Re: Feb visit to RI...striper fishing?
I'm not familiar with Rhode Island but I think you'd be hard pressed to find a striper bite in February. I live/fish in Maine and things shut down here in mid-late October, maybe a bit later some years (early November) but certainly nowhere near February. I'd be more focused on finding a good pond/lake/resevoir and drilling some holes for trout/togue/pickerel etc. . . . .just my .02 cents man, good luck out there!!!
