Striper fishing is still inconsistent and on the slow side but seems to be picking up just a little. Reports of a Striper blitz aound the Cape Poge Lighthouse on Chappy Sunday afternoon with fish to 30lbs. Also some fish along the Chappy beaches at night. Squibby seems to have gone cold but some reports of decent fish along the north shore. Ashton Hannah weighed in a 35lb fish this morning to take the lead in the Bass Battle but reported very slow action with only one other fish and no other hits. Sengy still has hold a fair number of smaller fish for kayakers and the Menemsha Channel is still good. The good news on all fronts is that many fish being caught are carrying sea lice indicating new arrivals. Still plenty of small Bluefish for anglers around East Chop and State Beach. Look for birds working over bait.
Boat guys are faring a little better and Captain Phil Cronin is putting his anglers on Crocodile Bluefish daily and finding some decent Stripers. Striper fishing at Toms Shoal and the Wasque Rips has been very good. Fluke fishing is still kind of slow.
