Green Harbor Bait & Tackle

July 17, 2017:
Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me big schools of pogies have moved into the south shore bringing with them some big striped bass. Scott weighed-in a 35-pound striper and several other jumbos this week. The hot striper bite off Race Point has pretty much ended and been replaced with huge schools of bluefish from 8 to 15 pounds. The offshore action is really starting to heat up. The canyons from Veatch to West Atlantis have been giving up yellowfin and big eye tuna as well as white and blue marlin. Warm water has also pushed up on to the shelf and the areas south of the Vineyard like the Dump and the Fingers has been producing bluefin up to 70 pounds and a few yellowfin as well as white marlin. The Regal Sword off of Chatham is loaded with mackerel and other bait fish. Anglers have been jigging up mackerel, drifting with live bait and catching tuna from 80 to 100 inches. Middle Bank and Stellwagen Bank are also starting to become productive with more and more tuna are going to market every day. Scott wanted to give a special shout out to Captain Rich Antonino of Black Rose Fishing Charters for winning the Atlantic Monster Shark Tourney on Martha's Vineyard last week.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me offshore canyon fishing has really picked up. Veatch and the east bight of Atlantis were hot this week with fishermen landing great catches of yellowfin tuna from 50 to 100 pounds. There were also a few giant tuna landed near the edge. There have also been some reports of football tuna from 50 to 80 pounds in the Dumping Grounds and Fingers south of the Vineyard. Inshore fishing for stripers remains excellent at Race Point as well as out along the South Shore beaches from Plymouth to the North River. Inshore cod fishing remains consistent as well as flounder fishing in around the Green Harbor.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported striper fishing has been excellent from Duxbury Beach to High Pines. Preferred baits have been mackerel, clams and tube and worm fishing. Flounder fishing has been hot at the top of the tide inside the Green Harbor jetties, the narrows, and Clark's Island. There have been rumors of a tuna bite up to the north from several reliable sources in Gloucester and one of the store's customers had just returned from Hydrographers Canyon with a nice catch of yellowfin tuna.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported High Pines Ledge was the hot spot this week with several fish in the high 20- to low-30-pound range being caught. Anglers who made the passage across the bay to P-Town all did well catching bass. Fishing for inshore cod on the inside humps and ledges remains steady. Mackerel fishing has been hot one day and cold the next out in front of Green Harbor. The Southwest corner of Stellwagen is supposedly loaded with mackerel. Local tuna fishing is off to a slow start but there are plenty of porbeagle sharks around.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported the inshore fishing was for stripers was excellent this past weekend off of second and fourth cliffs and the North River. The weather and sea conditions have been far from ideal this week. Sea worms and yellow pugs were the most effective baits. Those who did make the trip across the bay to Provincetown caught stripers up to 25 pounds. The ground fishing for haddock is pretty much unchanged from last week. Tuna fishing has not heated up yet but things should change in the very near future.
