Monomoy Fishing Report – September 21, 2017

The last report I received concerning this area was that albies had arrived in good numbers, with one flyrodder managing 11 around Point Rip. In years past, it hasn’t been uncommon to find albies holding in deeper water off the east side of South Monomoy, where folks have done well either dredging with fast sink fly lines or various type of small bait jigs allowed to fall to where the fish are holding. Sand eels are typically the most common small bait that Monomoy is known for at this time of year, but peanut bunker have been around in good numbers as well.

As far as bass goes, it’s hard to say what the situation will be once Jose moves out of here; personally, I believe the fishing is going to be pretty darn good as the rips should clear relatively quickly and there is still enough bait around to hold the bass, including some mackerel and pogies.
