Fishing Report 7/10-7/16

This past week has shown another round of solid fishing. As the water temperature in the river continues to rise, the bite is definitely getting slower. Getting out early in the morning has made a difference in the number of bites we are getting compared to an afternoon trip. It seems that those river fish get lockjaw when the water gets really hot, or only crush a 3-wayed bunker off the bottom where the water is a little cooler. Although there are not as many fish in the river, the quality can still be found. We managed to land numerous 40+” fish throughout the week. The fishing outside of the river remains steady as well. Water temperatures are a little cooler sitting at about 72 degrees with pretty clear water. Reefs are still holding fish of size, they are getting harder to come across. We have found success 3-waying bucktails early in the morning as well as a combination of 3-wayng and free swimming live bunker. The bite in Block Island has been RED HOT! I have made a few trips over to the island and the action is non-stop all night long. All big fish. The gravity tackle eels has been outfishing a live eel. Those big fish cant resist that GT wiggle! #Twenty4SevenGuide
