Media Partner Coastal Angler will be providing fishing reports for us throughout the season. Their writer, Zach Harvey will post his latest fishing reports.  School Bluefins Explode Close: Block Island East to Browns, South to the Dump: "It has generally been my experience—as long as I’ve chased and compiled fishing reports—that even in the seemingly “off” seasons, our fishermen will find at least one memorably good and almost entirely unpredicted fishery that takes the sting out of other disappointing (and predicted) opportunities. It has been, so far, a season of decidedly shaky striped bass odds, and a fluke fishery bad enough that more than a few of my seasoned sources are starting to fear that the enormity of drag and gillnet pressure in recent winters to our south is doing significant damage to the summer flounder stocks that have populated our spring/summer inshore grounds for more than a decade"
