Slots Over Slots in Abundance; Some Blues

 | By Seamus on 5/15/2024 8:15:00 PM | Views (30)

I landed this slot from the kayak this evening.
Slots and over slots are in abundance right now,
especially in Gansett Bay.

The good times are rolling especially if you are fishing the Bay where there are very big numbers of big stripers around. In fact, this is the most big fish I have ever seen at this time of year. Slots are more plentiful than schoolies (no surprise).  But, I have seen and caught many over slots in the last week.  I am getting them from both shore and kayak.  My biggest striper of the week was a 43 inch over slot that hit a Yo-Zuri Hydro Pencil fished from shore.  That evening I also landed three other over slot stripers along with one big blue.  There are some bluefish in the mix and they are big.  I had one in the last week that I estimated was around 10 to 12 lbs.  Last year at this time there were good numbers of them.  I'm guessing this cooler than normal weather is slowing the arrival of big numbers of them.

I've fished for stripers the last six out of seven days/evenings.  No blanks and lots of action.  Today I was out in the kayak and landed a couple of slots on Slug-gos, and I had a good number of hits. The fishing is about as hot as it gets right now for this time of year.
