A complete guide to fishing Rhode Island waters, Chris Connelly of Narragansett takes us through a typical fishing season from early spring to mid fall. Some areas include Newport, Block Island and Narragansett bay where anglers can target species from striped bass to false albacore with common Hogy Lure products such as the heavy minnow jig, the sand eel jig and the epoxy jig lure.
I brought my own gear to the island to target the fishery of the rich inshore and nearshore waters with Laurenz. Over the years, we explored more and more of the island and learned all about the extraordinary, and yet unrecognized, fishery. We used many jig and pop techniques to target both inshore and pelagic species.
