"The Fisherman Magazine's" weekly Fishing Report


September 18, 2017:
Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 was standing on a jetty in Martha's Vineyard when I called, but he stopped casting long enough to give me a report. He said that the albie bite went off locally on Monday and has been at least decent all week. Toward the weekend they started to get finicky. They can be found almost anywhere right now, but the waters behind Fishers have been very good, so have the breachways and Watch Hill. Bluefish have been thick at the mouth of the River—typical fall action stuff—they'll take topwaters, chunks or ruin your eel supply. There's been a mix of sizes from cocktails to mid-teen fish. Striper fishing has been kind of tough, there's been some big blitzes of small bass (18 to 30 inches) in several spots, the mouth of the Thames, Fishers, and the CT River. Big bass have been slow, Fishers has had some for the eel slingers after dark and a few have been caught near the River mouth. Porgies have been smoking hot—Harkness, Fort Trumbull, Black Point... and any rock in between. Snappers are all over the place now too.
