Block Island Fishing

Block Island is a tiny Isle off the coast of Rhode Island, 7 miles long by 5 miles wide.  Block Island was created by glacial deposits dug out of Narragansett Bay by the great glaciers of the ice age that occurred 10,000 years ago.  It is composed mostly of clay, sand, and rocks.  The waters close by the island are teeming with rocky bottom, it is great structure that bait like to hide in and striped bass love to hunt and ambush.  The main areas that hold fish are the North Rip,  the rocks along the southwestern side and the boulders out deeper, the southeast corner with the many rocks close in, and the the rocky shoreline along mansion beach going north.  These areas are all good fishing areas and hold bait and fish much of the time during the season.
