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. Whether they will still be there after all this blowing is anybody’s guess, but the cooling water and weed, along with suspended sand, could be a problem.

Last weekend, some nice bass were caught in the rips, with live eels apparently producing the largest fish. Arriving before first light has been key to success on bass all season long around Monomoy this year, with your typical visual topwater bite on soft plastics and plugs hard to come by this season – at least on a consistent basis.
