Big Bluefish Are Around!

Yesterday at 12:30pm I drove to the town of Sandwich where I picked up my friend Garet for an afternoon fishing trip aboard my 21 foot Hydra Sport the Miss Loretta.

Some of you might recognize Garet from the articles he's contributed over the years to My Fishing Cape Cod. Garet also joins me on occasion at fishing expos and seminars throughout New England.

There was a moderate breeze from the north yesterday afternoon, but it was predicted to die down. I expected to have an enjoyable and calm evening on the water.

Finding some fish would be a bonus!

Flashing Striped Bass! – What Are They Doing? New Video Footage

A lot of people (myself included) are focused on fishing for false albacore and tuna right now. However, there are still some beautiful schools of striped bass roaming around. 🐟

I filmed these fish over a sand bar in about 8 feet of water in Cape Cod Bay on a beautifully sunny late-August afternoon. One of the most intriguing parts of this video is "flashing" striped bass behavior.

Friday September 3rd Cape Cod Fishing Report

The wind has quieted down and the torrential downpours have ended. The weather is clearing up and I think we might be in for a great weekend of fishing.

With light north winds predicted for today, I would expect Cape Cod Bay to be fishable for stripers and bluefish.

Intense Peanut Bunker Bass Blitz!

A lot of anglers from My Fishing Cape Cod are focused on false albacore right now. However, there have also been some impressive striped bass feeds happening throughout the region.

Back on August 19 I was fortunate to stumble across an intense peanut bunker bass blitz that was occurring in knee deep water. Instead of fishing, I decided to film the event so I could share it with members here on My Fishing Cape Cod.

This post was originally published on August 19th, 2019. With catches of albies now being reported inside our forum, I figured now would be a good time to re-publish this post.

False albacore usually show up in good numbers throughout Cape Cod and the Islands beginning in early September.

Personally I have not encountered any false albacore yet this season, but hopefully that will change soon! The first false albacore of the year could show up any day now.

Today I would like to share with you some helpful tips and strategies for fly fishing for albies here on Cape Cod.

This video was filmed during a taping of My Fishing Cape Cod TV, with Dave Steeves of the Goose Hummock Shops and TheMightyFish.com

The AMAZING Ocean Sunfish!

Ocean sunfish are often a common sight off Cape Cod during late summer and early fall. Cape Cod Bay and the Canal seem to be hotspots for these curious animals.

The following video was filmed in Cape Cod Bay during September of 2019. I figured I would share this video today as a reminder for everyone to keep an eye out for ocean sunfish while boating.

The Daily Report

A few weeks ago I received a call from Sean Davey, who is a member of My Fishing Cape Cod, and also the Boston area president of iHeart Media. Sean asked if I would be interested in contributing a 60 second daily fishing tip which would air Monday-Friday on the Cool 102 radio station.

Shortly thereafter I received another call from radio host Kevin Matthews about contributing a 60 second daily fishing report as part of the WXTK Newsradio 95 morning programming.

Obviously I jumped at both opportunities!
