Martha’s Vineyard Fishing Report – July 18, 2019

Strong currents and deep water along the north shore of the island are known for producing big fluke. Fishing is OK, with mainly bluefish around Chappy and the occasional bass for shore anglers. There have been no other reports of bonito at the Hooter, but there is plenty of bait there along with schools of bluefish. A number of shore anglers are also targeting brown sharks on Chappy, with one night hot and the next not so much.

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.
