    Hey...

    Stripers are cool H2O fish... although they can be found most of the year, when the water temps rise they go deeper and farther off shore and to the north... Migratory critters... I've never had any great luck finding them in the summer fishing from the shore. Best time for stripers is late fall and early spring. In late June-July-August and early September they are pretty scarce along shore because the surf temps. But the Bluefish are abondant and loads of fun to catch... use the right rigging, steel leaders and have a ball!

    However, best to get the info from the locals where he will be... just call some of the local fisherman who run charter service or some of the local bait suppliers... they shoul be in tune.

    Hope this helps!

    He needs to go further north than Rhode Island, about ten miles up route 1 outside Boston. There's the Golden Banana and Checkmate, both are great places to catch strippers.

    Best place for stripers in RI is the Foxy Lady. Ask for Ruby Cheeks.

    Theres some good surf casting a little north @ Plumb Island. I've pulled 20+ pounders there.
