Hello to everyone,
Just wanted to jump in and post a little info about me and where we'll be fishing once we get this white stuff out of here !

I fish with my son who is 14 and we fish mostly Narragansett Bay and Sakonnet Point area in RI. We've fished mostly from shore but this year we bought a 19' center console boat and look forward to spring.

We don't have a lot of experience but we look forward to learning from this site and hopefully catch a good size stripper; we've mostly caught and released small schoolies and I'd say our biggest fish has been 28" or so.

We just got two wire line set ups so we'll be learning this technique more than likely after we mess it up a few times

Anyway I look forward to reading through the posts and posting myself

Ed
Cuz 'N Eddy <--- Boat name

Also everyone always asks if the boat name is from the movie vacation but actually it's a nick name that my cousin gave me after she was involved in a very serious car accident down on 88 in westport, MA. She had very serious head trama and had no memory but when she saw me I was cousin eddy , she knew me but she had no memory of our childhood... a year later and her full recovery everyone still calls me cousin eddy so I use

Welcome Cuz. 8) Great to have you aboard. This is my favorite site by far. The guys here are the best. Best of luck for a great spring of action. Hope to be releasing a few from points south so they can get up your way. Enjoy. :P

Welcome to the site Ed.......

Boy did you just come to the right place. I don't know how long you have been fishing Sakonnett Point but i've been fishing a little place called Briggs Beach for the past 35 years or so. I don't fish Sakonett at all myself but i know how the fishing is a mile or so away. If i'm not catching Stripers in Little Compton, i'm over at barrington beach fishing for Blues and Stripers in the bay.

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. i too will be in the market for a boat next month, i'm going with something a little bigger. I need family enjoyment as well as a fishing boat so, i've been looking at 26-28 foot cabin cruisers. I need something that will take me from the bay over to little compton via open ocean, i also have a sister that has lived on Nantucket all her life and i'd love to be able to cruise over on my own boat. Mostly i've been looking at grady Whites. but occasionally i give a big ole bayliner a second look.

Where are you out of Ed?

Hey Cuz-
It's nice to hear of someone from the site fishing my 'ol place :D . I'm not local any more, but Briggs certainly seems like he's got the area covered well.
Maybe we can throw a few casts this summer when I make my way down from the frozen tundra (aka N.H.)?

Been good. Busy as all heck. Trying to get as many hours in working as I can so when I ask for time off in the summer, I won't get any pushback
Looking forward to the show in RI, meeting some S247'ers and tossin' some casts. 2 months to go... :cry:

Lol. Sorry. Don't think you'll find many of those out in Naragansett Bay. Hahaha

Best of luck to ya.

In late August, I hear (and sorta saw) Horseneck Beach, there is some good striper and blufish fishing. Offshore that is. There is plenty of rock islands and theers a really nice marsh that I saw Plenty of striper action in. Unfortunately, I was fishing from shore, had no live bait, and no luck. The blitzes were to far out. :cry:

But at the mouth of the marsh, there is some nice currents/rips. Really strong. You can see the baitfish get pulled out into the current.

Horseneck beach is in Massachusetts, maybe 30 minutes from the RI coast, and there is a boat launch in the marsh.
