Offshore Fishing Report – August 3, 2018

Out east, guys are still jigging up their own bait, in this case mackerel, and livelining them to the giant bluefin in the area. Some impressive fish have been caught, but folks fishing the areas around the Regal Sword, Crab Ledge, the BB Buoy, and other waters known to hold big bluefin should be aware of the notice from NOAA announcing the closure of recreational giant bluefin tuna fishing for the remainder of 2018.

The reality is that everyone is waiting for someone else to go south of the Vineyard and report back that they caught fish, but if you want to catch fish, you have to burn a little gas.

Prior to things getting dicey on Tuesday, a few more giant bluefin were caught up on Stellwagen; livelining bait such as mackerel or bluefish has been the way to go. Out east, the bluefin have generally been smaller from Crab Ledge to the Regal Sword and up off the Golf Ball, with a good number of people targeting them with spinning tackle.
