"Hat Trick".....Latest On The Water Story

This month's issue (September) of On the Water magazine is running my latest story called "Hat Trick".  The story focuses on September fishing along the RI oceanfront from shore and boat and deals with catching the Big 3 of fall fishing which are stripers, bluefish and false albacore. I have landed the hat trick many times from both shore and boat in recent years.  The story outlines ways to catch all three, some general spots and lures that work when the prevalent bait is bay anchovies. 
Besides my story some other interesting stories appear in this month's issue that were written by friends of mine.  Brendan Richards, one of the premier young surfcasters in this state, wrote a very informative article called "Shore-Bound Hardtails".  His story focuses solely on catching false albacore and is loaded with tips and techniques that are sure to catch.  Another friend of mine, Nick Pacelli, penned an interesting freshwater article called "Granite State Late-Summer Trout".  This article tells about some beautiful and productive "off the road" as well as "off the beaten path" trout spots to fish in the White Mountains of NH in the fall.
