How are fishing conditions in Massachusetts?

Massachusetts Fishing Reports from Our Damn Good Guides. See more reports for Massachusetts.

    Great bass fishing continues with a big push of false albacore and bonito in local waters in the last week. We have started to have shorter fishable windows due to fall weather, but with plenty of bait and warm water temps, we have a lot of fishing left to do.
