Just the right place...

...to get your gear, bait, rigs, etc. and great information on where they are biting. Stopped by on my way up to fish for stripers with my buddy off Watch Hill Light and Fisher's Island a few weeks back and, when I mentioned our plan to Jimmy, he course corrected it. Turns out he had fished the same area just two days earlier and suggested that we try five miles further east off Weekapaug instead... ...my buddy and I literally had the best day of our entire year. And thank goodness because it turned out to be our last day of the season. The water boiled with stripers for four straight hours. All stripers, no blues. We chased birds over just one square mile all afternoon and pulled in more than thirty apiece. Only one keeper, but a [delicious] beauty...and the rest put up great fights! When we headed back around Watch Hill Light [where we would have otherwise been spending our time with the rest of the pack] to our slip on the Pawcatuck at the end of the day and checked in with a few boats on how they did...they were pretty quiet...a few black bass and tautogs, but no stripers. And just in case you are wondering, the name thing is just a coincidence...no relation and it was my first visit to the shop...the first of many!
