Nantucket Striper Fishing Professional Review and Guide

"The tendency to group the offshore islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard is without basis. All similarity ends after addressing the fact that they are both islands. Nantucket is more distinctive, slightly more exclusive, and certainly farther to sea. Comparisons between the two crop up incessantly. I would never dare publicly take a position as to which had the better surfcasting. The one arbitrary call I am tempted to make is that there are more bluefish, bonito, and albacore on Nantucket than anywhere else, and this is because of the isle’s proximity to the Gulf Stream, which gives it access to more tropical species and lengthens its season. While nervously plodding the gangway ashore, it’s hard to avoid the sense of having come to some strange and distant place.

Unique to Nantucket is the fact that four out of five hot spots required the use of a buggy. Yet Brant Point, where one is not needed, was rated four by me—even though everyone I spoke to about it gave it five. I simply could not put Brant Point up there with Montauk or Plum Island. This eTrail contains 5 different surfcasting locations for striped bass including Brant Point, Eel Point / Knuckles, Smith Point, Surfside Beach, and Great Point."
