Belsan Bait & Tackle

September 18, 2017:
Jake from Belsan's Bait reported striper fishing is fantastic. There are tons of mackerel and peanut bunker for the bass to feed on and keep them in the area. Peggotty Beach has been having surface feeds almost every morning. Bluefish are very scarce and flounder fishing in the harbor is very slow. All the cliffs and beach areas remain very productive. Most of the fish are between 25 and 32 inches but there are some jumbos in the mix. Bluefish have been very spotty. The offshore action for bluefin tuna has been excellent.

    Mason from Belsan's Bait reported striper fishing remains stellar. There are tons of school-sized fish to be caught. Mason said it is a about a 6-to-1 ratio for schoolies to keepers and 15-to-1 for a really nice fish. The bass are still in skinny water. All of the best fishing is no more than 25 yards from shore in less than 10 feet of water. Mackerel are everywhere from the Scituate Bell to a mile offshore. Bluefish are very scarce and flounder fishing in the harbor is very slow.

Both shore and boat fishermen are doing great with most of best fishing being in 5 to 8 feet of water. There are some bluefish out in the deeper water and along the offshore ledges.

    Mason from Belsan's Bait reported that mackerel are so thick you could almost walk on them between the Scituate Bell to the mouth of the North River. Striper fishing remains off the charts. Cliffs 1 through 4 and the entire rocky coastline have been extremely productive in shallow water.

    Pete from Belsan's Bait reported August 2017 has been the best August he can remember in over 10 years. Bass fishing is excellent! Mackerel are plentiful and easy to catch. The rocky coastline including 1st through 4th cliffs and Tobias Ledge has been giving up big numbers of nice stripers. There have been many fish up to 30 pounds and a few into the 40-pound class. Bluefish have been spotty around Scituate and Cohasset but has been excellent between Green Harbor and Duxbury.
