Monomoy Fishing Report – October 2, 2015

Monday saw large schools of very active albies from the mouth of Stage Harbor all the way out to the rips starting at the point and moving east, but apparently they had lockjaw. Last weekend, some nice bass were caught in the rips, with live eels apparently producing the largest fish.

It might be that everybody is concentrating on albies, but there has been little or no talk about bass in the rips. Last year the state had no success finding bass during their tagging trips in September and October and it appears that may be the case again this year.

With reports of outstanding albie fishing between the point and Bearse’s, I went to Chatham today and got skunked, but some other charters out there reported 10 fish trips. None of the rips we checked out had any bass or any real sign of life, other than some bait. We did see a few folks pick up an albie here and there blindcasting, but there were no working birds or real surface feeds.

The fishing for bass in the rips has definitely picked up recently, with the falling tide producing best as boaters have reported consistent action from day-to-day. One of the most effective techniques has been stemming the tide and drifting “rip flies” back into the white water on lead core line.

On my last trip out east, we found good numbers of very fussy bass at Bearses and apparently the fishing has been hot and cold based on the fishes’ moods. We were fishing on a calm, sunny day with incredibly clear water and the bass were just milling around. They were, however, feeding on the surface at times and a quick, accurate cast produced results.
