Monomoy Today

Had a guest out on my boat today and on our way down to the rips we spotted birds working along the shore of South Monomoy. Turned out to be small blues, 3 to 5 pounds, and they provided plenty of action. There were many pods of fish over at least a quarter to a half of a mile stretch of shoreline in 4 to 7 feet of water. They stayed up for at least 2 hours.

The interesting thing, unless you're looking for blue fish, is what they were feeding on. One of the first fish into the boat spit up the following: Juvie herring ( 1" to 1.5"), baby bunker (1" to 2"), a sand eel (3"), bay anchovies (1.5"), 3 squid (3") and a crab (dime size) and many of the other fish we landed spit up similar combinations . It's been a long time since I've seen such a variety of bait in the same area. I didn't see any of the silversides that Juro mentioned in Monomoy Yesterday but that was on the ocean side I believe. If the bait stays around there should be some great fishing over the next few weeks.
