Michael - How's Newport these days?

Michael,

Fishing Newport tomorrow.......which way should I point the boat at 4:30 AM?

Mouth of Sakonnet?
Prices Neck?
Newport Harbor?
Prudence Island?
Beavertail?
2nd Beach Surfers End?
Forty Steps?
Mackeral Cove?

Bringing my Irish buddy Barry......He's never caught a striper. I fly....he'll plug.

Thanks for the help.
Doc

RE: Michael - How's Newport these days?

Doc,

If you can, put the boat in at Fort Adams. They have a great boat ramp there. From there, I'd cruise up past the west passage to the reefs off Brenton Point. The tides should be perfect. Work the reefs as well as possible. Big fish have been showing there recently. I wouldn't miss hitting Prices Neck to the left and also hitting Beavertail to the right. If all else fails look for birds and you'll be golden. Your buddy shouldn't have any problem getting his first striper. I've heard but can't confirm big Blues in Newport Harbor. Recent report have been sighting red tide in upper bay so avoid that. If you hit all the places you mentioned I can't imagine a less than stellar day for you. Just be carefull out along the reefs.

Good luck.

Great stuff.

I am partners with my brother on a boat we keep in Castle Hill cove. Brenton Reef - Price's Neck - Ledge Road will be the route - unless we see the birds.
Thanks for the tips.

Doc

My next door neighbor kept his boat "Toby" there for years. What an ideal spot.

Good luck and keep us land locked folks up to date on how you make out. Also, try to get the latest from Steve at The Salt Water Edge!

Dino keeps his boat (Toby) right in front of ours! I only come down from Boston once in a while. Sometimes I fly solo and need someone on the bow. Any interest in last minute invites?
