“Monster” Scup, Tog & The Complete Update On The Bite In Buzzard’s Bay

buzzards bay scup fishing

The wind was howling as my friend Jason Mazzola and I traveled through the Cape Cod Canal on his boat the “Sue-Sea-Q” south towards Buzzard’s Bay. This was going to be a wet and sloppy fishing trip.

The rain began to pour as we approached the Railroad Bridge. This was my first time on the water this season and I was very happy, despite the windy and rainy conditions.

Whitewater Rapids, Schoolie Safe-Havens & More Backwater Exploring

wewe 1

I thought long and hard about where to fish today. I consulted all available resources, hoping to glean some tidbit of information that would lead me to that first big batch of migratory stripers.

After spending 15 minutes surveying a particular estuary using Google Earth, I discovered a hidden access point that would drop me off at the uppermost reaches of an estuary that is known for early season striper action.

I arrived at the spot just before sunrise, feeling very eager to check this area out.

Buzzard’s Bay Fishing Report | Day 2

DCIM100GOPRO

The mid-morning sun felt incredible. Spring is most certainly here on Cape Cod!

Cormorants were diving in front of me and a sea gull was cracking open a mussel behind me. There was plenty of life around and the atmosphere even felt fishy.

I had once again decided to fish Buzzard’s Bay, which has been a perennial late-April striper hot spot for me since I was a kid.

Buzzard’s Bay Fishing Report | Part 1

buzzards bay fishing report

Fishing Buzzard’s Bay is a great idea right now, because striped bass often show up in Buzzard’s Bay before they show up in other areas of the Cape. In recent years my first striper of the season has been caught in Buzzard’s Bay.

In this trip I fished numerous locales throughout Buzzard’s Bay, in search of my first striped bass of the 2014 season.

Extended Cape Cod Sea Run Trout Fishing Report

There was not a soul around as I made my way into the woods.

It was only minutes before I saw another hawk, and then an osprey flying high in the sky.

I feel that having these birds around is a good sign because they too are hoping to catch fish.

Buzzards Bay Fishing Report | Week of 9/24

Fall is here on Buzzard’s Bay and the water is finally cooling off.

With large striped bass well over the 30 pound class on the move through the Bay, and schoolie stripers getting active in the estuaries, right now is a great time to be fishing Buzzard’s Bay.

For example, a friend of mine called me yesterday to let me know that they had “accidentally” stumbled up on a school of 20 and 30 pound stripers, in 8 feet of water, while searching for schoolies. They put their 12 pound light tackle spinning setups to the test and managed to boat bass up to 32 pounds on small swimming plugs meant for 20 inch stripers and small bluefish.

Now that is a great surprise, and I expect there to be more surprises just like that reported throughout Buzzards Bay this coming week.

In this report we’ll cover what’s been happening in the Bay as well as what to expect over the next several days.

A Double Header of Tautog and Stripers from Shore

cape cod tautog fishing

Catching tautog from shore on Cape Cod is not something I have ever tried before. But after seeing tautog all over the place this past week while surf fishing for stripers, I decided I had to give it a try.

I am no tautog expert but I do know they absolutely love green crabs. Tautog have some serious teeth and powerful jaws which they use to crush up crabs and other crustaceans. If you want to catch a tog, then consider picking up some green crabs.

The other key is to find boulders or rock piles. Tog like to hang out around rocks, and fortunately for us surf casters, they tend to move in tight to shore during the spring.
