Fishing Report: Striped bass on the move

Greg Vespe, president of the Aquidneck Island Striper Team and Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association (RISAA) board member, reports that “the bass are beginning to drop out of Narragansett Bay for the next couple of weeks, so I recommend targeting the points and outcroppings near the mouth of the bay, which was where I had success this week with striped bass.”

Vespe has caught a number of striped bass this year at places like the Fort Adams area in Newport. “Bass are transitioning so it’s hard to target them as they are moving around a lot as the head out. … That’s why I like the points in the lower bay both East and West passages and the Sakonnet River. All the points to me offer the bass a staging and feeding area to stop at as they pass through.”
