Although the few who caught fish would never say, there were keeper bass caught these past few days up here. With the southwest winds happening, night action along stretches of Herring Cove beach up to Wood End produced well, as did some of the Truro Oceanside beaches. Obviously a lot of walking and casting to track the fish down.

Cape Cod Fishing Reports
Catatonic tells me about 30 blues and a few close to keeper sized bass were caught off of Race Pt yesterday, all surfcasting from shore. Maybe the fish are just late getting here? No tuna for us yesterday, hopefully today.
Columbus Day Weekend and hardly anyone out here fishing, a sign of the times. Had an afternoon charter – marked a lot of mackerel, but zilch on stripers and blues, has to be one of the worst fall runs up around here. Tuna still active, that’s good news.
Today is the last day Nelsons will be open for the season, or forever for that matter as most of you know we are shutting the shop down. We will still be doing charters on the Beth Ann, writing fishing reports, as well as the weekly article in the Provincetown Banner. So until next May, be safe, and hopefully healthy, and we’ll see you next year on the Beth Ann.
Big winds finally stated to slow down,no on was really fishing hard so no reports. Going to get the Beth Ann from Rock Harbor and go back to Ptown, will look on my way back for fish in the bay and let you know. Tuna should be hot on the backside.
Heard of some bluefish from the Herring Cove parking lot yesterday. Also, one fellow caught 15 pound bluefish, which also had keeper striped bass mixed in with them, for three straight hours yesterday on a bay beach in Truro.
Ok, no reports as there only are about 3 people fishing up around here. Seriously though, no stripers yet, and blues are now every once in a while, first light on the beach maybe, but we can find them on the boats. But, with 30 plus knot winds from yesterday and for the next five days there will be no fishing from the boats.
Shop open this weekend fri, sat and Sunday, as during the week it doesn’t make sense to stay open for one or two people. Everything left is half off, or “make me an offer”. Still spools of line, leader material, small diamond jigs, a lot of squid jigs!!!, sunglasses, knives, Finstrike and spro hardware and rigs, grunyon type Orange raingear plus a bunch of other miscellaneous stuff.
Big cold winds, water temps down to low sixties, good for tuna, which has been very good, good for stripers, which are still scarce, and bad for blues, yet we found them the last few days in the Herring Cove Race Pt area.
Whoops, missed a few days, probably because I’m at the shop all day due to the high winds the last few days. Blues Were at the breakwater down the east end at high tide this past week, none last night though. Some blues at first light at Race Pt., yet a lot of weed in the water so it’s tough fishing. Big tuna down towards Truro on the ocean side, talking 600 pounders.
Kayakers at Race Pt. Pulled in some keeper stripers yesterday, a very good sign. Blues still in thick.

Bluefish still dominating the scene. Best first thing in the morning, but also in and out of the beaches during the day – right place at the right time. On the boats, blues, very few if any stripers yet, tuna still pretty hot out at the southeast corner of the bank and peaked hill.
