I am planning a fall trip to Nantucket and was wondering if there are any fish left at Eel Pt and Great Pt. late in September? I wasn't sure if they had all headed south for the winter by then or not. Thanks.

Nick -

If anything, the fish linger longer in the islands. Sepetember should be prime time for multiple species. Let me see if I can get a freind to give you some details...

Nick - Nantucket in September is probably the best time to fish. Great point is outstanding but don't forget about Brant Point (I think?) Lighthouse right near downtown. Great Point is a tough place to flyfish unless you have a boat in which case you need a co-pilot to maneuver around the rips out there. I remember the Bonito and FA's hitting the beach around Brant at the same time almost every morning.
Good Luck.
