Got into some real nice bass on live macs, it had been about a week! Way down the ocean backside to get them though. Was going back yesterday morning but ran into the bass right at Race Pt. There were a bunch on the bottom but all we could get were a couple of shorts, saw some other boats get one or two but the fish seemed not ready to bite. Later in the day the kayak crew hammered them there.

Sad but true, yesterday just was bad, I would say sucked. Covered a lot of ground and saw next to nothing, plenty of bait but no fish? Friend in Wellfleet said same thing about the shoals, something just ain’t right.
A slower couple of days. Did have a massive school of bluefish off of the race pt beaches on Sunday, but on Monday only a few had stuck around here and there. Bass are harder and harder to find, word was of a big school of big fish miles down the backside yesterday afternoon.
Had to travel far today but got into some real nice striped bass action. Live macs the key again, but deadly dicks and daddy Mac jigs worked as well.
While we were out on a bird charter on the bank – some stripers down by the path in Wellfleet, another person got into them way down the backside on live macs, but we didn’t see anything when we were down there, but they move fast and there’s a lot of ocean, and Ralph on the Odyesea got a 275 pound tuna yesterday. And that’s all the news that fit to print.
Some slowwww days, cold water still pushing the fish away. Some down the shoals, gotta search and pick here and there. We will see what today brings.
Weird few days, fish, no fish, fish etc etc. Live macs still the way to go. Water temps today went down to high 40’s due to winds, fish scattered. Were a lot of fish in the bay this morning, in two feet of water close to shore. Then this afternoon nothing! Wierd
Mixed results as summer waves its wand. Mornings are the key, but even then you have to search to find the fish, even the mackerel for bait. Macs up in Ptown harbor one day, then nothing, then herring in 150 ft of water off Of race pt for bait – go figure. Kayaks did excellent the other morning at race pt. Blues starting to show up, some big ones the other day. Big bluefin tuna around, a few 500 pounders caught Friday.
Fish are still around, just a lot harder to find. The bigger schools have been broken up by the commercial guys fishing them, so the fish are in smaller, scattered schools. Fish in all the usual haunts and have seen some move over toward the cottages. Live mackerel and small live pollock found up deep in Ptown harbor for live lining.
Sorry for the late posts. Had a few storms, plus some repairs on the boat. Fish are still around, but have entered summer so the beach is tough fishing. Buy a kayak as those folks can get out to the big fish. Still loads of fish around, live mackerel best bet, dead macs next, vertical jigging then umbrella rigs. Same old spots but a school of rally big fish way down the ocean backside.
