Storm has passed

Date: August 28, 2020

Tuesday August 4th

As the storm blows through we have time to catch up on our reports . Striped Bass were still a challenge. There have been days when we found them, but couldn’t get them to bite. Hopefully the storm and the passing full moon will stir the pot. Black Sea Bass and Porgies are still a dependable bag limit south of Marthas Vineyard. There have been a good number of Tautog, mostly shorts, mixed in. The Bag limit for Tautog went back  up to 3 fish per person on August first, so we will be targeting them with crab baits .  We have been catching Fluke around Onset. We can usually get a few but haven’t been able to get bag limits . Lobsters are at their peak in our traps now. Black Sea Bass season ends on September 8th , so please make reservations before. And just when I thought I had seen everything, one of my first time fishermen catches a Remora. These are the fish that stick to the bottom of big sharks. No one I have spoken to had ever caught one around here. Every day is an adventure
