Cape Cod Fishing Forecast
The bass fishing around Cape Cod has, so far this season, been the absolute best it has been in years (at least in my opinion!).
I was speaking with a couple long time fishermen yesterday, guys who have fished the Ditch, Cape Cod Bay and the Outer Cape beaches for years. They agreed that the fishing so far this season has been nothing short of stellar – especially at the Canal.
“Absolutely epic” is how they have been describing the action at the Canal.
I agree with them. It seems like the main body of stripers, millions of bass, have decided to swim in closer to shore this season. Last season the fishing was much more hit and miss, at least for yours truly. This year I can’t go buy a gallon of milk without someone commenting on all the big bass they’ve been seeing.
The stellar start to this season makes good sense based on the huge amount of bait that is around. The waters off Cape Cod are very healthy this year, from the bottom of the food chain all the way up to the top. Fishing is most certainly a cyclical activity, and fortunately it seems like the 2012 season is on the uptick of that cycle.
I’ve heard of giant bluefins, bruiser bluefish and cow bass this week being caught in areas and in amounts that guys have not experienced in a long time. Something special is most certainly happening out there.
There was even a rare Beluga whale spotted of Provincetown and the Cape Cod Canal – go figure!
I can only imagine what’s going to happen to next. Needless to say, if you are heading out fishing this weekend I think you stand a great chance at finding some fish that are willing to bite.

Tight lines, good luck and have a great weekend!
