Storm Predictions on Albies

For those with more experience than me on albies does anyone have any predictions on what this storm will do to the season?

Think it will churn up the water, flush the bait, and end the season?

I made a trip to Watch Hill over the weekend. While I managed a few fish it still wasn't the "day I was looking for" to close out the season.

I'd love to get one more day in but wonder if the window is closing. Pulling the boat from Newburyport to RI or CT is no picnic for a day trip, but I'll happily do it one more time for a chance on a day of magic......albie magic, that is.

Any predictions ~ good or bad ~ appreciated.

No need for apologies Bob....any reply is appreciated.

I keep hearing the same thing about Narragansett so that may be the swan song. It actually looks like Saturday will be fishable based on the current wind forecasts.

From others I've talked to there seems to be a lot of optimism that above average water temps will keep them here.

Fingers crossed!

The storms have been tropical which helps. The normal October Nor'easters were the usual swan song.

Last weeks strong southwest winds Thursday-Saturday did move bait out of one of the usual RI spots and so the albie schools were smaller. I did get out for a couple hours yesterday with the strong SE wind and did get a fly in front of a small school before the wind and waves really mucked things up. It will be interesting to see what remains.

I was there on Monday when things were TOO nice and calm and noticed a major drop-off in the bait that was hanging around. There were lots of anchovies and so I would think they moved with the increasing wind.

When in doubt, go fishing!

Happy to say there were still plenty of albies around Saturday.

In fact, the boat had it's best day to date with 6 being landed. I know it's a far cry from all the "we lost count at 20" days you hear about, but it was really nice to see our efforts rewarded.

Landed my personal best to boot!

I think that's a wrap on my season....in my boat anyway.

So farewell fellow albie junkies, until next year!

Winterized my boat and covered just before the storm hit. Given a nice day, I still expect to hit an occasional beach.
