Green Harbor Bait & Tackle

June 18, 2018:
Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported the local High Hooks Anglers Striper Tournament had good results this weekend. Of the 30 boats participating, 12 produced 20-plus-pound stripers. Top boats included Storm Cloud with a 32-pounder, Number One Contender with a 29.3-pound striper and Bob Wadsworth finished near the top with 29-pound fish. Most of the action was across the bay at Race Point out in the deeper water. Tube and worm fishermen crushed the stripers between Beetle Rock and Bluefish Cove. There was also a 20-pound bass that was caught at High Pines on a live mackerel. Flounder fishing in Green Harbor remains excellent as does the offshore haddock fishing. Tuna fishermen are still looking for the first rod reel fish for 2018 as of the writing of this report.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle told me as of 3 PM Saturday there have been no confirmed bluefin tuna landed on rod and reel. There were a few close encounters around Wildcat and the Regal Sword reported late this week, however, as the east wind turned to the southwest. The Fishtails canyon outlook is very promising for yellowfin, big eye, and bluefin according to Scott's sources. If the weather cooperates hopefully we will have some reports from the edge next week. Inshore fishing has greatly improved after the east wind on chunks of mackerel and fresh clams. Some of the biggest bass of the week came from a small group of very talented anglers who work topwater plugs. They had some very impressive catches this week leaving bait fishermen scratching their heads. The haddock bite has slid east to deeper water as the new moon passes and water temperatures will rise. Flounder fishing is excellent.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported haddock on the Southwest corner of Stellwagen Bank was the hot spot for the best fishing early this week. Mid-week the migration trended in to deeper water to the east. 30- to 40-inch bass have been landed off Race Point for a few lucky anglers on live mackerel. Bigger bass have been landed locally between Duxbury and North river by some talented topwater specialists. With the expected northeast wind forecasted the next few days the near-shore flounder fishing will continue to entertain all anglers.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported the haddock bite on Stellwagen Bank continues to be awesome. Fishermen are getting their limit in less than one tide cycle. Squid was the bait of choice this week. Local fishermen are finding keeper bass outside the Green Harbor jetties and Duxbury was a challenge this week however there are good numbers of high twenty-inch fish that local anglers are catching using for Bill Hurley soft plastics. Green Harbor has some of the best flounder fishing in the state. Come into and Captain Scott and his crew will show you where to fish, what to use and how to use it.

    Scott from Green Harbor Bait and Tackle reported both the North and South Rivers are loaded with herring, and striper fishing is improving every day. One of Scott's customers has enjoyed some good luck using Bill Hurley's Paddle Tails as well as live mackerel catching stripers. Flounder fishing in the harbor is excellent with fish up to 18-½ inches landed this week. The striper fishing at the east end of the Canal is improving and was red hot on Sunday morning. The offshore fishing for haddock is off the charts, and there have even been several reports from reliable sources that school bluefin have appeared on the Northwest corner of Stellwagen Bank.
