Elizabeth Islands Fishing Report – October 11, 2018

There aren’t great numbers of large fish, but the consistently successful anglers have certain areas scoped out that produce during limited stretches of the tide. The reality is the closer we get to Halloween, the fish are likely to pay a visit to a certain stretch of water for a day or two before moving elsewhere as the begin to feed and get ready for a lengthy trip south or west.

Elizabeth Islands Fishing Report – September 28, 2018

Woods Hole has been the best spot for catching albies from boat and shore this week; but, the reality is that conditions along the islands have made for tough conditions all week long. A scenario from Monday that just might indicate a start to the fall migration as he was in Woods Hole and found large schools of bass and bluefish working peanut bunker right up against the Great Harbor shoreline of Penzance.

Elizabeth Islands Fishing Report – September 7, 2018

Striper fishing down the islands has been consistent, with a number of 27 to 32 inch bass caught this week. There have been schools of small bass around, but they have been sporadic; Penikese has had a mix of both bass and blues, but the quality of the fishing has been varying widely from day-to-day, despite the presence of large schools of small bait.

Elizabeth Islands Fishing Report – August 16, 2018

There is no problem finding the fish around Woods Hole, with the largest flock of terns I have seen in years working over small bluefish around Nonamesset and another concentration between Little Harbor and Nobska. There are still a few boats chunking around Felix Ledge and other spots in Quick’s Hole, as well as drifting eels both there in Robinson’s on an incoming tide.
