Rhode Island Striper - Tuna Fishing reports - Block Island, RI

Block Island Stripers

Capt. Jack and Capt. Richard will be providing up to date reports on the fishing from Pt. Judith to Block Island and offshore in 2014. We will include species specific info on Stripers, Bluefish, Tuna, Tautog and Cod.

The striped bass fishing at Block Island has been great in July with many big stripers moving into the Southwest Corner from Montauk.

2013 was an interesting fishing season. The stripers arrived on schedule in April with the schoolies first and the bigger stripers right behind. The fishing held up well into July but began to get picky in August. Bluefish were available on all trips. Some days were good going into Fall but many were spotty with the fish only biting for a short period on a given tide. The Fall migration provided some action if you were in the right place at the right time but in general was disappointing.

Speaking of disappointing the bluefin tuna season was off in 2013 all over the Northeast. RI was dead all year with a little yellowfin bite at The Dump late in the season. The usual bluefin bite off Chatham, MA was slow with a little flurry at the Regal Sword in October. A far cry from 2012 which was a banner year all over the Cape. November saw some great action in The Canyons for the boats that could get there and avoid the weather systems.

Cod fishing did not materialize this winter as expected. We are hoping for a shot of new fish in April. We will keep you informed. The tautog fishing on the RI coast was good all Fall with limits the norm.

As we head into the 2014 season we will keep you abreast of not only our boats but what we see and hear from other boats in the fleet both here and on Cape Cod.
