American Littoral Society Striped Bass Tagging Weekend
JUNE 8 - 9, 2013
The American Littoral Society (ALS) is sponsoring a fishing trip with the Society's most prolific and successful tagger, Captain Al Anderson of Narragansett, Rhode Island, aboard his boat, "The Prowler".
The boat will depart from the port of Galilee, RI, right next to the ferry to Block Island. The Prowler is a 42 ft. North Carolina Custom Express twin diesel sportfisherman with a cabin, tower and full electronics. The trip will include striped bass tagging while fishing the rocky coast of Rhode Island and the rips of Block Island.
Captain Al, who has recently been inducted into the IGFA Hall of Fame; has been stalking and tagging stripers in Rhode Island Waters for over 40 years and has tagged and released well over 50,000 gamefish during that time.
The trip is limited to 6 anglers for the weekend, with an all-day fishing trip both Saturday and Sunday. All bait, tackle, and tags will be provided.
Participants are encouraged to bring surf fishing gear along, as there will be opportunities to experience some of Rhode Island's great shoreline fishing as well.
On Saturday the party will meet for a late lunch (Dutch treat) at a local seafood restaurant. After lunch, visitors can visit the Point Judith light house, and take a stroll out to Black Rock on Narragansett Bay.
