Friday

So we have the tropical storm heading this way, which wont amount to much for us but will hit this Saturday. Am I alone in thinking this Friday should be pure fire? Full on fall feed bag paired with a weather system moving in the following day. I am thinking of taking the day out of work. What do you all think?

80 and sunny today, 74 with a chance of rain tomorrow, mid 60s on Friday. The cold front really isnt hitting until Saturday... From there it will be mid 50's throughout all of next week to which I'm willing to bet it will be a tough bite next week.

I think I may take a trip to Indian Friday ;D  but Sunday I have a tournament up at Echo, which I am kind of nervous about. I'm thinking that it will be a pretty tough day out there with that storm blowing in on Saturday. May be a day of finesse fishing, and senkos. Lots and Lots of senkos!

It was. Rained hard early in the morning so I had a nice breakfast and took my time getting out there. Didnt get anything worthy talking about size wise, but numbers wise it was non stop.

Id like to get out there on the water again. I haven't in over a week, and its getting to the point where its going to be too cold for me to enjoy fishing. Plus I cant seem to catch any fish in the cold.

I am supposed to fish a tourney at Amos on Saturday, but the way the weather looks, even if the tourney is still on, I think the wind may be a bit much for my little boat.

I am thinking that a trip to Indian Thursday or Friday is in order! Havent been there since We fished there as a club Curt!

Yeah it does. Later on next week looks decent as well. I think we still have some time left on the largemouth bite.

Its about that time of year where I will start to migrate to fishing places where there are largemouth and smallmouth. The idea being at least one will likely be biting (hopefully). A place like Singletary is a good place to try because you can get at both and it will be a good indicator for me to know when that smally bite is starting to pick up. Once the smally bite starts to fire up there then its time to start heading to the cape. That will sustain me until mid December.

@Brazzy  I am lucky to have Watchaug almost across the street for me. Like you said, there is both largemouth and smallmouth. Also Indian has both, and I have never caught a smallie over a pound at Indian. May have a good chance at finding a good smallie bite there. Even the small guys are fun!

As I post every winter, the Large Mouth bite gets very predictable in November and December, if you have a intimate knowledge of the water you are on. Deep water humps and drop-offs are bass magnets. Most times you can catch multiple fish off each spot.

That's exactly right. The key is having bodies of water that have suitable humps and drop-offs to target. Some of the shallow bodies of water in RI lack these types of spots, so it's better to target lakes that do have them.
