Finally warming up??
« on: April 30, 2020, 12:30:56 PM »
May 1st is tomorrow and finally a weekend in the 60's with sun  :)


It's been a rainy and cold April. Went out yesterday and water temps were still  48 - 50.  I won't miss April  ;D

Temps in the 60s will be nice!

Now, if we can finally get the wind to stop blowing 15-25 MPH, that will be like icing on the cake  :yes:

As for April, there isn't a single thing that I won't miss about it.  :nope:

This wind can go kick rocks. Its kicked my butt every time I have been out. I was out yesterday on Watchaug and there was a couple hours where it was nice and calm, then boom, white caps. Water temps there are still 50-53.

The first half of April was good to me, with lots of big fish. The last two weeks have been a crap-fest though.

The last two weeks have been horrible for me also, whenever I have managed to get out.

Turning the corner now for sure.  Water temps are holding in the 60's and saw a lot of spawning activity this week.

Now it will probably jump right into summer heat!

Ya, we're finally there!

I have yet to see any beds, although I'm sure they are happening right now. I just haven't been in the right places at the right time.

When I went to the swamp of Westerly the other day, I unhooked my buddies frog from a tree, and I saw what looked like the makings of 2 beds. Another friend I know that fishes a lot from his kayak is seeing some spawning/post spawn fish in the small ponds around. Which doesn't surprise me. Bigger bodies of water are still hanging around in the low to mid 60s though from what I hear.
