Re: surf fishing Nantucket in Oct.
I'm headed over to nantucket last week in June. Annual week with the family ... two grown sons who fish with me and make sure the old man doesn't disappear in the night.
Used to fish Nantucket in late September but now we shoot for June. We fish nights now since daylight bass are mostly a story someone else tells or they are boat bass. Beach access exists all around the island except in a few places... so bummed that Great Point is occupied by seals and is just an old story that old men tell about. Also bummed out that you can't get down to the rip at Surfside without a long walk. But we know about long walks. With two arthritic hips long walks are now also old stories. I booked what I could get for the house we wanted and we are messed up for tides. I like the south shore ocean in June with a midnight tide. same for North side at Eel Point. High tide after sunrise has not worked for me. Guess we go figure what to fish around low tide. Inner harbor calling.
I'm open to talking about spots on nantucket because spot burning here really won't draw a crowd. LOL. I may regret that. Anyone want to talk about where they fish?
For the amount of time I've spent at each I'd say I've done much better on East Beach on Chappaquidick than anywhere on Nantucket. But Nantucket is where we started in 1972 and where we return to try to catch those elusive linesiders.
