Is there writing on the stone wall for stripers?

EXCLUSIVE

Is there writing on the stone wall for stripers?

After fishing on the rocks for two keeper stripers a night, we would lean on one tailgate, take two cold cans of beer from any icy remains in a soft cooler then walk to one long, sagging, stubborn stone wall. Through a sweet harmony of crickets and cicadas, we faced a farmers field of tall grasses and stray sunflowers, thick and healthy. We leaned on stones wet, slick from an evening’s dew, taking in long breaths of damp earth, breathing out pure salt air. With wrinkled palms, innocently we wiped our hands along green moss, unconsciously drawing patterns on slow growing velvet beards on glacial field stones.

The Fish Wrap Writer Edition Al’s Goldfish Lure Might Just Change The Way You Fish

EXCLUSIVE

Al’s Goldfish Lure Company Fish Wrap Writer Edition Saltwater Series Lure

For generations, fishermen have caught trout with a classic small metal spoon, the Al’s Goldfish. There’s something really special about a lure that’s seventy years old that still catches lots of fish. It has a classic wobble that drives fish crazy because they just can’t resist the temptation of attacking an injured fish. When Al Stuart first created the Goldfish back in 1952, his idea, much like his lure, was pretty basic. He wanted to catch fish with something that very closely resembled what bigger fish were eating and to build a lure that would last.

The 13’ Predator PDL kayak represents new thinking in the way kayakers sit, move and steer. The Element Seat is a game changer for paddlers who spend more than the occasional hour in their boat. It’s adjustable and any position puts you up high enough to see and be comfortable without feeling like you’re messing with the boats center of gravity. This extra height also affords better positioning for casting a fly rod as well.

MirrOlure lures

Rattles, holograms, articulated bodies, rolling eyes, all these improve a lures ability to catch fish but conditions always change so your tackle bag needs to have solid options. For those days when the surface is just right or for when predictably effective soft baits come up empty, one of my favorite options is a MirrOlure Popa Dog 87MR Surface Walker.

Steel Shad blade baits, bendable and dependable

Under Our Feet, Mushrooms Offer New Tastes For Ocean State Foragers

EXCLUSIVE

Under Our Feet

We see them on our walks and commutes, growing under bushes, popping out of mulch or clinging to oak trees. Some species are more commonly found in shaded, damp woods while others will grow in rotting hay bales or near areas rich with cow manure. From the gorgeous whites of a lions mane to short stemmed bolets freckled orange and yellow to some out-of-this-world feather patterns on a peasant polypore, mushrooms thrive all around us but few understand how many are native to Rhode Island and more importantly for some, which are edible.

So Close, Spring Is So Close…

EXCLUSIVE

Jeff DeBuigne

Spring is so close.

Colors are changing, pale green buds are patiently peeking out from riverbank maples. Tucked under bony rhododendron skeletons, tiny yellowed shoots emerging from wet leaves missed by fall’s rake tell us everything about the real calendar. River herring, Nature’s beloved harbinger of Spring, have arrived at Gilbert Stuart, swimming for Card Pond. Hardy fishermen know their telltale small bites on soft plastics beneath long, winding oily sheens calming choppy waters.
