Default jamestown/narragansett report

I went up to Massachusetts to visit my father this weekend, and I asked
him if he wanted to do anything in particular.

He tells me that he wants to go surfcasting in Jamestown, RI.
Hmmmm....ok. I ask him if he wants to charter a boat on my dime
instead....."NaaaaaaHw. Too expensive!" he says.





Neither of us have fished Jamestown or Naragansett. Both areas are know
for rocky ledges and strong currents. So, I decide to inquire with some of
the local forums. The majority ruled that Korkers are a must....so I went out
and got us a couple pair.





We fished Jamestown for a few hours until the wind blew eel grass into the
zone. The combination of the slow fishing and the having our plugs fouled
pushed us off the rock early to try our luck on a sandy beach in Naragansett.

We arrived at the beach and it was packed with surf worshipers. We waited a
couple hours for the orgy to thin before releasing our casts. Not much
brewing until dusk and I landed a small bluefish.





I had been fishing sluggos, pencils, and swimmers. I saw and osprey snag a
porgie and fly off with it. Wow! cool. I took the sluggo off and put the short
pencil back on.

As the sun dropped my father called it quits from fatigue and headed for
the beach. I fished for another half hour and picked up one schoolie
before I went looking for him.





Rhode Island Rocks!

Night is right. Tossing an eel will make you squeal.
Glad you got into a couple of fish.
The rock your father is standing on has a nice deep cut right in front of it, The wash runs out just to his left, It's BryanL's favorite hole. He outfished the entire group standing in that exact spot last time we were there. Best on a dropping tide into flat low at night.

Puppet: Good job and nice pics.

I love that spot. I've spent countless nights on that rock myself this summer. This weekend was slow for me as well. Got skunked once at the canal. Only 2 small bass last night and I had to work hard for em. The fall run is just around the corner

I am impressed you recognize the rock.
Thanks for the info. Good to know that we were in the right zone.

We will definitely return to both areas as Fall turns the corner.

How deep is it there?

The outing was more of a scouting mission, as we had never been to
either location, nor had we fished the rocks. The daylight was helpful in
easing my nerves about my father's safety. He doesn't have much
experience in the surf in general and was surprised by a couple sets....and
it was a calm day. A passive baptism in the daylight is much better for
both our egos than a knockdown dunking in the dark of night.

There was a guy at our second location tossing eels, but I don't think he hooked up.

I have yet to try my hand at the eels.
Perhaps I will do a few test runs before the fall starts cooking.


Thanks again to all who helped me out with their advise.

I have stood on that rock since I was around 12 years old, that would be 35 years ago.
You could have taken 100 pictures at the Tail, all on differant locations and I could tell you where the rips run and the deep holes drop.
It can be a dastardly place to fish, you can be 15 feet away from someone else and they are on time after time, while you watch and get skunked putting you bait in the exact same place. The rips determine where the fish will stack and feed. Just a slightly differant angle can mean you get blasted all night or sore shoulders.

I broke my finger on that reef. It still doesnt bend.
Crushed it pretty good.
I hate using decent plugs when blues are anywhere near.
They get the metal and 4290s prototypes.

Can't believe I missed this thread... That place is not worth anyone ever going to. If you see that rock run, run very fast. Not only are there no fish in RI there are definately no fish anywhere near that island.
