False Albacore "Fat Alberts" "Little Tunnies"
September and October
These fish rank among the best light tackle species in the world. Lightning fast with the build of a Tuna, they have provided joy and frustration for many anglers. With great surface action, and a limited time window each season, False Albacore have attracted a following that chase them to the Cape and Islands late August and September.
The last 5 to 10 years has made Nantucket one of the best areas to target these beauties. We hope you come find out for yourself how exciting it can be to hear your line scream from your reel. We also invite you to see Nantucket during September after much of the on-land chaos of the Summer has passed.
