The Middle Grounds are beautiful and fish plentiful at dawn

The inshore species of Martha’s Vineyard include Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bonito, False Albacore, Scup, Sea Bass, and Fluke (Summer Flounder).

You will travel from Lake Tashmoo or your preferred destination, and be transported to the spot where the fish are biting.

The best spots for Striped Bass will be Squibnocket, Devil’s Bridge, Noman’s Island, The Elizabeth Islands and the north shore of Martha’s Vineyard. Bluefish can be found in most rips in the waters of Martha’s Vineyard. The prize fighters are the bonito and albies, who will give you a long and thrilling contest, a true fisherman’s challenge to land.
