Their writer, Zach Harvey will post his latest fishing reports.  Fluke Fishery Lights Up at Block; 502-Pound Mako Landed: "One of the things I have always loved about the Ocean State’s fishing community is how tightly it is bound together by forces of habit, tradition, and camaraderie—to say nothing of the “small world” phenomenon, the impossibility of crossing more than two degrees of separation between any two RI fishermen."  Click HERE to read more!
