Nantucket Fishing Report – August 20, 2015

Adam Fasci reported that the action on bass for the shore crew has been red hot on the east side of the island from Quidnet to Great Point; early morning and dusk are both fishing well, with live eels a good choice, while soft plastics and small swimming plugs such as Red Fins and the smaller Bomber Long Shot. The rips are pretty much controlled by the bluefish as the boaters are having a tough time getting to any bass that are there. The Bonito Bar is holding a few fish, but it really hasn’t turned on in a big way yet.
