|This fish was taken this week on one of the|
good days. Winter holdover striper fishing
is generally inconsistent.
From now till March winter holdover fish will exist in numerous rivers and backwaters along Gansett Bay as well as along the oceanfront. Only a few diehards will take advantage of this fishery. It is just not a popular thing to do here in RI regardless of how good the fishing is.
I do find winter fishing to be a challenge and an adventure. There's just something unique and exciting about going out on a sub freezing December or January night in the hopes of catching stripers.
