Fall fishing in RI
 
I am new to the forum and looking to get some tips from the experts. I am planning to head to ri late this month or early oct. Can anyone help me with a good location for that time and some lure selections, live bait hints or anything else that may make my trip a sucess. I have been on a bass charter and did well but am interested in catching and finding these beasts without the help of a captain.

Thank you

I think we'll move this to the main forum for more love.

As for bait you cant go wrong with eels. As for spots, thats a tough one. Id look for rocky points, moving water and white water. Id keep an eye out on the water, you might see some birds working or darker patches of water which are often schools of bait. Good luck, you picked a good time to make a trip rhodie.

God, now that want to know "where to go, what time to go, what lures/bait to use.

Here, wait a minute I'll run right out and catch you a couple of 30s and ice them down for you and you can stop by the house and pick them up. Or, would you rather I deliver them.:fury:

What the hell has happened to this Board?????:confused::confused:

Find a copy of OTW's Surf Fishing Rhode Island - great for spots

you guys are sounding a little too much like the "other" site.
there is plenty of valuable info you can give.

I'm no expert, but I've fished that area enough years of my life to give you some guidance.
In the fall, the fish are moving. I'd concentrate on the major points in RI - Brenton, Beavertail, Pt Judith, Watch Hill. These areas can be treacherous to fish (think dead) so do your research, go down during the daylight and snoop around. You also have the breachways in south county. Charlestown has the easiest public access. It can be crowded on an outgoing tide and there are unwritten rules on how to fish with others, just observe and you'll get the hang of it. Id HIGHLY reccomend fishing the channels in the breachways versus the ends with teh crowd, on an incoming tide, fish will stack up on the curved, points, holes. I'd do most of my fishing at night with live eels. The daylight bite at dawn can be a blast for smaller fish if the bait is there. I would pack a heacy rod for eel fishing and a lighter rod for schoolie fishing. Small plugs, rubber shads, sluggos are all you need. Stop by one of the local tackle shops, pick up some eels or plugs and ask them for advice. All the hot shots might pretend there are secret spots but the reality is that the fish are here one day and gone tomorrow, move around, scout the water and find the bait. be safe, Im not kidding how dangersous some of these spots can be.

I just wear studded wading boots. Spikes of some kind are a must, but IMO korkers slow me down.

Just stop in at any bait and tackle shop close to where you will be staying.Ask them these questions and buy a couple of plugs...better yet ask the questions as you cash out.You will get the info you need.Good luck
