Block Island is known for its striped bass fishery, and that is where we like to target them by either drifting eels or throwing topwater water plugs in the early mornings and evenings. It doesn’t get any better than watching a 30-40lb bass exploding out of the water to take a plug. We like to practice catch and release with striped bass, but if you chose to keep one, they’re 1 fish with a 28–34-inch slot limit. Baked fresh with a little salt, pepper, butter and Ritz crackers on top and you’re in for a treat. Sometimes you’ve got to weed through the bluefish to get the bass but in most cases put up more of a fight. These are 5 fish per person; are fine table fare and great in the smoker if cared for properly.
