A NEW SPIN

Sport Fishing - - NEWS -

Block Is­land of­fers a new op­por­tu­nity for fish­er­men, thanks to the is­land’s eco-minded of­fi­cials. On the south­east­ern side of the is­land sits a wind farm only 4 miles from the coast, with five wind­mills pro­duc­ing enough en­ergy for the en­tire is­land. Com­pleted in 2016, these tur­bines are ex­pected to at­tract in­creas­ing num­bers of fish. The huge sup­port­ive bases of these wind­mills of­fer bait con­ve­nient places to hide, which at­tracts larger fish such as stripers, sea bass, floun­der, scup, false al­ba­core and other hun­gry piscine swim­mers.
