November 4 Fishing Report

Blackfish just started to get pretty consistent the past couple of days with the steady cooling of the water temps. Groups got into some decent numbers and fish up to 11 pounds. Sea Bass and Scup is still lock and load with trips producing boat limits on the sea bass and hub cap sized scup. The Cod Bite has slowed down a bit with only a handful of fish taken each trip. Jumbo Sea Bass have kept anglers busy with non stop action during the slow cod trips. We are running daily, weather permitting.

September 29 Fishing Report

Hurricane Jose and Maria have kept us tied up to the dock most days the past couple weeks. The beginning of the week produced some nice striped bass on the SW corner of Block Island with some monster Blues mixed in. Next day we were able to fish was Friday. We were covered up in Bluefish both on the eels and on the troll. Calm weather looks like it will prevail this week and we'll be able to get back out on the fish. Looking forward to more Bass trips, cod fishing and false albacore in the upcoming week... Blackfish go's to 6 fish per person a day October 15 and the cod bite is heating up!

September 18 Fishing report

This past week was filled with a bunch of bottom fishing trips which produced a ton of nice Cod with Fish up to 35 pounds! Both Big Game and Big Game II loaded up on the Sea Bass and Scup, the bite is off the charts. Doubled up on each drop with monster sea bass and scup. We had a handful of nice fluke mixed into the catch as well. Cod Fish are on the move as trips early in the week produced big numbers but over the weekend the cod were a little harder to find. False Albacore are plentiful along the beaches as well as offshore with some greenies mixed in. Big Game had an offshore trip early last week with only one Bluefin landed on a RonZ jigging, False Albacore crushed green machine spreader bars, rainbow chains and squid nation bars on the troll. So many albies around, we couldn't even get the lines out. The Striped bass bite has been hit or miss, mostly miss this past week. The fish that were taken, were smaller fish taken on the troll on parachutes and umbrella rigs as their are still a ton of sand eels on the back side of Block. Plenty of Blue Fish around!
Cod Fishing is just getting started and Blackfish go's to 6 per person a day starting October 15! Call captain Brian Bacon to book today 401-243-7046 or visit our site at www.BigGameFishingRI.com

September 5 Fishing Report

We were only able to get out a couple days this past week due to heavy seas and brutal weather conditions. The days we were able to get out, Big Game and Knot Reel Teeth found the Bluefin right where we left them a week ago. All fish that were taken were between 33-44 inches on the jig and ballyhoo on the troll. The false Albacore have moved in in big numbers! Between the two boats we caught close to 200 Albies! Couldn't get away from them, You'd let the line out, set the drag and you were on again. Caught them jigging too!
The inshore grounds found the Striped bass a little less willing to cooperate this week with only 3 fish taken on the one day we were able to get out and target them. Plenty of giant Blues have moved into the SW corner of Block as well as the East side. All the Bluefish you want with a mix of Green Bonita and false albacore mixed in. The sea bass bite has bumped from 3 to 7 fish per person a day with the couple trips we were able to get out, we got boat limits on the sea bass with a handful of Fluke mixed in. Still plenty of great tuna fishing left in the season, as well as Striped bass! Blackfish and Cod fishing will be heating up soon!
