|It was loaded with big keepers in the Bay in|
|It was one of the biggest|
years for schoolies in a long

numbers this year. Some of
the biggest blues were taken
along the south shore beaches
in the fall.
|The albie fishing was short but memorable.|
For several weeks there were big numbers
from shore and boat.
Albies- I got my first one from shore on Sept.11. For three weeks the fishing for these gamesters was hot and heavy from shore and boat along the oceanfront as they were feeding on large schools of bay anchovies and peanut bunker. While I was splitting my time between fishing for stripers/blues along with albies, I did manage to land over 40 of these little tunny. The hot lure was a float and blue Deceiver fly. Grade- A-
Overall, I would give this past season an "A". It was one one of the best years in a long time and sets up what I believe will be very good fishing for stripers and blues for years to come here in RI.
