One of the finest sights in fishing is a school of bass busting on the surface of the water under a widespread flock of wheeling and diving gulls. Well it doesn't get any better right now at the Bearse's Shoals area off of Monomoy Island. The squid are moving out of Nantucket Sound and as they cross the shoals, the big schools of striped bass congregate there and feed heavily. This area is actually quite large, and covers the areas to the east, west and south of the tip of Monomoy Island, aproximately 2 miles in each of those directions. The bass have been there about a week now and will most likely stay at least a week more, before they slowly move into the waters to the east and south east of Chatham Harbor.
The tuna bite has been quite consistent as well, once you can get away from the bluefish. The fish are actually of a quite nice size too, between 45 and 65 inches, with an occasional one of over 70 inches ! Lately the fish have been biting better on the second slack of the day.
