My Fishing Cape Cod Membership

Our membership helps anglers of all ages and abilities (residents and visitors alike), by providing reports and information, and giving them the community support they need to catch more fish, learn the area, and fully enjoy the Cape Cod fishing experience.

 I am thankful for the site and everything that I have learned and continue to learn about fishing and the joy of living on the Cape with all its natural beauty.

I'll say my first year's membership was definitely $$$ well spent. What a great year! Best part was meeting some folks who are not only great fishermen, but just plain old good people. From adventures fishing new spots at night to riding heavy chop tossing docs, it was awesome.

stop us if any of this sounds familiar...

  • You want to make the most of your boating, vacationing, and fishing time on Cape Cod, and you want to share the experience with your friends and family.
  • You want to catch fish, but don't know where to start and what to use, and also where to go...
  • You're sick of the frustration of getting skunked & battling the learning curve...
  • Your catching fish and having success, and now you're interested in catching new species and discovering new areas.

If it does, then you know how difficult it can be to get quality fishing information, advice & support


I was fed up with hearing stories about good people with a passion for fishing, being left stuck and let down, thanks to:

  • Unfriendly anglers who  bash on beginners for asking simple questions...
  • Saltwater fishing's notoriously difficult learning curve that drives many new anglers to quit...
  • Lack of a good fishing network that you can rely on for support, information, advice and tips...

Thankfully, all of that is now behind you...

Introducing My Fishing Cape Cod Membership

Our mission is to help people catch fish and to instill an appreciation of nature. We do this by connecting anglers with one another, publishing trustworthy information, and creating entertaining fishing content on a regular basis.

Over 1,500 members (and growing). The two things everyone has in common is an appreciation of Cape Cod and a passion for fishing.

This includes beginner and experienced anglers who live on Cape Cod year round, part-time or visit the Cape on vacation. Join My Fishing Cape Cod to discover what it's like to explore and fish the Cape for stripers, bluefish, tuna & much more.

Membership Will Help You:

Build an outdoors lifestyle you love, re-connect with Cape Cod's natural world, and find the tranquility, solitude and peace that fishing can provide.

Tap into the collective knowledge & experience of an entire community of Cape Cod anglers and experts who support each other.

Eliminate the guesswork and stop going out blind and praying for fish to bite, by giving you information & intel to follow.

Finally get to grips with the technical side of fishing and managing your gear and tackle - saving you hours of frustration.

Learn how to cook what you catch, and impress your family and friends with delicious and healthy recipes for locally caught seafood.

Become infinitely better at keeping up-to-speed with what's biting and where, so that you have way more success and less skunkings.

Group Fishing Trips

Each year we organize around 35 group fishing trips. These trips provide an opportunity to go on a guided surfcasting or charter fishing trip at an affordable per-person rate. Members always get first dibs and the best prices on group fishing trips. 

In addition, members often go fishing with each other and organize their own trips, by posting to our private forum. 

The fishing was awesome, the people fun to be with, and the BSB dinner that night was delicious. We have more fillets in the freezer for a few more yummy dinners. Thank you for setting up these terrific charters!

What our members are saying...

"I joined MFCC when I first moved to the Cape. Over the next three seasons I caught my first bluefin, followed by 9 more tunas from 60 to 85 inches. I owe a big thank you to MFCC, captain Cullen of Cape Star Charters, and the many others who helped me get started."

Bob Hovey

professional charter captain

"I never miss a posting! I went from never catching a striper to catching them in my own neighborhood with the guidance from Ryan and this site. The reports read like good journalism-especially with the photos & videos."

Jane Simpson

member since 2012

"Thanks to the tips from Ryan and My Fishing Cape Cod I was able to catch my first striped bass this past summer. Suffice it to say that I'm hooked on surfcasting. Thank you for your kindness and generosity."

Joe Kovacs

member since 2015

I've gone from struggling to catching hundreds of stripers per year. Thank you to Ryan, and all the members of My Fishing Cape Cod. I have learned so much from listening to the podcasts, reading the insightful posts, lure suggestions, and the all-around great information.

Chris Goguen

member since 2015

I’m thrilled with the club! I LOVE the emails! I’m quite a bit less mobile than previously, but while I’m doing therapy and going forward, I love reading MFCC. I even dream about some of the adventures and it gives me another reason to push harder to live some myself! 

Bob Davin

member since 2023

My Fishing Cape Cod helped me land my dream job! A captain posted a first mate listing this spring on MFCC. Now I’m working as a mate on his boat. It’s incredible. Thanks for having such a great community!

Russ Glinos

Ryan - you've helped my son build up his confidence as a fisherman. I am not sure you really know what type of impression you have made on him. THANK YOU!

Kristin Walton

Do yourself a favor and get onboard with My Fishing Cape Cod today! My son and I have had amazing fishing adventures with MFCC, catching and bringing home fresh striped bass, blues, mackerel, black sea bass and more.

Tom Howie

I joined My Fishing Cape Cod because I wanted to get back into ocean fishing and surfcasting. Ryan has given me the opportunity to get the most out of my fishing experiences. If you enjoy fishing and want to become part of the MFCC community, try out the membership and test it out for yourself. I did and fishing has never been better.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I do with the membership during the offseason?

Most people who fish Cape Cod do so between May and October. For some people, their fishing season is even shorter than that due to work commitments, vacation schedules etc. For this reason, you are free to cancel your membership at any point, and then come back later. There's no long-term commitment required.

With that said, Cape Cod actually has plenty of offseason fishing opportunities. The months of November-April are great for freshwater fishing and other outdoors opportunities. Here at MFCC we don't stop producing content during the offseason and we continue to host a variety of offseason events. A lot of our members end up continuing with their membership year-round.

What happens if I decide to cancel my membership?

Obviously we'd love it if all of our members stuck around forever - but we've been around long enough to know that that's never going to happen! So, if you do decide to cancel obviously we'll be very sad, but you'll be able to do so with just a few clicks from within your account page. Or you can just ask us to cancel for you.

Once cancelled you’ll retain access to the site for any remaining time paid for, after which you’ll lose access to all of the content, community and live sessions.

I'm still at square one with fishing, is My Fishing Cape Cod right for me?

Absolutely - My Fishing Cape Cod covers every stage of learning, exploring and fishing on Cape Cod - from the very start, even if you've never caught a fish. In fact now is the perfect time for you to join My Fishing Cape Cod; as not only do we have resources that will take you through every step, but you'll also be able to get support and advice from within the community too, to help you through your fishing journey.

What types of fishing does My Fishing Cape Cod cover?

We focus on saltwater fishing and especially striped bass (which is the fish in our logo) as this is the type of fishing that the majority of our members are looking to do. That said, much of our content is relevant to other types of fishing, including tuna, albies, bluefish, fluke, flounder, tautog, sea bass, freshwater species and more.

I've been fishing my whole life, what can My Fishing Cape Cod do for me?

Assuming you want to keep growing your skills and fishing experiences, then My Fishing Cape Cod can help you discover how to catch different species of fish, and help you learn about fishing in different areas of the Cape (and beyond). Plus our community is eager to support you with working towards your future goals. This is certainly not a "beginner only" community - far from it! We've helped many experienced anglers have more fun on the water. Plus, a lot of our experienced anglers enjoy using My Fishing Cape Cod as platform for "giving back" and passing on their lifetime of information to the next generation of anglers. There's plenty of expertise on MFCC that you're sure to benefit from in your continued growth.

Is all of the content available straight away or is it time-released (drip fed)?

You get access to everything that's already inside My Fishing Cape Cod straight away! No waiting for content to be released to you, just jump in and start making use of the reports, articles, videos, podcasts, courses and forums straight away. We regularly update and add new material too - so your content library will continue growing.

Can I get one-on-one help and support?

We don’t provide in-depth private support or coaching - however you can send us questions via our interactive chat system and receive a reply direct to your inbox. You can also get feedback and advice any time from within our community, both from fellow members and ourselves (we’re in the community every day!)

What if I don't enjoy My Fishing Cape Cod membership?

We know you will LOVE your My Fishing Cape Cod membership, however, if for whatever reason you're not 100% satisfied in any way we have a 30 day money back guarantee (no questions asked). We want you to succeed, and know that if you become a member of  MFCC and really put your heart and soul into it... you will become a better angler!

Will a My Fishing Cape Cod membership still be useful if I fish off-Cape?

Yes! The majority of the content on My Fishing Cape Cod is specific to the Cape, but almost all of the strategies, tips and advice can be applied to catching stripers, bluefish, tautog and other species all throughout New England and beyond. We actually have a lot of members who live and fish hundreds of miles from Cape Cod, but still enjoy their membership.

Can I hire Ryan as a guide?

Due to his busy schedule, Ryan plans out his guided fishing trips well in advance. If you are a member of My Fishing Cape Cod, then you will be notified via email of any upcoming trips. Members always get the first opportunity to register for trips, before they are released to the public.

I'm not 100% sure what My Fishing Cape Cod membership is or if it's right for me, do you offer a trial so I can test it out?

We’re not currently offering a trial, however you can get a good feel for exactly what the membership is by browsing the free content on the site and following along with our email newsletter. If you still have questions, just let us know. You can contact us at anytime by clicking the turquoise chat bubble in the lower right hand corner of your screen.
