Block Island



Just because Labor Day has passed, doesn't mean it's time to haul the boat out and pack up the rod and reel!  This Friday through Sunday, the annual Block Island Inshore Fishing Tournament returns for a full weekend of friendly fishing.  Angler versus angler, let the competition begin to see who can haul in the largest fish possible!  Whether you're casting off the stern of a forty foot sport-fish, or dropping a hook in the water while relaxing on your thirteen foot Whaler, everyone is invited to take part in this lively event (after all, it was only two years ago that a 9 year old took home the gold with his 26 lb. Striped Bass!) To take part in the action, simply register with BI Fishworks at 401-466-5392.  Don't miss out on a chance to take home a long list of donated prizes from local businesses on the island.  Let's not forget though, the greatest prize of them all - a years' worth of bragging rights!  


...And if you just can't wait for the action this weekend, check out some awesome videos taken out on the water and learn a helpful tip or two from our friends at Badfish.tv
