Wayfarer Charters: Martha’s Vineyard Fishing

Martha’s Vineyard fishing stays hot from May, when the big striped bass show up, all the way until the end of Fall when you can fish the Derby for striper, bluefish, bonito, and false albacore. The striped bass are the largest game fish here, and fish in 30-40 pound range are not uncommon in the Spring or Fall. Bluefish are notoriously tough fighters and aggressive when they bite, bluefish fishing peaks in the Summer and Fall. Bonito and false albacore (the larger of the two) are a blast on light tackle. Both of these fish are most prevalent in the Fall but only the Bonito make good table fare. Speaking of bringing home some fillets, the large “doormat” fluke are tasty treats that can be caught in the Summer months.
