The Sounds Updated Fishing Report

Many boats have been struggling to catch bass, with only some low 30-inch fish being caught on wire and jigs. Hedge Fence is filled with small bluefish as well as some bonito. There are still bluefish being caught along the southside beaches from South Cape to Chatham. Ground fishing is slow.

South Side Best Spring Fishing Spots for Striped Bass Around Cape Cod

If given the choice, the South Side of Cape Cod is a great early season area to play. You have a lot of options in this area in terms of places to hide from bad weather, various terrains and bait sources and plenty of Plan B opportunities if the striper fishing doesn’t pan out in the form or large scup and sea bass in the surrounding areas.

Vineyard Sound False Albacore

When false albacore finally show up in numbers to chase peanut bunker and bay anchovies, it’s one of the most visually exciting fisheries Cape Cod has to offer. On a beautiful mid-September day in Vineyard Sound, we joined Capt. Jamie Simmons of Buzzards Bay Outfitters for one of the best days of albie fishing we’ve had all season.

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.
