We follow the fish..
Snowfly Charters will run trips from all
points off Block Island, the mainland Rhode Island and over to Montauk
Point during the fall run (Sept & Oct). We will also run out of
Cape Cod Bay for Bluefin Tuna. We start taking charters in May as
the annual migration of Striped Bass makes its way up to Narragansett
Bay and Block Island. Watch Hill Reef is also getting thick with squid
at this time. For those that are not
familiar with fishing Block Island you are in for a real treat. Some of the
beautiful and uncrowded waters in southern New England surround
the island. The island is known for it's BIG striped bass.
The state record striper of 71 pounds caught on the south side of Block
Island in 1980 was crushed with a 75 pound fish in August of 08'.
Most Striped Bass are caught on surface flies and plugs. There is
nothing like being witness to a monster Striped Bass blasting an
artificial right in front of you! There are always marauding,
bluefish to be had around Block island. Bluefish will destroy topwater
plugs with reckless abandon as well as jump and pull like the insane
fish that they are. The Striped Bass get all the attention but Bluefish are
a much better game fish and pound for pound one of the best in the
world. Block Island is one of the premier points of departure for
hunting Bluefin tuna and sharks. 5 to 15 miles off
BI is all you have to travel to the tuna/shark fishing grounds.
Bonito and false albacore will generally show up in mid
August and provide some of best light tackle fishing an angler can have.
I will also make runs in the fall to fish Montauk, the "Race" at fishers
Island, Watch Hill, and Point Judith, Rhode Island. Please contact
me with any questions about customizing a trip.
Latest Fishing Report
Sept 13, 2014
It's been a good season thus far for Snowfly Charters. Capitains John & Greg are excited for what lies ahead for the fall run as massive schools of bait ranging from Bay Anchovies to Baby Bunker and even Mullet are spilling out of the local bays and rivers. All the old timers and seasoned guides are going on saying that this is the most bait in more varieties than they've seen in decades. What does this mean other than we have lots of food for predators? Not much but it's exciting know what is possable. After a quiet fall run in 2013 we are waiting with uncertainty as it pertains to how many and what species of gamefish will be pushing into Southern New England over the next few weeks. False albacore have been making regular appearances along the south shore and Block Island. Striped Bass are still in good numbers on the Block and along the reefs of Watch Hill. Capt. John will be moving his operation over to Montauk by Sept 16. Capt. Greg will be running out of all points from Point Judith to Watch Hill. We will be booking well into October so lets get you out and on some fish as the 2014 season starts to wind down.
Until next time, Screaming reels & ripping tides!
