Fishermen who have gone out to the Monomoy rips have been rewarded with schools of big bass. This has been a welcome change as the bass have been scarce and small for most of the season. Top water was working great.
This has surely been the year for the funny fish! For weeks anglers have been hooking up with spanish mackerel, false albacore and bonito from beaches and boat from Hyannis to the Vineyard to Buzzards Bay. Over the weekend it seemed there were less bonito and spanish mackerel reports from the Craigville area but let me know if I am wrong. We had good reports of albies being caught and lots of blues on the south side. All the usual lures are working; mostly casting with small metals and epoxy jigs.
Green crabs in some rock piles are doing the trick with the tautog. And the scup are biting on seaworms, squid and clams.
