Still very big blues around, a few miles south of the water tank on the ocean side in Truro, and down by Pamet Harbor and the Path. Getting keeper bass here and there, a lot of shorts though. Couple of larger bonito caught in Cape Cod Bay by Truro, and smaller tuna are starting to show up off the radar ball.

Cape Cod Fishing Reports
The past few days there has been tremendous action on large bluefish. The path in Wellfleet, outside Pamet Harbor, down the backside by the Mission Bell, 12-14 pounders. Also picking up some stripers outside Pamet Harbor and heard of some being caught at the Herring Cove lobster pot line.
Thank God we have started to see some keeper bass in our waters, heavy marks today on the fish finder and it was a mix of blues and stripers. Got a few 29 inchers, a number of 27 inchers, but they were bass!!
Went south towards Wellfleet the last few days and was pleasantly surprised with keeper bass and some good sized bluefish. Nothing too outrageous, but keepers none the less!
Heavy winds on the ocean side prevented us from going down the backside to get those monster blues..Good news was we stayed shallow close to home and found some striped bass, mostly 26-27 inches but a few keepers in the mix.
No tuna, just blues
Had a nice tuna trip today, even though we didn’t see any. Hit Stellwagen and the area east of there, great whale shows, birds, but no tuna. Ran into the blues on the way back by the water tower, ocean side in Truro.
Still more big blues, they hit Race Pt beach yesterday afternoon with a classic beach blitz. Today they were south of Race Pt in deeper water in the morning and in 15 feet of water by the ranger station in the afternoon. Marked a lot of stripers around Race Pt thus afternoon but could not get them to bite.
Still 10-15 pounders around. Cottages, the schoals in Wellfleet, down the backside. Occasional stripers but are more in Barnstable, Nauset, and by the canal.
Some nice fish
Got a couple nice stripers down the backside in deeper water using shad umbrella rigs, also monster blues, 3 feet long and close to 15 pounds. Afternoon was slower, a few schools of bluefish running around fast. Got some at the honey hole by the bath house, soma at Race Pt and a striper over by the cottages to close out the day.

So so fishing the last three to four days. Got some short bass by the cottages, blues down the backside, but overall pretty slow in this neck of the woods.
