Stripers are all around from the B Buoy all the way to the inner islands.
Plymouth: Captain Bob Avila CaptJohn.com
Buzzards Bay: Captain Dave Altrich Altrich Anglers Charters
It's been another solid week of Stripers, Black Sea Bass, Scup, with a few Blues in the mix. The larger stripers are starting to push into the bay in numbers so the next month will really hit up!
Cape Cod Bay: Captain Joe Penta CaptainJoePCharters.com
Big fish are starting to show at west end of canal. Find the bait balls of pogies and you will find the big stripers crashing on them. Same story going on in the Cape Cod Bay waiting on the big girls to push on through. Find some mackerel outside of your harbor and continue to pound Billingsgate. Get off the shoal into the deeper water for your keeper bass if you find yourself stuck with schoolies.
Vineyard Sound: Captain Skip Bandini TheFishBandit.com
This past week was a great week for fishing with the #DaddyMacLures #BillHurleyLures and #DuckettRods. HI-Low rigs with squid teasers and a strip of squid have also produced great results for Sea Bass up to 20", I'm sure there are bigger ones out there. Find drop offs of wrecks, shoals during the moving tides and drift fish for success.
MIddleground and Hedge Fence shoals have been on fire! Personally we are catching 22-27" stripers, but we have heard of some keepers around.
Most Scup being caught at this time are well over the legal limit and most in the teens up to 16 inches. The average scup have been 13" and above.
Nantucket Sound: Captain Jimmy Koutalakis
General Report: Captain Terry Nugent RipTideCharters.com
Rhode Island, Narragansett Bay: Captain Dan Smith NaturalNineFishing.com
Reports of Weakfish are all throughout the bay making their first appearance in quite a few years. Bluefish are still around in numbers as well as the Striped Bass. Fluke have started to show up in stronger numbers and that's where the weakfish mentioned earlier are usually being found. Pink jigs tipped w sound squid in low light levels have been one of the many tickets for catching one of these weakfish. Tautog season ended this past week and finished out strong and now we must wait until the fall season.
