Cape Cod Fishing Reports

I think it’s done
October 16, 2016

Went out yesterday, down the backside, the Race, Herring Cove, Wood End, no real marks and no real fish, I think for striped bass and blues we are done for the year. We did get 12 inch schoolie bass at Wood End, but not enough to take folks out on a charter for!

The Beth Ann will still be doing full or per person tuna charters. Eight to ten hours, up to four people, $1050, or per person, only two people per trip, $250 per person.

Unless something really crazy comes up, this will be the last report of the season. Time to take some walks, read some books, drink some scotch, and relax for six months. Thanks to all for a great season, stay healthy and safe and we will see you in May.

Still fish around
October 14, 2016

Just a general fish report.

Schoolie tuna still very hot up along the southern edge of the bank, as well as further east. Giants still being taken in Cape Cod Bay, close to Ptown, look for the fleet. Are not 80 boats there like a week ago, but maybe twenty or so. I had one on for thirty minutes, was solo and the fish went under the boat and broke off.

Still catching the occasional blues and stripers. Spread around, but the Race Pt. area and down the backside.

October 4, 2016

After about five days of crazy northeast winds and rain, it finally stopped. Boats back out on the water, a lot of giant bluefin tuna around. Not many bass nor blues, but haven’t really been looking yet after the weather, focused on tuna yesterday. No joy for us but did see 5-6 Giants caught.

Apologies for late reports
September 29, 2016

Big winds, not a lot of fishing. Water temps dropped to 55, from 67, blues disappeared, bass still sparse. This week predicted to be more crazy winds and rain and temps, can’t predict what’s going to happen. I would just stay the course and come up and fish, beach or boat. Tuna was hot before the winds, WILL be hotter after the winds.

September 21, 2016

Had some more really big blues today, solid 15 pounders, in front of the ranger station and down by the mission bell, on the boat. Saw about four vehicles down by the mission bell on the beach, guessing the blues are hitting the beach their in the early mornings.

Tuna and blues
September 20, 2016

Up this way that’s still the name of the game. Tuna out on Stellwagen Bank, live bait best bet, large mackeral out there. Big blues still down around the water tower on the ocean side. Have to travel for stripers, Nauset, Chatham, over by the canal.

September 16, 2016

Pretty consistent bluefish blitzes off of the ocean facing beaches over the past week, try it a few times and chances are you will find one. Tuna bite continues to be pretty hot out on Stellwagen Bank, live bait, vertical jigging or casting poppers.

Hot Tuna Continues
September 12, 2016

A lot of catches today, Monday. Most in the one hundred pound range, but know of one in the 750 pound area. Fish are scattered between the Bank and the golf ball. Blues still down by water tower on ocean side, a few scattered in the cottages and Pamet.

September 10, 2016

The last few days have seen a lot of tuna being caught, spread out from the sw corner to the se corner to peaked hill bar. Some Giants in the mix as well. Live bait or heavy duty spinning doing it over trolling spreader bars.

Bluefish still in large abundance, mostly 12-16 pounders.

Fall is here
September 9, 2016

Word of some of the “smaller”tuna showing up close to us, trying for them tomorrow morning. Still big bluefish and occasional stripers from the boar as well as surfcasting.
