We met a Mom, Dad and son at 5am at the dock.  We left the dock as soon as they arrived and headed for block island.  The sea was flat calm.  Arrived at the rip and the tide was just about run out.  Started trolling with not much luck for about 1/2 hour.  Then we finally found the fish and landed 10 bass and 2 blues.

They had a great time as you can see in the photo below.  Mom caught the biggest striper.
