On MVY the Stripers have invaded the island, especially wherever there are rocks on the northshore. Plenty of small bait and the Bass are feeding with gusto. I went out last evening before sunset and caught double keepers on around the tenth cast; the fishing only got better as it got dark. Bombers[one of my favorites] and Darters, especially the Yozuri and Super Strike versions are the go-to lures right now. Incidentally, I use a Red Gill dropper with the Bomber. What I find interesting over the years is that the larger fish will invariably be on the dropper and the smaller of the two on the Bomber. I’d be interested in comments on that.
Chappy has been on the slow side; Blues are noticible by their absence. ET harbor is loaded with Squid and the Scup fishing is good. Overall, it bodes well for the flyrod tourney this weekend!
Over in America, there are Blues at the west end of the canal; a ten pounder was weighed in at Red Top. The Bass scene is mostly a night fishery, hopes are high for the weekend. There are plenty of Pogies, Mackerel and Herring around to lure in the fish. In Buzzards Bay, Sea Bass, Scup and Blues prevail.
Down in Rhode Island a 32 lb Striper was snagged using a live eel at the Pt Jude lighthouse . Ninigret Pond is loaded with Sand Eels and Stripers. Blues are scarce, Fluke are hot with an 11.12 lb fish weighed in at Breachway B & T. Stripers are wandering in and out of the pond at the C’Town breachway.
