Default RI River Rebel Report 5/9/08

River Rebel Charters report 5/9/08

This morning left the dock at 0600 with out a trip scheduled so I figured I get out and look around. The wind was out of the north water temp 56 degrees. Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock I came across some menhaden and set up to snag a few for some up coming trips and as the first one came to the boat a large bass was in tow of the bait. I set up a live line rig and went back to snagging as I snagged the next bait my live line was off and running. After a long 10 minute battle, the first 30lb 40 inch fish of the year for the River Rebel was onboard. I quickly hooked the next pogie up to the live line and off he went but I dropped that fish which appeared to be in the same weight class as the first. Now out of live bait I circled the boat back around my mark and snagged my next bait when all the sudden the reel started screaming and I landed a nice 36 inch fish. The problem today was I would snag a pogie a bass would be ripping them off the treble. It is now about 0700 and I can’t get a pogie to the boat because of the bass so I switch over to a jig until I can relocate the school of pogies which never appeared again but the bass kept blowing up on the surface. White and blue and white worked the best for me today in the 2once class. I landed 7 bass in the 38 to 34 inch range and I don’t know how many under size bass came to the boat. If you could get the jig past the schoolies you would come up with a keeper size bass. The wind shifted out of the east and the fish were still working but the bigger fish seemed to have disappeared. So at 1000 called it a day. Have several dates still open for May so if interested call 401-253-9639.
