Butterfish, peanut bunker, mackerel, adult menhaden, silversides, juvenile bay anchovies and butterfish. All this great bait in the water as we approach the end of summer, it almost makes you wish you were a striped bass. You would sure be eating well. And that's the idea behind the Fall Run.

It’s that great moment in August when bait is plentiful in the water and bonito are appearing. Big bass are in the Canal, bluefish are in Buzzards Bay, and we are even hearing reports of that unusual visitor, juvenile king mackerel. Here's this week's Fishing News.
