The Elizabeths Fishing Report – October 27, 2016

Phil Stanton told me that he has pulled his boat for the season, something many other folks have done as their attention has turned to hunting deer, or as is the case with Phil, traveling to shoot ducks in spots near and far, including California and North Carolina. Before the big boat was put away, Phil caught some really big bluefish, upwards of 15-pounds, in Woods Hole.

Last Saturday, my friend, Capt. Warren Marshall and his son, David, took advantage of some good early morning weather and managed to find bass, blues, and even a couple of albies. Lackey’s had some small schools of albies chasing small bait and that’s where Warren caught his funny fish, but Robinson’s was even better to David, who managed a slam on the fly rod.

The water temperature in the Hole was 57 degrees today, still within the preferred range of stripers, but the recent run of cold nights locally should encourage more fish movement down and through the islands.
