Casting: Work along the rocks on either side, concentrating on small rips that form around larger rocks on the corners of both sides of the Hole. Diving birds may give away presence of fish just below the surface anywhere in Quicks Hole – these may be bass, bluefish or false albacore/bonito later in the summer and fall. Soft plastics, swimming plugs, flies, poppers and live eels recommended.
Trolling: Tubes on light lines trolled along the edges of either island; larger lures on wire line throughout the Hole, especially in area of Felix Ledge and North Rock. When heavy currents are present, troll with the tide.
Anchoring/drifting: Fish chunk baits on the bottom at Felix Ledge for stripers; seaworms and squid strips for large fluke and sea bass in 30 feet of the water on the Vineyard Sound side.
- Approximate Lat & Long: 41° 26’ N, 70°48’ W
- Best Tide: Incoming (east) best in spring, outgoing (west) best in summer and fall. Slack tide poor at any point in the season.
- Hazards: Rocks close to either shore; shallow line of rocks approx. 200 yards west of southwest corner of Pasque island. Watch for variations in current flow that indicate barely submerged boulders.
