The Sounds

3-5lb_bluefish

Nantucket and Vineyard Sound Fishing Report – September 7, 2018

Bonito have been caught at pretty much every hotspot that is mentioned in stories and reports about this species. The reality is if you are there at the right moment, then you will have some good shots. Generally speaking, most of the breaking fish you will find in the sounds are bluefish, with some schools comprised of two to three-pounders and others a mix of six to eight pound fish.

Vineyard and Nantucket Sound Fishing Report – August 2, 2018

One to three-pound bluefish have appeared up and down Vineyard and Nantucket Sounds, especially from Falmouth to Hyannis. They will take pretty much anything shiny and as with any other species of fish you intend to release, switching over to lures with single hooks is the way to go. As a reminder, there is no size limit on bluefish, but there is a ten fish per day bag limit per person.

Vineyard and Nantucket Sound Fishing Report – July 27, 2018

Middle Ground is the only spot where I have heard of stripers being caught on any kind of a consistent basis; we’re talking schoolies up to maybe 24-inches feeding on sand eels and other small bait. Prior to all this nastiness, there were schools of smaller bass throughout the sounds from the Elizabeths to Nobska and down to Popponesset; small, tight groups of terns were the giveaway to their presence.
