FLORIDA: After periodic rampages off Miami Beach, blues are invading Biscayne Bay; best sports are in southern part. Most east coast areas report in-and-out action with occasional red-hot flurries as choppers chase bait onto beaches.
STRIPED BASS: OREGON: Coos Bay agent reports FG in isthmus slough, best bait pilchard; shore casters taking fish but boats doing better despite rough water; OG for bait-fishing but fly-casters calling it quits.
RHODE ISLAND: In three hours three men in boat off Charlestown beachway between Westerly and Kingston boated bass weighing 58, 54, 52, 45, 45, 40 and 30 pounds last week. (You should have been here.)
CALIFORNIA: Winds slowed fishing last week as migration into delta nears peak, with most fish in 10-pound class (but Bethel Harbor reports lunkers to 39 pounds). OG for easy limits until mid-November cold weather, with trollers picking up a few bonus chinooks.
BONEFISH: FLORIDA: Clearing weather should bring bonefish and bone fishermen back to Keys flats; OF for fly-flingers and spinfishers.
