You have a choice: either go with the flow, pull the boat and prepare for another l-o-n-g winter … or bundle up, watch the wind and squeeze another couple trips out of the season.
Up and down the Northeast coast, there are fishing opportunities as we approach Thanksgiving.
If your weekend crew isn’t quite the collective Tiger Woods of the fishing world, don’t despair.
You can still pull off the day without pulling out your hair. Here are a few suggestions to keep from going bald or losing what hair remains.
One little shipwreck can go a long way
The good news is everyone showed up at the boat on time and the weather was as posted. The bad news is, despite a very favorable tide and wind, you’ve yet to catch any of the bluefish you talked up the day before, promising your guests a nice morning on the water. If the situation doesn’t improve, what are your options?
A look at the news and current fishing regulations tells us two things: First, gas prices are going up and, second, bag limits for many saltwater fish are coming down.
Given that state of affairs, it might be wise to consider more than one type of fish on your next day off.
The weather’s perfect, the world is at peace and the fish are biting when you’re angling after dark
The summer offers almost endless boating opportunities, not the least of which is fishing for striped bass after dark. This fishing attracts hundreds of Northeast anglers every year, both because of the size of the fish and the timing, which fits their schedule.

Tim Coleman died May 3, in Weekapaug, R.I., doing what he loved to do best at that time of year: scouting the salt ponds and outer beaches for spring striped bass. He was an exceptional saltwater angler and a prolific writer. Thousands of readers lost an advocate and authentic storyteller for fishing in the Northeast, and anyone fortunate to have known Tim lost a good friend.
