Fishing in RI runs from May to November.
Below we have provided
a what fish show up when and when we can target them for charters.
Fishing starts in May when the first stripers show up. They
will briefly be along the south shore and then shoot up Narragansett
Bay. We generally target them toward the end of may until the end
of October. Bass can get up to 72lbs, and any fish over 34" long
is female, The big females are prolific breeders and it is better
to release them if possible.
In June Bluefish start to show up and we begin catching them along with
stripers. Flounder fishing also begins and gets better as the
month goes on. Bluefish hang around from June to sometime in
October. Flounder are targeted from mid-June until the first week
or so in September.
In July the bass and blues are usually around in large numbers and we
target them, along with flounder. Some tuna may show up and
if there around we'll go after them. Toward the end of the month
we can go after sharks.
August brings strong sun and high temps and the tuna begin to show up
and we'll schedule trips for them. The tunas usually hang
around until September-November, depending on the weather. A good
storm can drive them away at any time during that period.
September we are mostly targeting stripers and blues with some shark and
tuna trips if the waters are still warm.
October starts with bass and blues and ends with tautog trips, which run
into the first week or so of November. Then we pull the boat.
