Eastman Sport & Tackle

June 18, 2018:
Jim from Eastman's Sport and Tackle has gone over to the dark side as we learned that he was playing golf on a perfectly good Saturday morning. John said the fishing was hot and cold and he believed they were still getting migratory fish moving through which provided good fishing for a few days, then spotty the next. Woods Hole is still giving up some nice bass to live scup, pogies and eels with the largest fish in the 20-pound class. Middle Ground has been producing a lot of school bass with an occasional fish up to 32 inches this past week. The blues are mostly on the sound side so far with Poppy and the Horseshoe being the most productive locations for alligator hunters.

    The striper fishing has finally picked up, and Jim at Eastman's Sport and Tackle has been receiving reports of some very good numbers of stripers on Middle Ground and off Nobska Point. Most of those stripers have been from 30 to 35 inches with a few to 38. Black sea bass fishing has been red hot on most rockpiles and wrecks with good report of 18- to 20-inch knuckles around the west end of the Canal. There were very few reports of blues until the weekend when choppers moved into Poppy and the rips offshore.

    Woods Hole has been giving up quite a few bass in the 20-pound class to those anglers live-lining scup along with one skipper snapping jigs on 90 feet of wire and taking a few fish up to the mid 20-pound class. According to Jim at Eastman's Sport and Tackle there are also bass and some legal fluke in and around Middle Ground, but the weed problem makes it difficult to present a clean offering. Black sea bass and scup are everywhere and there is also word of pogies working in the Megansett channel which has been holding legal stripers.

    It was a very good week if you were a black sea bass fisherman according to Jim at Eastman's Sport and Tackle who cited reports and photos of big purple heads to 23 inches from Vineyard and Nantucket Sound. There are some blues in Vineyard Sound, but both sounds are loaded with stripers from 22 to 26 inches and the occasional 30-inch fish. He has seen some small keepers up to 38 inches from Woods Hole and off Nobska. The scup and sea bass in the west end and along the rocky west Falmouth shore are providing some good action and terrific eating.
