Martha’s Vineyard Fishing Report – August 16, 2018

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.

Martha’s Vineyard – July 20, 2018

Shore anglers have been getting into some good-sized fish around Chappy, including East Beach and Wasque. A number of charterboats out of Oak Bluffs have been returning with smaller blues, mainly in the four to five-pound range. Some folks are picking at fluke and sea bass in the deeper waters off the west end of Middle Ground; check out Rick Fehon’s report on bass fishing around MG last weekend in the Sounds section for more information on these waters.

Martha’s Vineyard Fishing Report – July 13, 2018

Some fish are being caught at Squibnocket by the Menemsha charterboats, mainly jigging wire and parachutes, as well as spoons, while Jim Young in Falmouth told me that he heard Wasque had slowed down. The bass fishing at Middle Ground has slowed significantly, with the vast majority of stripers having been pushed into deeper water by the increasing temperatures and the heavy boat traffic.

Martha’s Vineyard Fishing Report – June 22, 2018

As far as beach fishing goes, some folks who have special access to Squibnocket Beach did well during their recent vacation tossing topwater plugs, including a number of 26 to 30-inch bass, topped by a 38-incher. One interesting observation they offered is that unlike past years when pencil poppers were very productive, they only had half-hearted responses to them this year.
