Squid Fishing off Cape Cod during 2021

A lot of people from My Fishing Cape Cod have been having fun squid fishing so far this 2021 season - myself included! If you're a member of MFCC then you can see everyone's squid updates here.

Last week on May 6th I met up with Ryan Henry of the Goose Hummock Shops for an afternoon of squid fishing. Ryan had never been squid fishing before, so I was hoping the squid would cooperate.

We met at 2:30pm and quickly noticed that the wind was howling out of the northwest. Our plan was to fish from my little 12 foot boat powered by an 8hp, but I was concerned that the seas would be too choppy.

Tautog & Scup Kayak Fishing | Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Tautog (also called blackfish) and scup (also called porgy) arrive in Cape waters during May and stick around throughout the spring, summer and fall.

Fishing Cape Cod for tautog and scup can be a lot of fun! Both species fight well and are often caught in the same spots using the same baits.

In the following video, I go fishing for tautog and scup from my kayak during early May of the 2020 season. Some of you might recognize this footage from episode 1 of season 4 of My Fishing Cape Cod TV.

Black Crappie Fishing in Massachusetts

Back on April 23 my friend Jeff and I ventured a little ways off Cape to a pond in southeastern Massachusetts in search of black crappies. For some reason black crappies never made it to the Cape in big numbers. 

On this day we were fishing from Jeff's little Jon Boat. Fishing from a Jon Boat with a trolling motor can be a highly effective way to freshwater fish on Cape Cod and throughout Massachusetts.

My First Cape Cod Canal Cruise of 2021

Last weekend on Saturday April 10th I splashed our family's boat the Miss Loretta. For this trip I was with my dad Jake and my friend Garet.

We purchased a new 150hp Evinrude Etech at the end of last season, so our goal for this trip was to just make sure everything ran smoothly.

Our secondary goal was to just check things out along the canal and enjoy our first boat cruise of the year. It was a bit chilly on the water but it felt pretty good to be back out there!
