The Catch
Bass (Striped)

I had two day s on the water this week, and both days within a mile of the launch area, Stripers were feeding, fish form 20 -27 inch . On almost every cast for more than one hour after high tide. I caught most fish on small plastic baits, but took several on top water plugs. As the action slowed I landed several fish with the fly rod. As I moved North along the Bay I founds schools of large bait flushing from the Providence River. They seemed to be undisturbed, fishing in the area did not produce . larger fish are feeding North of the Providence Rive, into the Seekonk River. Early morning around high tide produced the best action. Fish up to 35 inch were taken this week. It wont be long before the larger fish arrive. look for improving weather to help produce bigger fish.
I will be out again soon Look for my report Until Then Tight Lines
