Nantucket Fishing Report | August 11, 2016

Adam Fasci from the Nantucket Tackle Center reported that the Bonito Bar is red hot, with the incoming tide fishing best and Yo-zuri Crystal Minnows the top lure choice. A few bonito have also been caught around Great Point as the action is only beginning there. Bluefishing is excellent from boat or shore along the southside of the island, but bass have been tough to fish. Some of the charterboats are fishing out around Sankaty and in many cases they are targeting the large numbers of big fluke and sea bass in that area, especially if the striper action has been slow.
