Default South RI Don’t take your boat out yet great inshore bite Video.

Good fishing is good fishing, I like big fish as much as anyone but a good surface bite is always a good time. Had a great afternoon yesterday just West of the West Gap at PT Judith. Mostly Bass to 26”, Chub Mackerel, Bluefish and even Sea Bass.

New boat is a joy to fish on really looking forward to more this year and next.

We left Narrow River about 7:30am same day, ran down to Scarborough Beach, not a single bird, bait ball, boil, or anything! Should've headed down a little farther. Oh well, great vid, thanks for sharing!

The fish were eating very small baitfish not the micro bait they were on this summer or maybe it’s the same but the bait grew. The best lure Sunday was a Sand eel colored small epoxy jig it caught well, one main reason it worked was the wind it had some weight so you could throw it anywhere.

Green epoxy jig caught OK we had a few guys so we tried a lot of stuff also I fish that area every weekend all summer so we have a good handle on the area. Sluggo or other rubber bait seem to catch usually the best my brother likes pink, white is good too. Last week pink soft plastic was best.

Deadly Dick did not work, large epoxy caught but not the best, small xrap bunker color did well I caught well on a bunker ish colored popper.

I would not leave the dock without some: soft plastic in pink and white, smaller yet heavy epoxy jigs in sand eel, small and medium sized bunker colored xraps are my favorite.

Non of these lures I feel are optimum with the amount of fish it’s a little surprising why you don’t catch on every cast. At times the seem to be not turned on it takes 20 or more cast to get a fish then as the tide starts to move more the fishing gets better and better then it slows right up usually early am or afternoon but in October or so time of day means much less.
