Martha’s Vineyard Fishing Report – October 18, 2018

There are still fish to be caught; the problem, however, as it has been pretty much everywhere around these parts, has been the wind. Steve saw albies busting off the Steamship earlier this week and a bonito was caught inside Edgartown yesterday, and with the water still plenty warm and tons of peanut bunker and silversides around, the funny fish should stick around for a while.

When it comes to bonito around the island, there really is a dichotomy, with boaters having far greater success than shore folks. The inshore bite has already been better than last year, the one fish you can count on right now is bluefish, especially the smaller size. They are pretty much everywhere around the island, mainly because of the vast amounts of small bait, including sand eels, silversides, peanut bunker, and chubs.

A few larger blues are being caught off of Chappy, but there definitely has not been a consistent afternoon/evening run that you can count on. A few larger bass are being caught on live eels at night or by boaters tossing them into the rocks along the north shore and around Gay Head. Bonito fishing continues to improve and a few king mackerel have been caught, but there have been albies reported yet.
