There have been verified reports of fish being caught in Rhode Island the past couple weeks. Close to the beach as the herring trawlers are inside state 3 mile zone!

I heard a very interesting first hand story from up north that is making it very difficult for me not to get in a car and go. Seems like they are to our north and south, they must be here!

If I were fishing for them right now in our area, I would use poppers and sliders. You still may not catch them but your best shot is finding fish feeding and hope to fool one of them. I know that some guys have live lined them in December, but I still say poppers n sliders are best bet if your looking to get lucky. Plenty of herring out there, so pinks, blues, purples, etc... Just my thoughts. :)

Fish are still there have been seeing them up top and on the screen on almost every trip. Pain in the :eek: to hook. If you can get your hands on some live mackerel or herring and you can get a shot to liveline them around some bluefins might produce a bite.
