Stripers are In

Captain Lynne Heyer of Cross Rip Outfitters (Nantucket, MA) reports that the fish are in:

Word has gotten out and folks are catching fish all around the Island. Whether it is the South Shore or in either of the Harbors, there is lots of bait and good sized Stripers. I also heard of a Bluefish that was caught. Tackle of choice seems to be Hopkins with a bucktail hook, plastics like Hogy’s or Slug-Go’s. For flies: white Deceivers, Gurglers, and Mushmouths. Get out and wet a line and enjoy our Island and bend a rod.
