It probably wasn’t eastern European hackers but our old fishing report went dark — for reasons we could not figure out. We’ve replaced it with a new report and hope this works out.
Bass are back and can be found just about anywhere. Twenty or 30-pounders have yet to show up but there are plenty of fish in the 30-35-inch range throughout Nantucket Sound and Buzzards Bay. Action has been consistent throughout the day or night.
Bluefish were right on the heels of bass, with 5 to 7-lb slammers invading the shallow waters off Cotuit and South Cape Beach. There are also schools of blues in Buzzards Bay.
Black sea bass fishing is off the charts, as it has been for a number of years. We’ve had multiple reports of sea bass of up to 25 inches being taken over the wrecks off the Vineyard and Cleveland Ledge.
