In recent years, Nantucket has been known mostly for the bluefish that patrol the eastern shore near Sankaty Light. Great Point is also a known bluefish haunt. In the fall, try the western shore for bonito and albies in places like Tuckernuck and the Bonito Bar.

During the first few weeks of August 2016, bonito have filled in around the usual haunts surrounding Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard’s outer shoals. Anglers stopping on their way back from offshore have had no trouble picking a few up for the grill. Capt. Mike Hogan and Capt. Shaun Ruge went out in search of some morning fish southwest of the Nantucket islands on Wednesday August 10th and after some searching, the bonito bite did not disappoint. The troll and cast routine was productive (troll jigs and swimmers to locate, saturate the area of a caught fish or bait concentrations with blind casts for more then move on).
