We have been catching plenty of striped bass at night mostly on live eels. Just before sundown we have been able to catch smaller sized bass on plugs mainly soft plastics like Hogy Originals and surface lures like Jumpin Minnows and other walk-the-dog style lures. With the water temps high your best chance of success will be hitting high tides lat...

Fishing in 2020 has definitely brought new meaning and purpose. Thankfully the light tackle striped bass fishing has been remarkable. Being outdoors and enjoying the nature and wildlife in my opinion has never been more essential than this season. Covid-19 has brought so much uncertainty strife controversy and fear. Fishing brings just the opposit...

Sometimes the striped bass and bluefishing can be frustrating and produce little to no action. Bottom fishing for scup black sea bass fluke and smaller bass and blues can be a lot of fun. Often underrated and seen just for kids or beginners scup and black sea bass can be intense with a lot of action and provide great table fare when you get into t...

There are a lot of smaller striped bass all around the Vineyard. Light tackle action and fly fishing has never been better. Fishing at sunrise and sunset will produce better success. Topwater lures like the Jumpin Minnow and Tackle Angler Crossover have been very successful and produce great strikes on the surface. Softbaits like Hogy Protails and...

July has been a tough month for surf casting on the Vineyard this year. Water is super warm and those big bass just are not around. Plenty of small bass and blues and the Vineyard angler needs to downsize to light tackle right now if you want any action. Continue to hit the south shore at night for any chance of keeper sized bass and best bet woul...

Striped bass are in Vineyard waters!!! Okay they're small but they still pull on light tackle and fly. Bottom water temperatures are still a bit chilly in the high 40's (47-48 degrees) but that is not deterring schoolie size striped bass from feeding on silversides and herring. Hickory shad are mixed in with these pint size bass. It can only impro...
