Every so often I like to invite a My Fishing Cape Cod member with me on my fishing excursions. Earlier in the season I fished with MFCC member Jeff Richard and we did real well from the beach on Outer Cape Cod (you can read that report here).

Recently Dick Glockner, who has been supporting the MFCC community since this site began 3 years ago, let me know how much he would appreciate a fishing trip with me on my boat the Miss Loretta.

Dick is one of the nicest guys around. He treats people the way I feel people ought to always be treated, and I really appreciate that.

Outer Cape Cod Fishing Report | July 21


Finding striped bass off Cape Cod during late July usually involves fishing deep cool waters. For the most part keeper size striped bass abandon the rips and shallow areas (at least during the day) and stick to the 50 ft and greater depths.

Of course there are plenty of exceptions, but for the most part this seems to be the general pattern the fish like to follow.

For the past several weeks big schools of stripers have been holding far east of outer Cape Cod in water as deep as 500 feet. These fish are too far offshore to legally target, but fortunately for outer Cape Cod anglers this all seems to be changing, and bass are now venturing in closer to the beach.

Cape Cod Canal Fishing Report | July 19

featured 1

A lot of folks were somewhat pessimistic about this past spring at the Cape Cod Canal. Compared to the previous few springs, this past May and June were not quite as productive. The easy “blitz” fishing of years past just didn’t materialize as many had hoped and expected.

The good news is that for those who are still sticking it out at the Canal, the fish are finally cooperating.

In this report I will share what I know has been happening recently down at the Big Ditch. If you’re able to fish the Canal this weekend and coming week, I feel you will have as good a chance as any of hooking up.

The wind was howling earlier this week, but now the weather’s settled and conditions are absolutely picture perfect for boating and fishing. I feel that summer is settling into the region and that striped bass in particular are entering into their “somewhat reliable” summertime routines.

In this report I’ll share with you what I personally know is happening right now in the fishing world here on Cape Cod. I will also share some ideas with you I feel will help you find a few fish this weekend and into next week, both from shore and from boat.

In addition we’ll also discuss:

  • How to find and catch striped bass from the beach right now on Cape Cod
  • Ideas on where to go fishing from your boat
  • 2 specific techniques that usually work pretty well during July at the Cape Cod Canal

Cape Cod Fishing Report July 7 | Wind, Dolphins & Bass Up To 25lbs


The flag at the marina was whipping good. My father and I could tell that this was going to be a very bumpy, brisk and salty trip. Commercial striped bass fishing is still an important source of income for me, so I really wanted to get on the water yesterday despite the 30 knot wind.

The success of this blog has helped make the income I earn through commercial bass fishing less important, and I am very happy that thanks to the support of MFCC members I no longer am running charters, working for a moving company, selling insurance, or performing dozens of other odd jobs to make ends meet.

I really appreciate your support because without the monthly contributions of more than 500 members I simply would not be doing what I am doing. I thought about all this yesterday as my father and I trudged through the slop and wind.

You wouldn’t be able to tell from how my Dad is dressed in the above photo, but this week was quite warm on the water! It really did feel like summer out there and the fish seem to be behaving like it’s summer as well.

In this MFCC members’ fishing report I will recap what I personally experienced this week on the water. I will also share with you some tidbits of knowledge about what’s been happening down at the Cape Cod Canal, and in various other popular Cape Cod fishing destinations.
