Great thread Diamond. I copied it here from the NE forum so more of us could take part.
I plan to hit the beach sometime this week. 2 hour drive for me.
I plan to fish the area near the VZ Narrows in New York harbor.
The schoolies are about but Ill be after some bulls heading into the hudson.
Clams for dead sticking. Some smaller surface and deep swimmers, bucktails and a few other things to see what works. Odds for success are excellent.

I'm gonna lay low for another 2 weeks or so. I'm itchy for some fishin, but in no real hurry to go freeze my nads off.

Maybe dunk some clams around West Island or the mouth of the Westport River.

Odds for success? Dismal

Wife and kids just left for two days to some indoor water park in Pennsy.
I'm fishing my *** off for the next two days
NoMon in the back. By tomorrow night I'm going to stink so bad of old clam and bunker goo that my dog will run away from me

I was out last night from 10:30 to about 1:30 this morning....threw out some clam on a cod hi-low rig....it was raining lightly so I stayed in my car (I was parked near a sea wall) drank some coffee,listened to the radio, watched my rod tip do nothing for a couple of hours then left....right now the water is to cold for stipers but to warm for cod (at least from the shore)....the cod season officially opened yesterday and I had nothing else to do lol....anyways I pretty much knew I wasn't going to catch anything but that didn't stop me

Hit the beach for the first time tonight, out front, just cause I miss the waves, but it's still pretty early....threw clams for nada.
But I'm off Friday, I'll be bayside somewhere at some point during the day, looking for the warmer water.....clams.

Actually "hitting the beach" will depend on weather.
Probably the next available good day.
Now the non-beach has been a different story for awhile now. I'm finding too many winter hold-overs to pass up a nice day(s) like we were having last week.
The New Moon in May is my usual "let's get serious" trigger.

I started my season in mid march,RI has a pretty healthy resident population in the upper bay,and white bucktails or storm shads produce well.Early fish were in the 18"-22" range,but in the past week and a half i've hooked into some keepers to 33".
