We went out in the boat today in search of these fish. And, we found a pile of them attacking tiny bait. Only problem was that they would not hit. At times, there were fish busting in front of us, on the side, and even in back of the boat. There was no shortage of fish to cast to. But, getting these sharp eyed speedsters to hit was a different ballgame.
We tried metal of different makes and sizes, the ole reliable float and fly and even small swimmers. Not even a sniff. Finally, we decided to move to a location where the water was a bit rougher and where there was slight current hoping the fish would be more active under these conditions. That did it.
I also snapped back on my float and fly combo with one of my pink Deceivers that I did so well on last year, and they started hitting. It was not a magic bullet and I had to really work for three fish, but I was getting better action. Albies can be tough at times to fool especially when fishing in calm, clear and shallow water and when they are feeding on micro bait.
Right now, the albies are your #1 gamefish along the RI oceanfront whether fishing from shore or boat. Stripers and blues seem to have departed. The albies are just about everywhere there is deep water and bait. You can even get them when nothing is showing
