The Sounds

Vineyard and Nantucket Sound Fishing Report – August 2, 2018

One to three-pound bluefish have appeared up and down Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds, especially from Falmouth to Hyannis. They will take pretty much anything shiny and as with any other species of fish you intend to release, switching over to lures with single hooks is the way to go. As a reminder, there is no size limit on bluefish, but there is a ten fish per day bag limit per person.

Middle Ground is the only spot where I have heard of stripers being caught on any kind of a consistent basis; we’re talking schoolies up to maybe 24-inches feeding on sand eels and other small bait. Prior to all this nastiness, there were schools of smaller bass throughout the sounds from the Elizabeths to Nobska and down to Popponesset; small, tight groups of terns were the giveaway to their presence.

When it comes to boaters seeking bluefish, Horseshoe Shoal is once again the main area where folks trolling swimmers such as Rapala Slivers, Yo-zuri DD Swimmers, and Rebel Fastracs have been able to find some. Trolling Hootchies on wire line is another common method used to target blues, with Yo-zuri Hydro Squirts a more contemporary lure that works well in areas where bluefish are feeding, particularly when the bait is squid.
