Bass and Blue fishing around the North end of Block Island is like the old days of the 80's. There are sand eels everywhere and stacked up from 20-60 ft in the water column.

Trolling umbrella frames and tubes is working great as well as spoons. Bass are from the schoolie size throwbacks to some 30 lb. fish. Blues are also mixed in sizes and all are stuffed with sand eels.

Bio: I have been a charter boat captain for over 34 years, and have experience in catching every species of fish from flounder to giant bluefin tuna.  I have been known to grab my fishing rod and sneak in-between my customers to wet a line and catch a few fish.  I do this because I love to fish, and enjoy being out on the water where every day brings fun, excitement and memories of great times shared between my customers, my mate and myself.
