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.

Cape Cod Fishing Reports
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
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.
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
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.
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
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.
Late Sunday thru Tuesday look like washouts, wind and rain, but the weatherman suck at predicting out here.
Went tuna wishing yesterday, a lot of whales, saw some hook ups, but no joy for us. Was a real nice day though! Blues still south on the ocean side, but mung has moved into that area making it tough fishing. Friend got some fish down by Pamet Harbor this morning. Haven’t decided what direction to take Saturday morning, guess I’ll have a martini and sleep on it. Oh yea, Happy Labor Day weekend!
Blues and tuna
Took a great family out today, went down the backside and they caught a ton of blues and saw a bunch of whales. Also loaned them my smoker for the week to smoke their bluefish! Signs of schoolie tuna around, many sightings, might try and convince my next charter to go for Charlie!
Blues, bass, bonito, tuna, in that orderNext Page »
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.
