    Dick's B&T on Martha's Vineyard said it was a pretty good week for albies, especially off Edgartown where albies and even some bonito were taken! Monday was red hot in that area, no bonito have been reported since the blow on Tuesday but the albies were still biting right through Friday morning. Schoolie action remains pretty good on island as well. No one has reported catching any sizeable stripers but if you fish the inlets and the harbors, there are plenty of small bass around still. Bait is everywhere, squid, butterfish, sand eels, peanuts, anchovies... they're all here and the fish that are still around are loving it.

    Doug from Dick's B&T on Martha's Vineyard said that there are still albies being caught from a few island locations, they are sticking with the bait. Edgartown Harbor and Menemsha have been the hotspots, but a few have come from Chappy and other locations as well. Small blues up to 6 pounds with occasional fish over 10 pounds have been crashing many local beaches this week. Schoolie bass are thick in many places, check any pond, inlet or harbor for your best shot. There is still tons of bait around; sand eels, peanuts, anchovies... even squid and a few adult bunker. Hunting is taking over for many island surfcasters so the reports are becoming a little tougher to come by overall. Shore togging has been very good as well.

    Doug from Dick's B&T on Martha's Vineyard said the albies are starting to thin out but they are still being caught from many of the south side inlet jetties. There have still been some bonito around as well. Baitfish are still plentiful too; peanut and adult bunker, squid and silversides are easy to come by. The island is surrounded by school bass; you can find them almost anywhere, but the harbors and ponds have been red hot. There have been some 25- to 30-pound bass coming from the surf this week too; no details offered, but they are out there. Blues have been tough to find all year. Hickory shad have been showing up this week too.

    Dick's B&T on Martha's Vineyard said the albie fishing has still been very good at places like Menemsha and Edgartown Harbor. Bass reports tell of lots and lots of schoolies, very few fish over 24 inches though. Bluefishing is up and down, but they are still around. Tog fishing has been great for the shore guys this week.
