Striped bass are arriving now on a daily basis and are being caught in most of the traditional areas around the state. The big surprise thus far, has been the excellent tautog fishing that we are experiencing right now. There are a lot of fish and they are good size to boot. The fish are taking green crabs and sea worms on many of the local rock piles around the bay. The first big school of menhaden has been spotted inside East Greenwich Bay, which means that the bigger fish shouldn't be all that far behind them. We also had a report of the first bluefish of the season being taken on the south shore of the state. This is the earliest report of bluefish that almost anyone can remember. Hope that is a good sign for things to come. Our boat will be in the water and ready to go on May 10th, so if you are looking to go striper fishing or tautog fishing give us a call. The limit on tautog this spring will be 3-fish per man which is pretty liberal considering what it has been.
