Default Rhodie gathering will be on fire!

If you are on the fence, jump off!
If you think you might like to come, be here!
The waters of Rhode Island are on fire with fish and bait. The best thing about the situation is the timing. By the time the Gathering happens, the near shore waters will be warming and the fish will be just as accessable for surf casters as well as the guy's with Yaks and boats. Herring, Menhaden, and Squid are pouring into the bay as we speak, in numbers not seen in years! There are already school blitzes happening on a regular basis with keepers mixed with the schoolies.
I have seen pictures!
I will be out scouting (Fishing) every chance I get, I guess the kitchen painting will have to wait, Sorry Hon!
The Chessie fish should start showing very soon, with large soon to come.
It is on folks, like I have not seen in almost 30 years.
Not in the loop?
get in now, it's the only way to get the specific info, for the gathering place and directions.

I have a gut feeling that "On Fire" will turn out to be an understatement

I will be at the location of the RI Gathering this Friday night doing a little scouting myself

I'll be heading that way after I get home from work and get the kids in bed Friday night. Probably will get to the location around 11pm. High tide is midnight. I can only fish until around 5am or 5:30,,, as I have to be back at work by 7am Saturday morning.

Hey redneckfishing, I haven't yet heard from anyone in your neck of the woods who is planning to show up at this little scouting mission tomorrow night, mostly just a few locals, but anyone who wants to make the trip is definitely welcome to join us

The REAL gathering is Saturday the 17th,, and I know there are several guys who will be coming through your area on the way up for that who you might hitch a ride with. If anyone coming through there can help this guy out, shoot him a PM

I should own part of the gas company by now With the 94 ford f150 flare side with a 5.8 351 loves gas , does also the boat. so does my srt-4 fully upgraded. GAS SUCKS.thank god im an american. i think it should be a little more regulated... But if i look at it this way Oil get pumped out of the ground
put on a ship
brought here
brought to the refinery to get refined
then divided to different oil companies
pouring into the tanks
then into mine.
its about 3.50 a gallon
But milk for a cow down the street cost 3.69 a gallon.
Thanks god you dont fill up with Nyquil or something like 6 buts for a pint.

A little off topic but just wanted to give a point of view.



Gunny email me a time. A little drizzle ill be there. down pour...... maybe not

I'm looking at getting there around dusk, 7:30 or so.
I'm going to throw plugs, not even stopping at a bait shop.
Waders and corkers are a good idea, but not an absolute requirement.
It looks like the rain will die down, but the wind may be howling.
There are many locations within minutes of the start point that will allow us to fish out of the wind. Some of these areas are better suited to billy goats. I am bringing 2 rods, the Rocket launcher and an 8 footer for the smaller plugs. Weakfish are a strong possibility, and 1 to 3 ounce white or white and red bucktails are a good idea. Smaller swimming plugs in the 3 to 5 inch range would probably come in handy.
If you still need more info on getting there PM me.
