Taylor Trudel at Dick’s Bait & Tackle in Edgartown said that bass fishing on the island has ranged from mainly schoolies inside the salt ponds and the beaches along State Road, with the Big Bridge popular because it’s easy to access. Small soft plastic paddletails are a good choice when there are mainly schoolies in the mix. Some larger stripers are being caught down Chilmark and Aquinnah way, where Danny plugs and needlefish are favored by the regulars, along with Daiwa SP Minnows. A few bluefish have been caught down Chappy way, but nothing of size and no real numbers. When it comes to squid, many folks are concentrating down off State Beach and inside Edgartown Harbor, with one night producing five gallon buckets and the next absolutely nothing, a product of tide and wind conditions.

The shore folks are having a blast with all of the striper in the 24 to low 30-inch class, from the harbors to the bridges to the ponds. The boat crowd is also finding a fair amount of 28 to 32-inch fish on the rips.
