Shark and seal infestations not withstanding, the Outer Beaches are starting to produce some reliable catching for our beach-fishing customers. Good numbers of bass and bluefish are being caught during low-light hours. No real big fish have been reported, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t being caught. Live eels have been the bait of choice and Daiwa SP Minnows or Bombers fished with a teaser have been the favorite for those using artificials.
Tuna reports indicate that things are still a bit slow out there—a fish here and there. Goose customer Warren Waugh caught a 68-incher this week.
On the Bayside, Brewster Flats still has a ton of big bass chasing massive schools of sandeels. There have been some tides where they have been tight lipped and hard to catch, but most of the time they have been very cooperative.
Provincetown (Race Point), which had been red hot, was very quiet this week. There is plenty of bait there, so it’s bound to turn back on again.
Fluke are being taken with decent regularity in Chatham. Plenty of action, but you still need to sort through a lot of just sub-legal fish to get a keeper.
Bluefish are all over the soundside beaches and in the bay—and getting bigger!
