Instead of chasing hardtails, a small craft advisory had Pete and I rigging up the kayaks and paddling to a small island in one of RIs bays. The plan was to camp out on the beach and fish the deep channel adjacent to the island. When the sun came up we would fish the flat on the inside. It’s early in the season, but we figure we could get at least one good striper out of the effort.
With a couple fish landed and a “mini blitz” by the next morning we head back to the mainland and drove east to one of the salt ponds in this area. Pete got another striper while blind casting a flat at the entrance of the pond and then we found some schools of bluefish as we paddled further in with the tide… lots of fun on poppers. We definitely made the most of the tough conditions this trip.
