Striped Bass Fishing in Newport
Flag Cancel on 1910 Era Divided Back Post Card

I'll bet the guy who sent this postcard didn't even catch a fish! Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Rhode Island did produce record size Striped Bass on a regular basis when I was growing up. However, I spent more time going after Fluke, Scup and Quahogs. (Local RI names for Summer Flounder, Porgy's and Hard Shell Sea Clams.)
