The bass leader board hasn't moved in a while. Norm is still holding first with his almost 40 pounder! John brought in a nice fish and took first on the blues board.

The North Side has been a great spot for fluking. Sand eels and squid have been producing some nice keepers. Anglers have been doing pretty well in the channel in Barnstable Harbor. The Harbor is also producing lots of schoolie bass. The best bet for keeper bass is probably the Race and The Path. Dave Brown of Grumpy Tuna Charters managed to hook into a 36 incher on the fly the other day! Tube n' worm at the fingers is a good idea for the stripers, as well as trolling a bunker spoon. We heard of a man hooking into a blue-fin tuna with a bunker spoon while trolling for bass.

If blue fishing is your thing then you are obviously fishing anywhere in Nantucket Sound. Look for the birds and throw your lure anywhere in their general direction. Amy & Travis went out to Succonnesset Wednesday afternoon and got into a blue fish feeding frenzy. Three/four pounders which are perfect for the smoker! Any lure would have worked, deadly dicks, surface tension, smack-its, etc...

Some anglers have had good luck with the fluke over at Succonnesset. 23/24 inchers with some shorts mixed in. Bass fisherman who can go a little further in their boats have also been doing well over at Noman's. Chunking Poagies and throwing Slug-go's have been working.

Shore anglers have been doing well off the South Side beaches. Loads of scup using sea-worms or squid. Schoolie bass early morning and blues in the evening. The snapper blues have arrived in the harbors and are a lot of fun to catch using the snapper poppers.

The tuna bite has been hit or miss. Crab ledge and BC buoy have been the choice spots recently. See photo below of Rob who landed a 73 inch Tuna on light spinning gear a couple of weeks ago!

Freshwater fishing has still been going strong! The largemouth bite has been very active. The usual artificial worms working well at Long Pond. Shiners are working very well at Hathaway's and the trout bite at Hamblin's has been great!

Get out on the water and catch some fish!
