A Heck of a Week

It has been one of the best weeks of winter fishing that I have had in January in the last few years.  This week I landed over 50 wintering over stripers with many keepers. This unseasonably warm January weather has kept the fish active in upper Gansett Bay and has led to some very good fishing.  Add some rain and melting snow and ice this week along with favorable high tides at night and it has all set up terrific fishing.  Zoom flukes mounted on small jigheads of less than 1/2 ounce have been the hot ticket.  Flukes in a light color like albino, white ice and Arkansas shiner have been the best colors.
