Block Island Stripers

Capt Mike - 07/15/2011

Fished this morning on a 6 hour trip with angler Steve Carlson and his two buddies from out of town .. We started the day off on the east side of Block Island in 65.7 deg. water with a depth of around 28 feet .. The water had a green tint to it and the vis. was roughly 15 feet. As the incoming tide kept coming and the water cleared up it rose the temp  to 67 deg. We drifted live eels with no weight on 20 lb spinning gear and even the Captain got into the action with several times having 4 fish on at the same time .. We had one short today that was around 26″ and landed over 35 Stripers with them averaging 22 to 28 pounds .. At one point towards the end of the tide we were in 28 feet of water and  we could look over the side of  Adrianna’s gunnels and watch dozens of stripers milling around the ocean floor .. Like fishing in a fish bowl .. Capt. Mike Neto

Adrianna is a 28 foot c/c with a stright inboard diesel. 360 deg. of a pure fishing machine, this allows us to use the litest tackle to catch monster fish. To date the Adrianna has landed 23 Stripers over 50 pounds and 2 Stripers over 60 pounds, the biggest weighing in at 65.4 pounds. We use nothing but lite tackle, 20lb, 15lb and 6lb spinning gear. We have caught and landed Stripers up to 54 pounds on 15lb and Stripers up to 43 punds on 6lb gear. If you don't find exciting, then you better check your pulse !!
