Beach anglers are still having fun with albies up around Great Point, but there are also some being caught from…
Capt. Matt Reinemo from the Nantucket Tackle Center reported that there is still some good fishing to be had, with good numbers of bluefish around Sankaty and the rest of the east side of the island, as well as some spots along the southside of the island.
Folks have started catching bass again from the airport east to Sankaty. There are still bluefish being caught on the east side of the island, but most folks have been targeting albies up around Great Point, where four fish from the beach in just over an hour of fishing isn’t uncommon.
The fishing is slowing around the island, but there are definitely some spots that are producing a variety of species. Great Point is probably your best bet for albies, both from beach and boat, while the Bonito Bar has been tough to fish due to the rough conditions that are still around.
It would only make sense that folks on the Grey Lady are more concerned with the wind, waves, and water damage as opposed to fishing. All of us here at Salty Cape are hopeful that damage to property will be limited and that everyone on the island comes through unscathed.
Albies have moved into the harbor, which provides some protection from the wind. With seas running three to four feet around the Bonito Bar and the flats filled with coffee colored water, there isn’t much to tell about that portion of the island.
The Bonito Bar continues to fish very well, with multiple fish being caught on the incoming tide. The Yo-zuri Deep Diving Crystal Minnow is an island favorite, but Epoxy Jigs are also effective along with other traditional funny fish metal jigs such as Deadly Dicks.
