Fishing Report: 7 June 2010
The BILLFISH ventured out in search of striped bass and fluke on Friday with mixed results. Surface lures and eels resulted in a limit catch of stripers to over 35 lb. The largest fish of the day was returned to the water after a few photos were taken. All of the stripers were healthy and were taken on ultra-light tackle consisting of PENN 550 reels mounted on Ugly Stick rods. The fluke fishery reflected a "catch a 19" inch cookie cutter' that had to be tossed back by being a 1/2" under the size limit. Sunday, an early arrival upon the Watch Hill Reef Complex allowed for some action on both surface and subsurface lures did the damage. Threatening weather did not allow for a trip out to Block Island but there was plenty of excitement as the linesiders were chasing the surface offerings with amazing strikes.
