Cape Cod Fishing Reports

Big fish
May 25, 2017

Have finally arrived up here. From Wood End to Race Pt and beyond, consistent action, now mostly keeper sized, up to 30 pounds plus.

Mostly small ones
May 19, 2017

Tons of schoolie bass around, mainly close to the beach, you can spot the schools easily enough in the water. Some keepers here and there but not many. The BIG bass are still closer to the canal and Sandwich area, moving this way.

Haddock still hot on the bank, going up there today.

May 13, 2017

Went up to the bank today, little north of the southwest corner. Really well on haddock, a few good sized ones, but a bunch of shorts as well. Caught a ton of good sized cod but had to throw them all back, can’t keep them.

Beach folks caught hundreds of stripers today, 99% of them shorts though.

It’s started!
May 6, 2017

Happy Spring. Schoolie stripers have been up here for about two weeks now, bayside and Race Pt., heavy numbers of fish. Some fish being caught close to keeper size. Haddock very thick up on the bank, 15 fish per person, 17 inch minimum.

Launching the Beth Ann Monday, call for haddock, striper or flounder trips.

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.
