bass bite has finally turned on with monster bass taken at night on live eels and fish up to 35 pounds taken on the troll during the day bite. Every drop on the troll is and instant hook up! Giant gator blues are mixed in with the bass. Huge blues up to 15 pounds! Sea bass have invaded the local beaches and reefs, nice keeper sea bass on every drop. Plenty of Fluke around as well.

Offshore: Shark season is in full swing, busted off a 250lb. mako at the boat yesterday after a 45 minute battle on spinning gear. Also had an additional 6 Blue sharks.
Knot Reel Teeth Fished the Snug Harbor Shark Tournament and managed a tally for the weekend of 4 Makos and 16 Blue Sharks. Nothing big enough to bring to the scales but plenty of action none the less. First signs up Bluefin Tuna are starting to show and it should be any time now that the bite will bust wide open.
We had a decent Cod trip yesterday with a Pollock on the first drop mixed in with some nice Cod up to 15 pounds. We did well until the wind picked up and pushed us over 2 knots a drift















Thursday, July 6, 2017

This past weeks trips have been packed with a ton of 27-32 inch striped bass with a hand full of 30 pound class fish taken on the troll during the day. The bluefish returned to the back side of Block in big numbers this past week
The Fluke and sea bass bite remains decent with a bunch of nice fluke up to 7 pounds and a slew of keeper size sea bass.
