You hear plenty of talk about tides, when people ask about fishing. But just as important—maybe more important—is the effect of current. Particularly in shoaling areas, the flow of current over rapidly shallowing bottom creates turbulence—what fishermen call "rips"—that can be just the spot to find stripers, bluefish, and even fluke.
Today on the Fishing News, Kevin Blinkoff of On The Water magazine talks about some of the noted rips in Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds, and has some tips for how to fish them. We also round up the weekly fishing action. Give it a listen.
