Buzzards Bay


Buzzards Bay Fishing Report – October 5, 2018

From the Maritime Academy over to Onset and down throughout the west entrance to the Canal, there has been a good big bass bite this week. The stretch from West Falmouth to Old Silver Beach continues to the one most often mentioned when it comes to albies, but overall the action on funny fish has been sporadic, with early mornings typically producing whatever activity there is that day.

The winds out of the north this week kept pretty much everyone tied the dock. Prior to the blow, folks were picking up good numbers of bass from 20-inch schoolies to those at and just over 30-inches, especially in the morning and evening on the change of the tide. There is an ample supply of small bait around and that has the bass feeding aggressively on the surface, with some schools of small bluefish in the mix as well.

If you like bonito and albies, then upper Buzzards Bay is where you might want to be. Jeff Hopwood at Maco’s said that last weekend, schools of bones and little tunny were reported outside of Onset where there are large schools of sand eels and peanut bunker, as well as some silversides. It’s not unusual to make contact with funny fish between Wing’s Neck and Stony Point Dike on an east current, particularly when it start, and then follow them up to the Maritime Academy.

I haven’t heard any reports about the kingfish or king mackerel trolling bite that was going on a couple of weeks ago in Buzzards Bay, but there are good numbers of bonito being caught in Rhode Island and the odds are that this heat and southerly pump will bring the bones into the upper Bay. West Falmouth/the Cape Codder, Old Silver Beach, and Red Brook Harbor are where they often show first, as well as to the west around Marion and Mattapoisett.
