2022 was a great year here at The Saltwater Edge. We have our customers, friends, and family to thank for that. There wouldn't be a Saltwater Edge without all of you, so thank you, and Happy New Year!
One of the things we are most proud of this year is the Striped Bass community coming together in support of Amendment 7. 99% of the public comments that were submitted as part of the Amendment process were focused on caution and conservation. The fight isn't over but it's hard not to be optimistic when seeing the support for the future of our favorite fish.
Throughout 2022 we had the opportunity to post some great photos and make some new friends on Instagram and Facebook. Our top nine posts of the year are below:
It would be hard to talk about this year without talking about the amazing variety of species we had the opportunity to target. It may have been a bit of a tough year for the shore striper fisherman this year but the boat crowd had an incredible year in Narragansett Bay and at Block Island. There was a pretty incredible run of bass on the RI oceanfront at one point and many of the staff here at The Saltwater Edge took advantage.
The shore albie fisherman had an incredible season this year. We heard guys getting into the triple-digit catch amounts for this season. They don't call it Albie Fever for nothing. It was great to see such a large population of False Albacore come to Rhode Island and stick around for as long as they did. We even had a few dedicated striper SWE staff members put down their surf rods and get their first albies, it goes without saying but they can't wait for next year.
